Steinberg Honored as EAGL Gymnast of Week

MORGANTOWN, W.V. – UNH senior gymnast Chelsea Steinberg (Ridgewood, N.J.) has been named the EAGL Gymnast of the Week on the heels of her performance against the ninth-ranked University of Michigan at Lundholm Gymnasium on Feb. 5.

Steinberg matched a personal best by scoring a 9.875 on balance beam to finish third on that apparatus, tied for fifth on floor exercise by virtue of a season-high-tying 9.85 and her season-best all-around score of 39.175 was good for third overall.  

It is the second career EAGL Gymnast of the Week award for the senior co-captain, who was previously honored Feb. 16, 2010, and the second time a Wildcat has been feted this season. Sophomore Austyn Fobes (Howell, N.J.) won the award January 25.

The UNH gymnastics team plays host to the annual UNH Invitational on Saturday night, Feb. 12, at 7 p.m. in a quad meet against Michigan State University, Brown University and the University of Alaska Anchorage at Lundholm Gym. For tickets, CLICK HERE or call (603) 862-4000, x 5.
