Gymnast Amanda Hall Dunn inducted to New Hampshire sports hall of fame

Amanda Hall Dunn, with husband Joe Dunn and sons Bryce and Dylan.  Amanda will be inducted into the University of New Hampshire sports hall of fame in June for her gymnastics career.

Central Kitsap did not even offer gymnastics as a sport, but in 2002 grad Amanda Hall, now Amanda Dunn, leaned on her determination and commitment to land a college scholarship in gymnastics at the University of New Hampshire. Next month her story adds a chapter, when she will be inducted into the University of New Hampshire Sports Hall of Fame.

Dunn set multiple school records while competing for Gail Goodspeed, who coached the sport at the Durham, New Hampshire, school for 40 years before retiring three years ago. To say Hall became a star at New Hampshire is to undersell it. She led the Wildcats in performances, but just as importantly was a team leader.

“She was one of the best gymnasts New Hampshire has had,” says Goodspeed. “She was consistent. If she was having a bad day at practice, you never knew it. She just focused on what she needed to do.
