LSU gymnastics adds All-American transfer from Florida
Tigers gymnastics coach Jay Clark proved his worth as a recruiter again this week with the addition of a former All-American.
Savannah Schoenherr, who spent the last several years with the Florida Gators, will transfer to LSU.
Originally from Athens, Georgia, Schoenherr was a freshman All-SEC selection in 2019. Her vault performance that year earned her Second Team All-American honors.
Schoenherr hasn’t competed since 2022 and missed all of 2023 with a foot injury.
Competing in the All-Around at one of the SEC’s premier programs in Florida, she brings a veteran presence to a team already returning a lot.

Schoenherr wasn’t LSU’s only recent portal addition. Jillian Hoffman is also slated to join the Tigers after transferring from powerhouse Utah.

LSU faced plenty of adversity last year with injuries to key contributors. Despite that, the Tigers marched all the way to a national title appearance.
Next year, LSU should be healthier and more experienced. It has the chance to be one of Clark’s best teams.
LSU have arguably one of the most legendary senior classes of all time💜
