K-grams kids help lift gymnasts

Katie Feenstra, 9, and Alex Eversmeyer, a senior in physical education and member of the student board for K-grams (Kids Programs), run in a three-legged race at the U-M women's gymnastics meet Jan. 31 against Michigan State University (right). Children at the Second Annual K-grams Family Night helped to make the crowd the fourth-largest ever to attend a women's gymnastics meet at Crisler Arena.

"Having all the kids made it a fun atmosphere," says head coach Bev Plocki. "It really helped give the team an energy boost, especially on floor." That boost helped lead U-M to victory, with Elise Ray (left) and Calli Ryals finishing 1-2 in the all-around. K-grams is a mentoring and learning program that pairs college and elementary school students. (Photos by Martin Vloet, U-M Photo Services)
