Top Marks for Southeast Gymnastics
The Southeast gymnastics team was named the 2011 Academic National Champion by the National Association of Collegiate Gymnastics Coaches/ Women. The achievement marks the third time in four years the team has won the prestigious award. The team’s grade point average was 3.91 during the 2010-11 academic year. That tied the mark set by the Redhawks in 2009 for the highest GPA for a team in the history of the award.
“Our ultimate goal is to always make sure every student-athlete receives a quality education and is given every opportunity to be successful both in the classroom and in the gym,” says Head Coach Kristi Ewasko.
All 17 team members were named to the NACGC/W All-Academic Team. The gymnastics program had nine student-athletes obtain a perfect 4.0 GPA during the 2010-11 academic year.
“I’ am very pleased with the hard work this team puts towards academics. They understand the reason they are here is to get an education first, while having the privilege to participate in the sport they love,” says Ewasko.
