DURHAM, N.H.--- Amanda Hall (Bremerton, Wash.), a junior on the University of New Hampshire women's gymnastics team, was honored on Wednesday by the East Atlantic Gymnastics League conference as the Gymnast of the Week. Hall earned the award for her performance against Rhode Island and Yale in Sunday's tri-team meet. Hall finished first in each of the four events and received an all-around score of 39.150.
With the help of Hall's solid outing, the Wildcats were able to beat out Rhode Island (184.1) and Yale (185.9) with a score of 190.125. Hall earned individual scores of 9.825 on floor, 9.875 on vault, 9.850 on bars, and 9.6 on beam.
Hall currently holds six of the top 10 all-around scores in UNH history, including her first-place record score of 39.475. Throughout her career with the Wildcats, she has posted career high scores of 9.95 on vault, 9.875 on bars, 9.875 on beam, and 9.95 on floor. Outside of the gym, Hall excels as a student, earning a spot on the EAGL All-Academic team in 2003 and 2004. In 2004, Hall was also honored as a NACGC/W Scholastic All-American.
The award marks the second-consecutive week that a Wildcat gymnast has received EAGL honors. On Jan. 11, freshman Rebekah Porter (Valparaiso, Ind.) earned EAGL's first-ever Rookie of the Week award for her collegiate debut.
