FAIRFAX, Va. - Sophomore Jesse Glenn earned medalist honors on high bar, freshmen Joe Pritts was runner-up in floor exercise and Leo Genders placed third in two events as the Army gymnastics team finished second to host William & Mary in a triangular Sunday afternoon at Kaplan Arena.

The No. 13-ranked Tribe posted the top score of 427.2 followed by No. 11 Army (406.9) and No. 18 Temple (401.45) in an Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) meet.

The Tribe dominated the meet claiming five of the six individual winners with Army interrupting that run with Glenn besting the field on high bar with a 15.2, which is just shy of his career mark of 15.3. Genders tied for third-place honors with a 14.6 as Army turned in the top team score of 72.4 in that event.

Glenn was part of Army's scoring contingent in three of the events turning in a 14.1 on still rings and 14.15 on pommel horse.

Pritts posted a 14.4 in finishing runner-up to William & Mary's Michael Deitz (14.6) in floor exercise with Genders tying for third place scoring a 14.3, which is just shy of his career mark. Pritts and senior Kip Webber shared fifth place on vault with 14.3s.

Freshman Sam Kusnitz placed third on parallel bars (14.0), junior Connor Venrick was fourth on pommel horse (14.2) and junior Jeremy Cahill was fifth on high bar (14.5) in rounding out Army's top performers in each event.

"We went into the meeting resting some of our guys," explained head coach Doug Van Everen, "as we are gearing our efforts toward the conference championships in two weeks. We will be 100 percent and ready to challenge for the title and automatic bid to the NCAA Championships."

The Black Knight, closing out their season 4-4, return to action next weekend when they compete at the USA Gymnastics Championships hosted by Navy.
