CARMI, Ill. - Weekly honors continue to accumulate for Air Force junior Greg Stine (Houston, Texas), who was named the Collegiate Division Gymnast of the Week by the Collegiate Gymnastics Association (CGA) this afternoon. This award, which is voted on by the men's gymnastics coaches, comes just one day after he was named the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Gymnast of the Week.
He joined Oklahoma's Jonathan Horton, who won the weekly award for CGA Division I gymnasts.
Leading the team on the floor exercise (8.700), still rings (8.800) and vault (8.700) at the Peter Vidmar Invitational in Los Angeles, he guided the squad to its best team finish in over two years (192.300). The very next night in Tempe, Stine finished second on the floor exercise with a score of 9.000, becoming just the second Falcon to reach the nine-point plateau this year. In addition, he placed third on the vault (8.600) and tied for fourth on the high bar (8.200).
For the second straight weekend, the Falcons will compete in a pair of meets. Air Force will travel to Chicago, Ill., for competitions with the UIC Flames on Friday, March 9 at 7 p.m., and Sunday, March 11 at 2 p.m.
