Posted on March 11th, 2019 by

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. – Two members of the Gustavus gymnastics team were selected to the 2019 National Collegiate Gymnastics Association (NCGA) All Championship Team following the conclusion of the two regional meets on Saturday afternoon. Both Sam Ardy (Sr., Thousand Oaks, Calif.) and Amanda Malo (Sr., Greenwood, Minn.) were selected for the bars, while Malo was also selected for the floor.

The newly-implemented All-Championship Team recognizes the top 10 from each region, on each event, based on the top five finishers in each regional tournament, plus the top five highest season average scores going into the tournament. The All-Championship Team will be recognized during the award ceremony of the National Championship at the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh on March 23.

Non-team qualifying student-athletes that are on the NCGA All-Championship Team are also Individual National Tournament Qualifiers. The qualifying teams from the West are UW-Stout, UW-Oshkosh and UW-Whitewater. The qualifying teams from the East are Brockport, Ithaca and Cortland.

In addition to the All-Championship team, Gustavus has three student-athletes qualify for the NCGA National Championship in the all-around competition, including Ardy, Malo, and Brooke Merila (Fy., St. Michael, Minn.).
