Engreitz Named All-Pac-12 On Floor
March 27, 2012
WALNUT CREEK, Calif. - The 2012 Pac-12 All-Conference Gymnastics teams have been announced and UW senior Ruby Engreitz was named second-team on the floor.
"Ruby worked very hard to improve her floor routine this year by adding a second double-back pass to the end of her routine," said head coach Joanne Bowers. "It is nice to see she has been rewarded for it with this honor. She is a great dancer and tumbler and is very deserving of this award."
The Kirkland, Wash., native is earning her second all-conference honor after being named to the bars team in 2011. This year on floor, she has been the anchor for much of the season and is the highest Husky in the national rankings on the event. She has an average of 9.871 and a high of 9.875 on the floor this season.
Engreitz has won nine individual titles this season, three on bars, four on floor and two in the all-around. Her biggest win on floor of the season was in UW's upset over then-ranked No. 1 UCLA in which she scored a 9.875, her season-best.
The All-Pac-12 team is determined by a combination of 50 percent regional qualifying score (entire season composite) and 50 percent Conference Championships score. The All-Conference first team consists of the top six all-around competitors, plus the top three competitors in each individual event who are not among the all-around honorees. The Pac-12 second team consists of the top two all-arounders who were not named to the first team (as all-arounders or in an event), after such the top two gymnasts from each event who were not yet named to the first team or the second team would be selected to the second team.
UW hosts one of the six 2012 NCAA Regionals on April 7 at 4 p.m.
