1-19-22, Kim Landrus, Head Gymnastics Coach, NC State

Our Guest Speaker for this meeting will be Kim Landrus, Head Gymnastics Coach at NC State. Landrus was hired in May, 2017, after spending 15 years at Illinois – the last 7 as Head Coach.

Landrus had a stellar first year with the Wolfpack as she was named Southeast Region Coach of the Year by the National Association of Collegiate Gymnastics Coaches/Women. She helped lead NC State to an East Atlantic Gymnastics League (EAGL) Championship for the first time since 2013.

In 2021, Landrus led the Wolfpack to its highest national finish in 21 years with a final ranking of 15th in the country. Highlights included its first-ever NCAA Regional final appearance, along with being crowned the 2021 Regular Season Conference Champions. In addition to the historic season, the two-time EAGL Conference Head Coach of the Year (2019 & 2020) guided the Pack to earn 11 All EAGL conference honors in 2021. Nine of the 11 honors were first-team All-EAGL accolades, which tied the most in the league.
Additionally, the Wolfpack also continued to thrive academically under Landrus as 18 gymnasts were named to the All-EAGL Scholastic Team.

As a student-athlete at Iowa State University, Landrus was one of the most decorated gymnasts in Cyclone history. She was ISU’s first-ever national qualifier in 1997, a two-time All Big XII Conference pick, the school’s Most Valuable Gymnast in 1996 and 1997, and she recorded the first ‘Perfect 10’ in school history with a perfect performance on the floor exercise at the 1997 Big XII Championships. The four-year letter-winner was named ISU’s Woman Athlete of the Year in 1997 and was inducted into the Iowa State Hall of Fame in 2013, becoming the first Cyclone female gymnast to accomplish this feat.
