Walnut Creek, Ca - Not only has the eighth-ranked Stanford women's gymnastics team enjoyed success during the 2006 season, but six members of the team have been honored for their work in the classroom.
Every year, the Pacific-10 Conference honors student-athletes who have achieved a minimum 3.0 overall grade-point average and been either a starter or significant contributor. In 2006, six Stanford women's gymnasts met that classification and thus have been accorded Pacific-10 All-Academic status.
Elmore, a sophomore from Bloomington, In, holds a 3.58 gpa. Foley, a senior from Englewood, Co, will graduate in June, 2006, with a 3.29 gpa in Human Biology. Gentry, a sophomore from Plano, Tx, has a 3.42 gpa. Pintchouk, a sophomore from Mt. Laurel, NJ, has a 3.65 gpa. Sprando, a junior from Portland, Or., holds a 3.49 gpa in Human Biology. The team's highest gpa is held by Precourt, a sophomore from Pasadena, Tx, at 3.81.
This is the third straight year that Foley has been named All Pac-10, and the second time for Sprando.
Stanford and Oregon State led all Pac-10 schools with six academic selections each. California and Washington each had five All Pac-10 Academic selections.
Stanford hosts the NCAA West Regional on April 8 at Maples Pavilion. The six-team field includes fifth-ranked Alabama, #8 Stanford, #16 Oregon State, Boise State, Sacramento State and San Jose State.
