Eastern Michigan was awesome

… the Eastern Michigan University women’s gymnastics team turned in an incredible meet in their first ever NCAA Regional, April 2. The Green and White finished with a team score of 196.250, and were just .0275 away from first-place Stanford and Auburn.

“We had three fantastic teams in front of us that we were going to have to beat,” explained Head Coach Jay Santos. … our kids stood toe-to-toe with those three strong teams. We were leading the meet after a few rotations, and we hung with three of the best teams in the country. I’m super proud of what we did today …”

At the conclusion of the meet, Jay Santos was named Regional Coach of the Year, while Jess Santos was named Regional Assistant Coach of the Year. …
