GW Gymnastics Honored at EAGL Banquet
Colonials Place Four on All-EAGL First Team; Kistler Named Assistant Coach of the Year
March 22, 2013
CHAPEL HILL, N.C. - The George Washington gymnastics team placed three gymnasts on the All-EAGL First Team, and assistant coach Barry Kistler was named the Assistant Coach of the Year at the EAGL Championship Banquet, held at University of North Carolina's Blue Zone Concourse Club at Kenan Stadium on Friday night.
Seniors Kayla Carto and Stephanie Stoicovy and junior Betsy Zander all earned First-Team All-EAGL honors. Stoicovy was named to the floor exercise and all-around first teams, while Carto earned the honors on the balance beam and Zander in the all-around.
Kistler, in his 15th season at GW, earned his first career EAGL Assistant Coach of the Year award. He has played a vital role in recruiting while raising the difficulty and consistency of the Colonials' uneven bars lineup as a member of head coach Margie Foster-Cunningham's staff. A 1997 graduate of Radford University, Kistler has been a part of four Atlantic 10 Championships and three 20+ win seasons at GW.
The Colonials also placed four gymnasts on the All-EAGL Second Team. Sophomore Elena Corcoran earned the honor on vault, while juniors Taylor Henderson and Kiera Kenney each were named to the uneven bars second team. Zander also earned a spot on the balance beam second team.
Additionally, Stoicovy was recognized as GW's most valuable player. The Erie, Pa., native enters the EAGL Championships as the third-ranked floor exercise performer in the conference with a 9.870 regional-qualifying score.
The Colonials compete in the EAGL Championships on Saturday afternoon at 2 p.m. at Carmichael Arena on the campus of the University of North Carolina.
