USA Gymnastics has named Riley McCusker of MG Elite to its final wildcard spot for the AT&T American Cup, which will be held Saturday at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey.
McCusker, a first-year senior, had an outstanding year in 2016. At the 2016 P&G Championships in St. Louis, she took second in the all-around, bars, beam and floor in the junior division. At the Secret U.S. Classic in Hartford, she took fourth in the bars and ninth in the all-around in the junior division and capped off her year by finishing fifth in the all-around at the American Classic in Huntsville, Texas.
