No. 27 Gymnastics Visits West Virginia on Sunday
Colonials to face EAGL foe Towson at tri-meet
LEADING OFF: Coming off of a dominant first-place finish at its home opening Lindsey Ferris Invitational, the No. 27 George Washington gymnastics team will look to carry its recent success on the road when it visits West Virginia for tri-meet action with East Atlantic Gymnastics League (EAGL) rival Towson on Sunday afternoon at 2:00 p.m. at the WVU Coliseum.
LAST TIME OUT: The Colonials captured their sixth consecutive title at the 11th Annual Lindsey Ferris Invitational last weekend when they totaled 195.325 points behind team scores of 49.175 on vault, 48.425 on uneven bars, 48.950 on balance beam and 48.775 on floor exercise to top Ball State (191.775), Cornell (190.550), and Penn (190.375) in their home opener at the Charles E. Smith Center. GW finished first in each event while also capturing every individual title to propel them to victory.
VICTORY ON VAULT: GW saw its best event of the weekend on vault, where the squad posted a team score of 49.175, up .425 from their first week of competition. Cami Drouin-Allaire led the way with a solid 9.925, while Jillian Winstanley and fellow-senior Liz Pfeiler followed closely behind, tying for second-place with scores of 9.875. For Pfeiler, the 9.875 marked a new personal-best on vault, after previously earning a career-high of 9.75 on vault last season.
WINstanley: Co-captain Jillian Winstanley was named EAGL Gymnast of the Week for the fifth time in her career after putting forth an outstanding effort on Sunday, ending the day with a 39.425 and first-place finish in the all-around. The Arlington, Massachusetts, native concluded the meet on the podium in all four events – taking second-place on vault (9.875), first on bars (9.825), first on beam (9.900), and second on floor (9.825). Winstanley’s 9.900 on beam matched her personal-best and marks the seventh time in career that she has scored a 9.900 on the event. The finance major’s 39.425 is the highest all-around in EAGL so far this season and marks the 31st time in her career that she has scored a 39.00 or better in the all-around.
EAGL ELITE: Through two weeks of competition, GW sits atop the league standings with an average score of 194.550. The Colonials also boast the top vault score (48.963 avg.), are third on bars (48.963 avg.), and sit in fourth-place on both beam (48.125 avg.) and floor (48.925 avg.).
In individual competition, Drouin-Allaire paces the conference on vault (9.875 avg.) and in the all-around (39.250), while fellow-captain Winstanley is third on vault (9.850 avg.) and fifth on floor (9.838).
MORGANTOWN MEMORIES: GW returns to West Virginia’s WVU Coliseum after making its third consecutive trip, and 13th all-time appearance, to NCAA Regionals in Morgantown last season. At Regionals, the Colonials set a new postseason scoring record of 195.625, while Chelsea Raineri (vault) and Drouin-Allaire (all-around) made program history when the duo qualified for the NCAA Championship as individual qualifiers.
