Lots of gymnasts are specialists, but only a few are skilled enough in all four events to compete in the all-around.

So to finish among the all-around leaders at the 2011 USAG Collegiate Nationals is a remarkable accomplishment.

Welcome to Amy Winczura‘s world.

The Texas Woman’s University sophomore from Eagle River earned her first All-America honor in the all-around after placing sixth at the national meet in Colorado Springs, Colo.

Winczura, of Arctic Gymnastics Center fame, scored a 38.45. Her beam score of 9.775 was a personal best and qualified her to the individual event finals, where she placed 10th and earned All-America honors.

The USAG Collegiate Nationals was comprised of NCAA D1 teams that do not award scholarships, like the Ivy League, and D2 schools.

Led by Winczura, Texas Woman’s University advanced to the team finals and placed second to the University of Bridgeport.

In just two college seasons the Alaska gymnast is already a four-time All-American on the mat and a two-time All-American in the classroom.
