TOWSON, MD.-- Sophomore all-arounder Amanda Hall (Bremerton, Wash.) was named EAGL Co-Gymnast of the week following her outstanding efforts in the University of New Hampshire's women's gymnastics victory over Pittsburgh on Jan. 31 in Lundholm Gymnasium (195.625-193.225). Hall has now received EAGL Gymnast of the Week honors twice during the 2004 season.
Hall led her team to victory over the Panthers after matching the UNH all-time record of 39.45 in the all-around, which she herself set on March 8, 2003 vs. Towson. On her way to the record, Hall placed first on bars with a judgement of 9.875, while placing second overall in vault (9.85), on beam (9.85) and in the floor exercise (9.85).
Looking at the conference highs this season, Hall's all-around score of 39.45 ranked as the fourth-best performance by any gymnast in the EAGL.
Hall and the UNH women's gymnastics team presently have the third-highest average team score in the EAGL conference with a mark of 194.706. Only the University of West Virginia and the University of North Carolina are slightly higher at 194.794 and 194.708, respectively.
UNH's team score of 195.625 was its highest of the season and is the second-highest total recorded by any EAGL squad in 2004.
Hall and the Wildcats return to action on Friday, Feb. 6 at San Jose State with Texas Women's University.
