(Tribe Athletics)

WILLIAMSBURG — The William & Mary men’s gymnastics team will be well represented at the NCAA Championships hosted by Ohio State on April 19-20 as 10 Tribe standouts qualified to compete as individuals.

The impressive total is just two shy of the school record (12) set three times (2018, 2019, 2022).

Aidan Cuy (all-around), Niko Greenly (rings), Will Harrington (floor), Garrett Kasiski (floor), Sam Lee (vault, parallel bars), Ricky Pizem (vault, high bar), Evan Sikra (high bar), Samuel Smith (pommel horse), Evan Wilkins (rings) and Gavin Zborowski (all-around) all earned spots at the national championship meet.

Malcolm Baytop (floor), Alek Kuzmenchuk (rings), Jared Noyman (parallel bars), Trenton Peazant (vault), Pizem (pommel horse) and Wilkins (floor) also earned spots as alternates.

The championships will begin on Friday, April 19 with the national qualifier, which consists of two pre-qualifying sessions (1/7 p.m.). 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. The top eight competitors in all-around and in each event during the finals will garner All-America honors.
