UNH'S AMANDA HALL NAMED EAGL GYMNAST OF THE WEEK

TOWSON, MD.-- Freshman gymnast Amanda Hall (Bremerton, Wash.) of the 27th-ranked University of New Hampshire women's gymnastics team was named co-winner of EAGL Gymnast of the Week honors after her outstanding performance in UNH's record-breaking victory over Towson on March 8.

For the second week in a row, Hall set the UNH record in the all-around as she earned a 39.45 score to tie for first place in the Wildcats' impressive victory over Towson. Hall, who was the co-winner of the EAGL Gymnast of the Week Award last week, broke the UNH all-around record of 39.425.

While leading UNH to a school record 196.675 team score, she finished second in the vault (9.90), second on beam (9.875), and fourth on floor (9.825).

She also notched a career-high score of 9.85 on bars tying her for third place in that event.

The Wildcats will return to action this weekend when the squad competes at West Virginia, along with Florida and Cornell. Looking at the rest of the regular season, UNH will travel to Rhode Island to compete vs the Rams with Yale on March 22. Then, on March 29, UNH will be the host of the EAGL Conference Championships. The top-notch gymnastics action begins at 6 p.m. at the Whittemore Center and is a must-see event for all gymnastics fans.

UNH also recently moved up to 27th from 29th this week in the NCAA national rankings following its victory over Towson. That is the highest ranking among all of the members of the EAGL conference.
