The NCGA Dismount: Week 10

This week’s NCGA action featured only one competition, but this one solidified the entire roster for nationals. It was a fierce competition in the east, each team needing to capitalize and go routine for routine. Brockport stormed into first with a season high, Springfield followed close behind, notching its own season high for the year. NCGA nationals host, Ithaca College, punched its own ticket, sliding into third place with its second-highest score of the year. Rhode Island took home Coach of the Year in addition to sending individuals to nationals alongside Ursinus, and Cortland finished the season on a high note with a new season high on vault. 

Full Circle

Lexi Castellaneta, Brockport

Way back in the spring of 2019, Lexi Castellaneta was awarded the NCGA-East Rookie of the Year. Well, way leads on to way and the world did some spinning. And this year, the senior was awarded NCGA-East Gymnast of the Year. A perfect set. 

Springfield Showdown

For the first time since 2000, Springfield took second in a regional qualifier. Not satisfied there, this is only the third time since the NCGA-East regionals started in 2015 that a college has had three champions, and the first time for a school other than Brockport. 

NCGA-East Coach of the Year

Monica Mesalles Nassi

While this may not have been the way the Anchorwomen wanted to see their season end, it was one heck of a ride. The team smashed an incredible amount of records, blazing a trail for following teams to expand while dreaming of their own place in the history books. Head coach Monica Mesalles Nassi has magic in that gym that won’t soon fade.
