Jan. 13, 2009
WOODLAND, Calif. - Air Force senior gymnast Abbey Rogers was named the first Mountain Pacific Sports Federation's Gymnast of the Week of the 2009 season, the league office announced this afternoon (Jan. 13). It is the fourth such honor of Rogers' career.
In addition to winning the all-around, Rogers claimed a share of three event titles during the Falcons' season-opening triangular meet with Wisconsin-Eau Claire and Wisconsin-La Crosse on Jan. 9. The team captain won the floor exercise outright with a score of 9.775, while tying for the top score on the uneven bars (9.425) and balance beam (9.550). Rogers, who finished second on the vault with a team-leading score of 9.600, posted a combined score of 38.350 to win the all-around.
Pacing the team on every event, Rogers helped guide the Falcons to a winning team score of 188.125 and a perfect 2-0 record on the season.
The Falcons travel to Rogers' hometown of Pittsburgh, Pa., this weekend (Jan. 17), when they compete at the Pittsburgh Invitational. In addition to Air Force and host Pitt, the four-team meet includes Bridgeport and New Hampshire.
