WILLIAMSBURG — The William & Mary men’s gymnastics team will be well represented at the NCAA Championships hosted by the University of Oklahoma on April 15-16, as a program-record 12 Tribe standouts qualified to compete as individuals.

The impressive total breaks the previous mark set twice (2018, 2019).

Malcolm Baytop (floor, pommel horse), Connor Bowman (high bar), Aidan Cuy (all-around), Christian Gulotta (floor, pommel horse), Will Harrington (floor, vault), Jonathan Irwin (vault), Alek Kuzmenchuk (rings, parallel bars, high bar), Sam Lee (floor, vault, parallel bars, high bar), Christian Marsh (all-around), Zachary Patrick (rings, vault, parallel bars), Sam Piper (pommel horse) and Ahmir Postell (rings) all earned spots at the national championship meet.

The championships will begin on Friday, April 15 with the national qualifier, which consists of two pre-qualifying sessions (1/7 p.m. CST). W&M’s session will be determined at a later date. The top three individual finishers in all-around and on each event during each session, who are not already qualified on a team (top three teams qualify) or as an all-around competitor, will advance to Saturday’s finals at 6 p.m. (CST). The top eight competitors in all-around and in each event during the finals will garner All-America honors.
