Aug. 12, 2013
WASHINGTON - George Washington gymnastics head coach Margie Foster-Cunningham has announced that Chelsea Raineri (Telford, Pa.), Alex DeMoura (Garden City, N.J.), Kaila Soloman (Woodcliff Lake, N.J.) and Kaitlin Cowles (Canton, Conn.) will join the Colonials' gymnastics program in 2014.
The quartet of incoming freshmen increases the Colonials' roster size to 18, the largest in program history.
"These four student-athletes each bring the drive, determination, talent and enthusiasm that GW gymnasts are known for," said Coach Foster-Cunningham. "There is a lot of skill in this class and I expect each of these newcomers to contribute to our team goals right away."
Raineri is a prolific vault performer from Telford, Pa., who has qualified for the Level 10 Junior National Championships in each of the past three years. She was also a 2009 Level 9 National All-Around Champion while competing for the club gym Silvia's Gymnastics and was also a Level 10 state and regional champion last year.
DeMoura is a two-time Level 10 National Qualifier from Garden City, N.Y. Competing for the New Image Gymnastics Academy, DeMoura finished first on the floor exercise, fourth on both uneven bars and vault and third overall in the all-around at the 2013 Region 6 Championships.
Soloman, a native of Woodcliff, N.J., competed at ENA Gymnastics for over 16 years. She placed second at the 2012 Level 10 State Championships and is a two-time Level 10 Regional competitor. Additionally, she placed second on balance beam at the 2011 Level 9 Eastern National Championships and third in the all-around at the 2011 Level 9 Regionals.
Cowles placed first in the all-around and uneven bars at the 2011 Level 10 Connecticut State Championships, competing for the club team, New England Gymnastics Express. She qualified for the JO National Championships in 2011 and was the recipient of the Distinguished Scholar Award at Canton High School all four years.
