Seven GW Gymnasts Earn NCAA Regional Bids
Stoicovy, Zander, Corcoran, Henderson, Kenney, Carto and Roy Earn Bids to Gainesville Regional
March 26, 2013
INDIANAPOLIS - Seven George Washington gymnasts earned bids for the National Collegiate Women's Gymnastics Championships Regionals the NCAA announced on Monday afternoon.
Seniors Stephanie Stoicovy, Kayla Carto and Nefertiti Roy, juniors Betsy Zander, Kiera Kenney and Taylor Henderson and sophomore Elena Corcoran all received bids as individual performers to compete at the Gainesville Regional hosted by the University of Florida on Saturday, April 6.
Stoicovy and Zander each qualified as all-around performers while Henderson earned a bid as an uneven bars event specialist. Kenney (bars), Carto (balance beam) and Roy (floor exercise) were each named event alternates.
Stoicovy and Zander earned a bid as all-around performers with the highest regional-qualifying scores (RQS) in the region not on one of the six qualifying teams. The remaining Colonials' gymnasts earned a bid by virtue of their individual event RQS.
Each of the seven gymnasts helped the GW Gymnastics team to its highest team score and finish in program history at last weekend's EAGL Championship. The Colonials finished fourth out of eight teams with a 194.750, just missing out on a team regionals bid.
Zander finished tied for second place in the all-around with a career-high tying 39.150, while Stoicovy tied for second on the floor exercise with a 9.850.
The top two teams and the top two all-around competitors (who are not on an advancing team) from each regional will receive an automatic berth to the NCAA national championships hosted by UCLA in Los Angeles, Calif., April 19-21.
In addition, the event winners at each regional site will advance to the national championships (in that event only) if they are not part of a qualifying team or an all-around qualifier.
