Gymnastics Earns Fifth Straight NACGC/W Team Academic All-America Accolades
Colonials' 2005 team GPA ranked ninth-best among Division I schools
Nov. 18, 2005
WASHINGTON, DC - The George Washington University gymnastics team has earned NACGC/W Academic All-America honors for the fifth consecutive year, as announced by the National Association of Collegiate Gymnastic Coaches/Women (NACGC/W) for the 2005 season.
As a team, the Colonials had an overall grade-point-average of 3.4829 to rank ninth among 58 NCAA Division I schools which had a 3.00 team GPA or better. GW also had eight gymnasts earn individual All-America honors. By doing so, it was one of just 22 schools to have at least eight individuals earn All-America accolades among the 68 institutions which earned recognition.
Recent graduates Meagan Wilson (Lilburn, GA) and Stefanie Tocco (Melrose, MA), seniors Tiffany Jones (Ravenna, OH) and Heather Kaufman (Austin, TX), juniors Jess Guilbert (Leesburg, VA) and Emily Howarth (Columbus, OH), sophomore Abbey Myles (Waxhaw, NC), and former Colonial Imogen Dall each earned individual Academic All-America accolades for GW.
The academic honor for Tocco was her fourth consecutive, while Wilson, Jones and Dall each were recognized for the third straight year. Guilbert, meanwhile, was a repeat selection from last season.
GW also was one of seven East Atlantic Gymnastics League (EAGL) schools to earn 2005 NACGC/W Academic All-America honors. The Colonials had the second-best GPA among the group led by North Carolina. Maryland ranked just a few spots below the Colonials, followed by Rutgers, West Virginia, Pittsburgh and New Hampshire.
Southern Utah claimed its fifth straight academic national crown with the top overall team GPA at 3.714, while UNC was second (3.6719) and Denver third (3.5679).
