Feb. 22, 2013


The Navy gymnastics team will travel to West Point, N.Y., to meet Army in the annual Star Meet at 1 p.m. on Saturday. The Mids have claimed the last four Stars, including a 327.1-319 win last season in Annapolis.

The Series

Navy has won the last four meetings in the series dating back to 2008. There was no Star Meet in 2010 as a snowstorm forced a cancellation of the event in Annapolis. Army leads the all-time series, 42-33-2. In all varsity sports competitions this season, Navy is 9-8-1 against Army. In Star Games, the Mids are 8-6-1 vs. the Black Knights.

Meeting Again

Saturday’s meet marks the third consecutive competition between Army and Navy. The teams first met at the West Point Open on Feb. 1 where Army posted a team score of 416.1 to take second place and Navy a 398.15 to take fifth. Last weekend at the All-Academy Championships, Army edged Navy, 410.6-407.3, for second place.

A Closer Look

Army ranks 14th in the nation in three-score average at 411.6. The Mids are right behind at No. 15 with a three-score average of 401.517. Navy’s high score this season is 407.3, which it posted last weekend. Army’s 416.1 at the West Point Open was its season-high score.

Chris Junghans was the Mids’ top-individual performer as he claimed the all-around title with a score of 81.65.
