On floor, aside from Fugett’s performance, junior Tomas Palma received his season-best score. On pommel horse, sophomore Spencer Schrandt placed third with a career-high 13.4. On rings, Gliozzi closely followed Watkins with a 13.9. On vault, many gymnasts contributed to the College’s efforts to post a squad season-best in the event. Sophomore Collin Lillie placed second with a career-high 14.4, the sixth best in school history, while junior Tim O’Neill made his season debut with a 14.1. In parallel bars, sophomore Ian Creelman and junior Nate Winneg performed the best, recording 12.5 and 12.3 respectively.
