GW Gymnastics Hits Road for Kent State Quad Meet on Friday
Colonials to Face No. 21 Kent State, No. 12 Rutgers and Eastern Michigan in First Road Competition of Season
Jan. 16, 2014
WASHINGTON - The George Washington gymnastics team will compete in its first road event of the season against a pair of nationally-ranked opponents on Friday night at Kent State's Quad Meet. The Colonials will face off against the No. 21 Golden Flashes, No. 12 Rutgers and Eastern Michigan at 7 p.m. at the Memorial Athletic and Convocation Center.
GW is coming off of a season-opening win at last Sunday's Lindsey Ferris Invitational, the second straight season the Colonials have been victorious in their home-opening event. The Colonials swept the awards ceremony and have since garnered national rankings on both the vault (21st) and floor exercise (12th).
Graduate student Kayla Carto was named the Colonial of the Week after winning the all-around title on Sunday while freshman Chelsea Raineri had an exceptional collegiate debut, winning both the vault and floor exercise with identical scores of 9.850. Raineri also placed fourth in the all-around.
The Colonials dominated the field on Sunday, tallying the top five vault performances, the top four uneven bars routines and six of the top-seven floor exercise routines.
No. 21 Kent State defeated Southeast Missouri in its season opener last weekend while Eastern Michigan will be making its 2014 debut.
East Atlantic Gymnastics League (EAGL) rival and No.-12 ranked Rutgers knocked off New Hampshire, 195.050-193.875, in a season-opening conference matchup.
