January 20, 2012 by Women's Gymnastics Team
The season has started and Tribe Gymnastics is off to a solid start! Our first competition took place at George Washington University with four other visiting teams: North Carolina, Cornell, Penn, and Temple. The Tribe took fifth place, missing third place by only two tenths of a point. Be sure to check out William and Mary’s Women’s Gymnastics Facebook page for videos from the meet! Senior, and Captain, Kristin Milardo led the Tribe, winning third place in the all-around. Kristin has also received the title of ECAC Gymnast of the Week. Great work, Kristin!
The team had a great time during winter break training. We spent a lot of time together in and out of the gym bonding. However, classes are back in session this week, and the Tribe is getting back into a routine schedule and is ready for another successful semester!
Everyone is working extremely hard and cleaning up their routines to fight for those few extra tenths everywhere! We continue to have pressure sets on each event throughout the week to simulate and gear up for our next upcoming meet. This Saturday, the Tribe will be traveling to Maryland to compete against Towson and Alaska Anchorage on Sunday, January 22 at 1:00pm! One more practice to go!
