Colonials making third consecutive trip to regionals after EAGL Championship win
NCAA Regionals Bracket | Tickets
WASHINGTON - The No. 20 and East Atlantic Gymnastics League (EAGL) Champion George Washington gymnastics team was selected to compete at the upcoming NCAA Morgantown Regional on Saturday, April 1, at the WVU Coliseum in Morgantown, West Virginia.
Monday's selection marks the third consecutive trip to regionals as a team for the Colonials and the 13th such trip in program history.
The fourth-seeded Colonials will compete against No. 6 Alabama (No. 1 seed), No. 7 Michigan (No. 2 seed), No. 18 Southern Utah (No. 3 seed), host West Virginia (No. 5 seed) and Kent State (No. 6 seed).
Advancing from regional competition to the national championships will be a total of 12 teams and 12 all-around gymnasts and event specialists. The top two teams and the top two all-around competitors (who are not on advancing team) from each regional will receive an automatic berth to the national championships. In addition, the event winners at each regional will advance to the national championships (in that event only) if they are not part of a qualifying team or all-around qualifier.
On Saturday the Colonials posted their best-ever EAGL Championship score (196.275) to win their second conference title in the last three seasons. Cami Drouin-Allaire won individual event titles in both the all-around and vault while classmate Jillian Winstanley was honored as the Scholar-Athlete of the Year. Additionally, head coach Margie Foster-Cunningham won her second straight Coach of the Year Award.
At last year's NCAA Athens Regional, the Colonials posted the highest postseason score in program history with a 195.55 en route to a fifth-place finish.
