Tribe Men Gymnastics Compete at NCAAs

Palo Alto, Calif. - William and Mary’s men’s gymnastics squad ended the team portion of its 2008 schedule by placing sixth in its flight of the preliminary round of the NCAA Men’s Gymnastics Team Championships on Thursday afternoon in Palo Alto, Calif.

The Tribe put together a team score of 335.950, while the University of Oklahoma turned in the top qualifying score of the session (357.50), just edging out Penn State University (357.30) and the University of Michigan (354.30). Ohio State (351.80) and Nebraska (343.30) rounded out the field. There was another six team session competed later on the evening, with the top three squads from each advancing to tomorrow’s team championships.

A pair of Tribe individuals advanced to compete as individual tomorrow in the second of three rounds of the event. An athlete advances either as a member of a team, or by virtue of posting one of the top three scores from your session among the non-team qualifiers. On the floor exercise, senior Dave Locke (Natick, Mass.) posted the third-best score among non-qualifying individuals (15.200) and the eighth-best score overall. Sophomore James Prim (Hendersonville, N.C.) muscled his way to the team’s best individual performance of the evening, as he had the session’s top individual qualifying score on the rings (15.400) and was fifth overall in the session.

Senior Andrew Hunt (Upper Black Eddy, Pa.) ended what has been a fantastic career for the College by just missing out on moving forward on the high bar (13.900), finishing fourth among individuals. Prim was equally as close to adding a second event to his schedule of events for tomorrow evening, as he also turned in a fourth-place performance (pommel – 13.650).

Sophomore Derek Gygax (Stevensville, Md.) also had a solid afternoon, as he placed eighth among the all-arounders with a six-event total of 81.500.
