Meet Results

WILLIAMSBURG, Va. - The Navy gymnastics team finished its 2014 head-to-head series with William & Mary on Sunday with a 425.4 to 413.65 setback on the road at Kaplan Arena. For the second straight meet, the Mids performed admirably against the Tribe only to see William & Mary post another school-record for team points.

Mitchell Larios (So., Frisco, Texas) led Navy on Sunday with a first-place finish in the parallel bars courtesy of a career-high score and a runner-up finish in the vault. The second-year gymnast held off W&M's Landon Funicello in the parallel bars 14.40 to 14.35, but came up just 0.05 in the vault to the Tribe's Neal Courter (14.70) with a 14.65 score. Larios completed his strong overall performance with a fourth-place finish in the floor exercise with a 14.0 score.

Thomas Goodell (Jr., Hopkinton, Mass.) and Chris Junghans (Sr., Dunkirk, Md.) backed up Larios with strong individual performances of their own. Goodell finished second on the rings with a career-high score of 14.9. The third-ranked ring performer in the NCAA, Funicello defeated Goodell for first place with a score of 16.4.

Similar to Goodell, Junghans earned a second-place finish of his own. The senior matched his career-high with a 14.5 score on the high bar. Courter held off Junghans with a 14.7 score. Though he finished in third in the floor exercise, Junghans set a career-high with a 14.35-point performance.

Sophomore Eric Morrison (So., Broomfield, Colo.) rounded out Navy's leading scorers as he was the Midshipmen's top performer on the pommel horse with a third-place score of 14.4.

As a team, the Midshipmen registered a 69.60 in the floor exercise, 66.05 on the pommel horse, 71.05 on the rings, 70.00 on the vault, 66.70 on the parallel bars and 70.25 on the high bar.

In the all-around competition, Junghans registered a 84.00 score courtesy of a 14.35 in the floor exercise, 13.3 on the pommel horse, 14.5 on the rings, 14.0 on the vault, 13.5 on the parallel bars and a 14.5 on the high bar. He finished second to William & Mary's Daniel Potemski, who posted a final score of 85.85.

Navy will be back in action next Saturday, March 8 versus Temple in its final regular season home meet. The Mids and Owls will face off in an ECAC league contest at 2 p.m. in Macdonough Hall.
