Gymnastics Cracks Top 15 in 2018 Returning Routine Rankings
Colonials look to build off three consecutive NCAA Regional appearances
WASHINGTON -- The Balance Beam Situation, a popular gymnastics blog, has named the George Washington gymnastics squad a Top 15 program in their 2018 returning routine rankings.
The Balance Beam Situation evaluated which programs are currently best suited to succeed in 2018 by using only the routines that return from the 2017 season. The blog also factored in how many useful routines teams will need to get from transfers and freshman to replace those student-athletes that graduated in the spring.
The defending East Atlantic Gymnastics League Champions, GW is coming off of its third consecutive NCAA Regionals performance and best postseason score (196.625) in program history in 2017. The program has moved up in the national rankings from No. 35 to No. 23 since 2015.
The blog projects that GW will finish 15th in the nation with an end of season RQS of 196.205. Although the Colonials lost two of their top gymnasts from last year, Alex DeMoura and Chelsea Raineri, the team returns a solid core with two-time NCAA Championship Individual Qualifier Cami Drouin-Allaire, along with Jillian Winstanley, Sara Mermelstein, Liz Pfeiler, and Alex Zois.
GW will open its 2018 campaign at the University of Kentucky on January 5 and will host four home meets at the Charles E. Smith Center this season.
