Feb. 12, 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 versus Army in the annual Star Meet this past Saturday.
Tang posted a season-high score in the all-around as he broke 80 points in the event for the first time in his young career with a final result of 83.6. The highlights for his meet versus Army, included top-five finishes in floor exercise (14.0), vault (14.3), parallel bars (14.05) and the high bar (14.0). As a team, the Mids defeated the Black Knights 422.3 to 420.1 to regain the Star.
This is his second ECAC award of Tang’s career as he garnered the same honor on Jan. 29 for his performance at the Navy Open.
As a program, this is the third time the Mids have been recognized in weekly awards by the ECAC, as senior captain Chris Junghans took Gymnast of the Week honors on Feb. 4.
Tang and his Navy teammates will be back in action versus William & Mary on Sunday, February 16. The meet that will be hosted at Macdonough Hall is slated to begin at 3 p.m.
