COLUMBIA, Mo. – University of Missouri gymnastic head coach Shannon Welker announced the addition of Lacey Rubin as an assistant coach, who joins Mizzou following a season with Arizona State.

“We are thrilled to have Lacey join our coaching staff,” Welker said. “Lacey comes to us after leading the beam team at ASU to a top-20 finish. Our entire team and staff were so impressed with her positive energy and ability to connect immediately. Lacey will immediately impact the University of Missouri Gymnastics program to compete for a spot at the NCAA Championships”

During her short stint at Arizona State, Rubin helped the Gym Devils to NCAA regionals for the fifth-straight year. Rubin primarily coached the beam squad, which ended the season ranked No.19 in the nation, with a season-high of 49.475 set at regionals. 

In 2023, Arizona State had a record-breaking campaign, finishing 15th in the country. The Gym Devils went on to upset then-No. 4 Utah, set a program-record road score in a win over Washington and deal then-No. 11 Oregon State its first loss of the season. 

Prior to her time at Arizona State, she was a volunteer assistant coach at Penn State, where she helped lead individuals to regionals. Additionally, she has experience coaching at the club level at Centre Elite Gymnastics in Pennsylvania and New Image Gymnastics in New York.

As a student-athlete at Eastern Michigan, Rubin was named to the MAC All-Tournament Team twice. In 2017 and 2018, she was the MAC bar champion. She also helped the team to a MAC championship in 2016 and 2017. In the classroom, she was a distinguished scholar-athlete in 2017 and 2018.
