Winczura bags All-American honors (Gymnastics)

April 18, 2010

Eagle River freshman Amy Winczura of Texas Woman’s University earned All-American honors in two individual events at this week’s USA Gymnastics Collegiate National Championships in Denton, Texas.

Winczura, of Arctic Gymnastics fame, placed third on the vault (9.738) and the floor (9.775) to secure All-American recognition on both events.

The USAG Collegiate National Championships are for NCAA Division I, II and III schools that have fewer than 7 1/2 full scholarships.

In the team finals, Winczura represented her school on the floor and earned a season-best score of 9.8, a huge improvement on her previous season high of 9.65 in the regular season.

The Alaskan participated in all 12 regular-season meets and helped Texas Woman’s University gymnasts win the Midwest Independent Conference Championship title in March.
