Monday, April 22, 2013

Mechanical Engineering senior Anton Gryshayev earned All-America honors on Sunday at the NCAA Event Finals at Penn State's Rec Hall in University Park, Pa., as the University of Iowa men's gymnastics team concluded its season.

Iowa had three gymnasts qualify for the NCAA Event Finals. Gryshayev, senior Javier Balboa, and sophomore William Albert competed on the still rings. Gryshayev led the Hawkeyes with his score of 14.925 to place seventh on the event, while Balboa finished one spot behind with a 14.875. Albert rounded out the top-10, scoring 13.125.

The top eight gymnasts on each event received All-America honors.

Gryshayev earned the Hawkeyes' first All-America honors on rings since Chris Camiscioli in 1998.

Iowa finishes the 2013 season with three All-America honors -- marking the first time since 2005 the program has garnered three or more in a single season.
