Carto, Zander and Henderson Tabbed as 2014 GW Gymnastics Captains
Trio to Lead Largest Team in GW History
July 3, 2013
WASHINGTON - George Washington gymnastics head coach Margie Foster-Cunningham has announced that fifth-year graduate student Kayla Carto and rising seniors Betsy Zander and Taylor Henderson have been elected team captains for the 2013-14 academic year.
The trio will be leading the largest team in George Washington gymnastics history. Four incoming freshmen will be joining a roster of 14 returning letterwinners to bring the roster size to 18 gymnasts. The 2014 season marks the first year in program history with the full NCAA allowable scholarship allotment of 12.
Carto returns for a fifth year as a graduate student after missing her entire junior season due to a shoulder injury. The Davison, Mich., native is a three-time individual qualifier for the NCAA Regional and has competed at the event as a freshman and sophomore. Her election marks the second time she will serve as team captain in her career.
Zander is a two-time recipient of the Lindsey Ferris Attitude is Everything Award, given annually to the GW gymnast who best exemplifies the team spirit and leadership qualities of the late gymnastics alumna. The Millersville, Md., native is a two-time qualifier for NCAA Regionals and was an All-EAGL First Team selection in the all-around last season.
Henderson qualified for the NCAA Regional for the first time last season as an individual performer on uneven bars. The Newport, R.I., native was also the recipient of the GW gymnastics program's Coaches Award and Top Performer Award (uneven bars) last season.
The full 2014 recruiting class and competition schedule will be released at a later date.
