Freshman is GW's First-Ever All-American in Gymnastics

George Washington freshman Cami Drouin-Allaire was named a regular-season Second Team All-American on vault by the National Collegiate Gymnastics Coaches Association (NACGC/W) on Friday.

Drouin-Allaire is the first gymnast in program history to earn All-America honors.

The NACGC/W is awarding regular-season All-America honors for the third consecutive year. Gymnasts are chosen based on their final individual ranks in all four events and the all-around. The top eight gymnasts in each event, based on regional-qualifying score (RQS), are given first-team honors while those ranked ninth through 16th are given second-team honors.

Drouin-Allaire won the East Atlantic Gymnastics League (EAGL) vault title last Sunday at SECU Arena in Towson, Maryland, with a score of 9.95 to help lead the Colonials to their first-ever EAGL championship. It marked the third time this season she has achieved 9.95 on vault, which ties her for the best routine in program history.

A First-Team All-EAGL selection on vault, floor exercise and all-around, Drouin-Allaire carries a vault RQS of 9.935 into the NCAA Auburn Regional, which ranks her ninth overall in the nation.

She has been an integral part of GW's vault lineup which has set three program records this season and enters NCAA Regionals as the 10th-best vault lineup in the nation with an RQS of 49.315.

Drouin-Allaire averages 9.89 per vault routine and has eclipsed the 9.90 mark on six occasions this season.

GW will compete as the No. 6 seed at the NCAA Auburn Regional on April 4. The top two teams from each of the six regional sites will advance to the NCAA Women's Gymnastics Championship, April 17-19, in Forth Worth, Texas.
