According to Rutgers head gymnastics coach Louis Levine, the Scarlet Knights cannot compete with the best teams in the country if they continue to put up performances like in last Friday’s victory against Brown. The Knights have not lost all season en route to their best start since 1978, but scored under 195 for the first time this season against the bears.
For a college athlete, especially one without professional or Olympic aspirations, their senior year is supposed to be a time to turn their experience into their best performances as they play the sport they have dedicated their lives to for the last time. Jenna Zito’s senior season for the Rutgers gymnastics team followed that path at the start of 2013.
Following a season-ending injury in RU’s second meet of 2013, senior Jenna Zito has proved a leader on and off the floor.
Many athletes are elated following a career performance in front of a home crowd, especially when their team came out with a win. Following the Rutgers gymnastics team’s win Friday against Brown, senior Alexis Gunzelman was not. “She obviously had a great meet, but it’s more than just one person,” said head coach Louis Levine yesterday.
Senior Alexis Gunzelman has been a consistent starter for the past four years. She is performing all-around this season.
In its poorest outing to date, the No. 18 Rutgers gymnastics team snuck a win out to continue its perfect season. An uncharacteristically weak performance on the balance beam led to a team score of 193.025 to Brown University’s 190.625. The Scarlet Knights (6-0) came short of a 195 score for the first time this season.“You can’t struggle as bad as we did on beam and expect to put up a 195,” said head coach Louis Levine. “Really it comes down to that one event.
Senior Alexis Gunzelman led Rutgers with 9.725 on the beam, an event Knights struggled in Friday against Brown.
The No. 18 Rutgers gymnastics team welcomes Brown University tonight looking for its best start since the team opened 7-0 in 1978. The Scarlet Knights will be without freshman April Baker due to an undisclosed injury. Head coach Louis Levine was tight-lipped when discussing it. “She’s going to be out for a little while, not really sure how long,” Levine said.
Gunzelman has performed well all-around, compiling a high score of 39.250.
Often described by head coach Louis Levine as one of the best gymnasts in the country, junior Luisa Leal has lived up to that billing in her first healthy season since her freshman year. Her all-around performance is a key factor in the No. 18 Rutgers gymnastics team’s third 5-0 start in program history and first since 1994. Leal currently holds the second highest all-around average in the Northeast region and 20th best in the country, with a 39.200 in Monday’s most recent rankings.
Junior Luisa Leal has recovered from a heart disease, broken foot and sprained neck to help lead Rutgers.
Last season, the Rutgers gymnastics team did not score more than a 195 until its fifth time out. The Scarlet Knights eclipsed it three times in their first three meets this season, leading to a 5-0 record. The team traveled to Columbus, Ohio for a dual meet Sunday with No. 19 Ohio State. No. 16 Rutgers topped its previous two scores with 195.275 en route to its first-ever victory against a Big Ten opponent.
Junior Luisa Leal won the all-around competition Sunday at No. 16 Ohio State with an all-around score of 39.250.
With about a month left until the team’s opener Jan. 18 against New Hampshire, the Rutgers gymnastics team has higher hopes than ever. The Scarlet Knights achieved four of the top-six scores in program history last season. The Knights earned a 195.00 score during a quad meet Feb. 2 with Brown, Pittsburgh and Southern Connecticut — their first time eclipsing the 195 mark in 13 years.
Senior Alexis Gunzelman returns after two years participating in the all-around for Rutgers. After earning EAGL First-Team All-Uneven Bars last year, Gunzelman hopes the rest of the team makes it to the NCAA Regionals. All four who made them last year return for the Knights.
Despite falling just shy of qualifying for the NCAA Regionals, the Rutgers gymnastics team sent four individuals to the postseason Saturday at West Virginia – its most qualifiers since 2004. Junior Luisa Leal — named EAGL Team MVP on March 22 — earned a 39.175 all-around competition score to highlight the Scarlet Knights action. The Cali, Colombia, native finished tied for sixth among 17 gymnasts — only 0.025 points short of second place and qualification for the NCAA Championships.
Luisa Leal called together her demoralized teammates Saturday in Chapel Hill, N.C., after the Rutgers gymnastics team failed to qualify for the NCAA Regionals. The team was frustrated with being foiled at the threshold of the top 36 nationally, but the junior implored the Scarlet Knights to not lose sight of the big picture. Despite failing to finish strong at the East Atlantic Gymnastics League Championships, Rutgers raised the standard of its program this season with historic accomplishments.
Slowly but surely, Louis Levine consoled his gymnasts. As members of the Rutgers gymnastics team trudged off the floor of the Carmichael Arena in Chapel Hill, N.C., on Saturday, the head coach urged his team to keep perspective. The Scarlet Knights finished seventh among eight teams at the East Atlantic Gymnastics League Championships with a score of 193.925 — a mark Rutgers knew would not land it a spot in the top 36 for the NCAA Regionals.
Junior co-captain Alexis Gunzelman earned a 9.825 on bars to lead the Knights at the EAGL Championships.
