RALEIGH, N.C. (April 7, 2012) – Sophomore Alexis Gunzelman (Tabernacle, N.J.) represented the Rutgers University gymnastics team at the NCAA Regionals on Saturday inside Reynolds Coliseum, putting together a 38.400 all-around score. It was the first Regionals experience for the all-arounder.
“Alexis had a really good showing on three events today, but came up short on the floor dismount,” said head coach Louis Levine. “I am very proud of the way that she competed all year to reach this stage and hopefully she can use this experience to help her and her teammates so that we qualify as a team next season.”
Gunzelman started the meet on the uneven bars, earning a 9.800 from the judges. She then recorded a 9.750 on the balance beam on her next rotation and followed with a 9.050 on the floor exercise. The sophomore finished her day with a 9.800 on the vault.
In just her second season in the program, Gunzelman was the most consistent performer for the Scarlet Knights. She was the only gymnast to compete all-around in every meet on the schedule this year on her way to First Team All-EAGL All-Around and EAGL Team MVP accolades.
She qualified for the NCAA Regionals as an individual with a 38.955 regional qualifying score.
