Getting to know Auburn Gymnast Justine Foster



Nov. 17, 2008

We want to start the preseason out by introducing the gymnasts to Tiger fans. Every Monday throughout this upcoming year, we will uniquely get to know one of our gymnasts by asking them interesting questions about themselves.

By doing this, everyone can get to know them a little better-- not just as an athlete, but as a student, a family member and a friend. This week, the spotlight is on Justine Foster from Raymond, Maine. Foster is currently a freshman at Auburn majoring in biomedical sciences.
