Illinois native Alina Cartwright returns to the Seawolf staff for her second season in 2018 and her first as the program's top assistant coach.

In her first season at UAA, she helped the Seawolves twice break the program's team record on balance beam, and coached individual beam record-breakers Kendra Daniels and MPSF beam co-champion Sophia Hyderally.

After completing her competitive career at Michigan State in 2015, Cartwright served as a student assistant for the Spartans in 2016, helping the team qualify for the NCAA Championships.

Cartwright was a 4-year letterwinner at MSU, where she earned First Team All-Big Ten Conference honors as a junior in 2014. She sprung a career-high all-around of 39.125 in 2013 and was a member of the Spartans' 2012 squad that qualified for the NCAA Championships.
