William & Mary Tops Navy on Sunday, 204.6-202.5

March 5, 2006

ANNAPOLIS, Md. - Senior team captain Ben Peterman (Amherst, Mass.) registered a season-high tally in the all-around as the Mids notched a season-high team score, but William & Mary won four events in defeating Navy, 204.6-202.5, on Sunday afternoon in Macdonough Hall. The Midshipmen fall to 12-6 on the year, while the Tribe upped their mark to 8-7.

Peterman recorded a score of 8.0 in each of the six disciplines to record an all-around mark of 50.2 points, tying the team's best all-around score for the season with senior Grant Regelin (Columbia, Md.). The senior's best performance came on the vault, where he scored a 9.15 to place second. Peterman finished third on the parallel bars with an 8.25-point showing and followed with a fourth-place mark of 8.5 points on the high bar.

Sophomore Christopher Tam (Draper, Utah) placed second in the all-around competition after accumulating 49.6 points. Tam finished third overall on the pommel horse with an 8.35 and later matched his season-high with an 8.35 on the still rings to place fifth.

Navy's first event victory came on the pommel horse, as the Midshipmen posted three of the top-four marks to outscore William & Mary, 33.1-32.15. Freshman Adam Stanton (Centennial, Colo.) scored a season-best 8.55 to lead Navy gymnasts and finish second. In addition to Tam's performance, freshman Joseph Atzenbeck (Broomfield, Colo.) landed fourth with an 8.2.

The Midshipmen owned the top-two efforts on the vault to top the Tribe, 36.0-35.55, for Navy's other event victory. Sophomore Brandon Cook (Longmont, Colo.) won the event with a career-best 9.4-point showing and Peterman's 9.15 was good for second.



Cook also placed second in the floor exercise with an 8.85, while junior Sean Blackman (Fayetteville, Ga.) earned a 9.0 from the judges to finish second on the still rings.

Navy completes its regular season on Saturday, March 18, with a home meet against Temple in Macdonough Hall, starting at 1 p.m.
