Air Force will face the Pioneers at 6 p.m., on Saturday, Jan. 12.
Kyle Georges is in his fifth season as an assistant coach for the Air Force women's gymnastics program. Named the top assistant coach in the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation in 2011, he became just the second Air Force assistant to ever claim that distinction from the conference.
Georges, who has served as the lead coach on the uneven bars for the past two seasons, guided Linnaea Hance to the national title on that event at the 2014 USAG Championships. Since his arrival, Air Force has accounted for three conference champions, two USAG champions and 13 USAG All-Americans with 37 total selections. In addition, the squad has reached the team finals of the USAG Championships every year.
The Falcons have improved their scores during each year of Georges' tenure, culminating last season with eight of the 10 highest team totals since 2007. Air Force impacted the list of Academy records for the first time in eight years during the 2013 season, breaking a team record on the uneven bars (48.925) and an individual record on the vault (9.925, Jessica Wallander). The Falcons improved the uneven bars score to 49.300 in 2014, while accounting for just the second team score of at least 195 points (195.300) in Academy history.
Georges joined the program in December 2010, just 10 days after graduating from the University of New Mexico with a degree in university studies and a concentration in physical education and communication.
A native of Albuquerque, N.M., Georges started participating in gymnastics at the age of three. At 16, after eight years of competing, Georges began coaching. Since then, he has coached a wide variety of gymnastics to over 600 athletes, including pre-teen to adult classes. In addition, Georges has coached tumbling to several high school cheerleading teams in the Albuquerque area.
Georges was married in October 2011 to the former Jennifer Birrell of Albuquerque, N.M.
