FloGymnastics Names GW a Top 5 Most Improved NCAA Team
Colonials have gone from No. 35 in the rankings to No. 23 since 2015
WASHINGTON -- The George Washington gymnastics team has been named a Top 5 most improved NCAA team by FloGymnastics, the organization announced on Thursday.
GW, coming off of its third consecutive NCAA Regionals performance and best postseason score (195.625) in program history in 2017, has gone up in the rankings from No. 35 to No. 23 since 2015.
Much of the program’s success in recent years can be contributed to the six freshmen that head coach Margie Foster-Cunningham brought on for the 2015 season – Cami Drouin-Allaire, Jillian Winstanley, Sara Mermelstein, Liz Pfeiler, Alex Zois, and Madeline Seibold. Drouin-Allaire and Winstanley began competing all-around for GW in their freshman season and have consistently helped lead the team to regionals.
As a junior in 2017, Drouin-Allaire was the first gymnast in program history to make a repeat trip to the NCAA Championship as an individual qualifier and was the first gymnast in program history to capture the EAGL All-Around Championship after scoring 39.40 at the conference championship meet.
Winstanley was the first gymnast in GW history to be named the EAGL Scholar-Athlete of the Year and was recognized on the All-EAGL First Team for the all-around, vault, uneven bars and balance beam in 2017. The Arlington, Massachusetts, native also finished the season as the top-ranked all-around performer in the EAGL with a 39.325 RQS.
Although the Colonials will lose two of their top gymnasts from last year, Alex DeMoura and Chelsea Raineri, the team will add six freshmen to their roster in 2018-- Hannah Cohen, Gemma Guttenberg, Catherine Karpova, Olivia Norman, Chloe Vitoff, and Anna Warhol.
