OSBORN NAMED NCGA EAST ALL-AROUND GYMNAST OF THE WEEK

Providence, R.I.-Rhode Island College sophomore Courtney Osborn (Pomfret, CT) was named the National Collegiate Gymnastics Association (NCGA) East Region All-Around Gymnast of the Week for her performance in the Anchorwomen’s, 179.275-164.050, win over Ithaca at The Murray Center on Sunday afternoon.

 

Osborn was the lone all-around competitor of the day, finishing with a 9.225 on vault, an 8.450 on bars, a 9.225 on beam and a 9.025 on floor for an all-around score of 35.925. She finished third overall on beam.

 

 

 

In addition to being a season-best score for the Anchorwomen (1-5), the win also snaps a 16-match dual competition losing streak dating back to Mar. 4, 2012. It also marked the first time RIC has defeated or finished ahead of another NCAA women's gymnastics program in 33 straight competitions dating back to the 2012 ECAC Championships.

 

In upcoming action, the Anchorwomen will travel to Ithaca to take part in the Ithaca Bomber Invitational on Sunday, Feb. 28.
