Four GW Gymnasts Advance to NCAA Fayetteville Regional
Stoicovy, Blount, Kenney & Corcoran to Represent GW Gymnastics on National Stage
March 26, 2012
WASHINGTON - Junior Stephanie Stoicovy highlights a group of four George Washington gymnasts that will continue their individual seasons at the NCAA Fayetteville Regional on April 7.
Stoicovy qualified as an all-around performer after completing the season as the fourth-best gymnast that is not on a qualifying team with a regional qualifying score (RQS) of 38.670.
The junior from Erie, Pa., was named the Colonials' Most Valuable Player and was selected to the All-EAGL First Team for both floor exercise and all-around at the EAGL Championship Banquet on Friday evening.
Blount, an All-EAGL First Team selection on balance beam, qualified as an individual event specialist on the beam along with Kenney (uneven bars) and Corcoran (vault). All three of GW's individual event specialists finished as the top-ranked gymnast on their respective events outside of student-athletes on regional qualifying teams.
Senior captain Amanda Murphy, an All-EAGL Second Team selection for the all-around, will be traveling with the team to serve as an alternate to Stoicovy.
The top two all-around performers that are not on a national-qualifying team will advance to the NCAA Women's Gymnastics Championship, April 20-22, in Duluth, Ga., at The Arena at Gwinnett Center.
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 an all-around qualifier.
