GW Gymnastics Honored at Friday's EAGL Banquet
Raineri Named Rookie of the Year; Colonials Place Four Gymnasts on All-EAGL First Teams
March 21, 2014
DURHAM, N.H. - Freshman Chelsea Raineri was named the East Atlantic Gymnastics League (EAGL) Rookie of the Year and four other George Washington gymnasts garnered All-EAGL honors at Friday night's Championship Banquet.
Raineri becomes the first Colonial gymnast to garner an end-of-year major award since George Washington joined the conference in 2005. The Telford, Pa., native was also honored as a First Team All-EAGL performer on both floor exercise and vault in addition to a Second Team All-EAGL selection on uneven bars.
A three-time Rookie of the Week selection this season, Raineri concluded the regular season ranked second in the EAGL with a regional-qualifying score (RQS) of 9.880. She also owns the third-highest vault routine in program history after hitting a 9.925 on Feburary 9. She has also been a standout on floor exercise where she has scored a 9.85 or better in five meets, highlighted by a 9.90 on March 3. Raineri steadily improved on uneven bars throughout the season, culminating in a season-high 9.875 in the final meet of the regular season.
Carto earns her second career first-team honor after being named to the first team uneven bars squad in 2013. The Davison, Mich., native was also named to the All-EAGL Second Team for vault and honored on Friday night as George Washington's Most Valuable Player.
Kenney lands on the All-EAGL First Team for uneven bars for the first time in her career after two previous second-team selections. The Warrington, Pa., native enters Saturday's championship meet as the second-ranked uneven bars performer in the conference with a RQS of 9.830.
Zander's First Team Balance Beam recognition is the second time in her career she has been named to an All-EAGL First Team (All-Around in 2013).
Junior Elena Corcoran was named to the All-EAGL Second Team for vault, the second straight season she has earned that recognition. Corcoran ranks tied for 12th in the conference with a RQS of 9.795.
The Colonials will compete in Sunday's EAGL Championship at the University of New Hampshire's Whittemore Center on Saturday at 2:00 p.m. Click here (link) for a preview of the event.
