WASHINGTON, DC - The 2010 GW Women's Gymnastics team's season concluded during last weekend's EAGL Championships, but the Colonials will continue their individual season by sending three qualifiers to the 2010 Morgantown Regional hosted by West Virginia University on Saturday, April 10th.

The Syracuse, NY native qualifies for NCAA Regional competition in the all-around after not competing in the all-around her first three seasons on Foggy Bottom. It is Quinn's second time qualifying for NCAA Regional competition.
Freshman Kayla Carto also qualifies for NCAA Regional's in her first season with the Colonials. Carto also scored a career-high 38.700 at the EAGL Championships and will look to continue her rise into postseason competition.
