Jan. 29, 2014
ANNAPOLIS, Md. – Navy freshman Jonny Tang (Malvern, Pa.) was named the Corvias ECAC Men’s Gymnastics Rookie of the Week on Wednesday in recognition of his efforts at the Navy Open this past weekend.
One week after making his collegiate debut at the West Point Open and finishing sixth in the all-around competition, Tang improved his standing by earning a third place finish at the Navy Open on Saturday. The freshman enhanced his scores in four of the six disciplines in the home meet. Tang raised his pommel horse score from a 12.8 on Jan. 17 to a 13.45 on Jan. 25, his vault score from 13.55 to 13.9, his parallel bar score from 12.3 to 12.8 and his high bar result from 13.0 to 14.0 on his way to a 79.25 cumulative all-around total.
This is his first ECAC honor of Tang’s young career.
Tang and his Navy teammates will be back in action at the All-Academy Championships in Houston, Texas this Saturday, Feb. 1. The three-team meet between No. 11 Air Force, No. 13 Army and No. 14 Navy is slated to begin at 2 p.m.
