Paige Zaziski, a senior for the Michigan Wolverines - Women's Gymnastics team, was kind enough to share some of her experiences as a student-athlete with us for our second 'Meet the Athletes' episode.
Paige is a General Studies (Psychology & Marketing) major, originally from Chesterfield, Michigan, and transferred to the Wolverines after her sophomore year from Arkansas. The numerous and prestigious awards Paige received throughout her college career are a testament to her talent, work ethic, and dedication towards the sport. Paige, however, is not just known for her athletic accomplishments. She is also a fan-favorite and appreciated amongst her teammates for her humor and unique post-routine celebrations. We hope you all get to enjoy learning more about Paige as much as we did. We thank Paige for dedicating some time to our interview and wish her nothing but the best for the rest of her athletic career and her post-graduation goals. Thank you Paige!
