Tribe Pair Captures Gold at ECAC Gymnastics Individual Championships

West Point, NY - The William and Mary duo of senior Andrew Hunt (Upper Black Eddy, Pa.) and Sophomore James Prim (Hendersonville, N.C.) each struck gold at the Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) Individual Event Championships on Saturday evening. The event, hosted by the United States Military Academy, saw each Tribe gymnast capture their first career conference individual crown, as Hunt took home top honors on the high bar (14.55), while Prim was the meetís best on the rings (15.100).

Along with the individual golds, the College also had a coach honored, as 12th-year assistant coach Pete Walker was honored by the league coaches as the ECACís Assistant Coach of the Year. The distinction is the second for Walker in the last three years, as he was also recognized after the 2006 season.

Overall, W&M had six student-athletes earn 11 All-East honors (top six at todayís individual finals). Hunt also captured All-East honors with a third place finish on the parallel bars, while Prim also captured a bronze finish of his own on the pommel horse (13.850). One has to go back to the 1995 season to find the last time a W&M squad has captured more individual event gold (that year saw the team earn three event titles). Hunt and Prim had each entered the weekend with one career All-East honor.

While he didnít win a title, senior Dave Locke (Natick, Mass.) was no less golden on the evening, as he brought home a team-high three All-East certificates and will graduate among the schoolís all-time leaders in career honors (with seven total). Locke turned in a pair of third-place showings (on floor Ė 14.950 and vault - 15.350), while also placing fifth on the parallel bars (14.400).

Fellow senior Aaron Ingram (Paxton, Mass.) put a solid finish on his weekend by capturing a pair of All-East honors, finishing third on the pommel horse (13.850) and sixth on the parallel bars (14.300). He will graduate with a career total of five All-East certifi-cates.

Sophomores Josh Fried (Gwynedd Valley, Pa.) and Sloan Crawford (Burlington, Ontario, Canada) rounded out the medalist for the Tribe on the evening, as the duo placed fourth and fifth, respectively, on the floor exercise. The honor was the first career All-East certificate for Crawford, while Fried picked up his second honor in as many years on the event.
