Gymnasts Falls To Springfield

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. Juniors Jonathan Grey and Justin Sappington were medalist on pommel horse and high bar, respectively, in turning in Army’s top performances, but host Springfield captured the remaining four events en route to posting a 326.95-317.15 decision Sunday afternoon at SC’s Blake Arena.

Grey led an Army (0-4) sweep of the top three spots on pommel hore with his a 13.1 score in edging teammate Ty Smith by .01 for medalist honors. Sappington  was the leader on high bar with a 13.7, nipping Springfield’s all-around winner Ty Evans by .05.

Smith, who tied for runner-up honors in the all-around scoring with a 79.20, set a career mark on still rings recording a 13.6 in a second-place finish. He also finished third in floor exercise (13.6) and was fourth on vault (14.9).

 Sappington turned in a season-high 13.50 on still rings to finish third, and Tim Tieng closed out Army’s sweep on pommel horse with a 12.55 in placing third.

“We did well in the first three events and were leading by over a point,” said Army coach Doug Van Everen. “But we  were not as consistent over the final three events, but we had some excellent performances from Ty (Smith), Jonathan (Grey) and Justin (Sappington).”

Army closes out its regular-season home slate Saturday evening hosting Springfield, William & Mary along with Iowa at 6 p.m. at Gross Sports Center.
