Posner Named NCGA Men's Gymnastics Eastern Regional Coach of the Year for Second Straight Season; Six SC Athletes Compete at NCAA's
Minneapolis, Minn. -- April 18, 2009
-- A total of six student-athletes represented Springfield College at the NCAA Division I Men's Gymnastics Championships at the University of Minnesota over the past weekend. None advanced to the individual finals, thus a great Pride season came to a close. Head Coach Steve Posner
, however, was honored for the second straight year by being named the National Collegiate Gymnastics Association Eastern Regional Coach of the Year.
Freshman Ty Evans (San Jose, Calif.) and sophomore Josh Fox (Ellicott City, Md.) both competed in the All-Around as individuals for the Pride. Others who competed for Springfield included senior Matt Bolognese (Stony Brook, N.Y.) in the still rings, junior Keith Stumpf (Williamsville, N.Y.) in the vault, senior Andrew Kelly (Marstons Mills, N.Y.) in the parallel bars, and sophomore Matt Freundlich (Westfield, N.J.) in the horizontal bar.
