Colonial of the Week - GW Gymnastics' Cami Drouin-Allaire
Freshman Qualified for NCAA Gymnastics Championships at NCAA Auburn Regional
Hometown: Shoreham, N.Y.
High School: Shoreham-Wading River
Drouin-Allaire led GW at its first NCAA Regionals appearance since 2002 by placing fifth in the all-around at Saturday's NCAA Auburn Regional in Auburn, Alabama and earning a berth to the NCAA Women's Gymnastics Championships as an all-around individual qualifier.
Drouin-Allaire is just the second gymnast in program history to advance to the NCAA Championships as an individual performer, joining JJ Tolhurst (1994).
The Shoreham, New York, native was GW's top performer on uneven bars, scoring a season-high 9.85 to tie for fifth place on Saturday night. She also added scores of 9.875 on vault (T-8th), 9.75 on balance beam (T-25th) and 9.70 on floor exercise (T-26th).
Her all-around score of 39.175 tied her for fifth place at the regional with Iowa's Angel Metcalf, but she advances to the National Championships based on her head-to-head vault score; Drouin-Allaire scored 9.875 to Metcalf's 9.825.
Drouin-Allaire will travel to Fort Worth, Texas, to compete at the NCAA Championships at the Fort Worth Convention Center Arena on April 17-19.
