Five members of the Arizona Gymnastics team have earned National Association of Collegiate Gymnastics Coaches for Women (NACGC/W) Scholastic All-America honors for the 2012-2013 academic year.
Recent graduates Aubree Cristello (Marketing) and Molly Quirk (Molecular and Cellular Biology) both made the list. Rising seniors Shana Sangston (Family Studies and Human Development) and Barbara Donaldson were also recognized. Current sophomore Jessie Sisler (physiology) rounded out the list for the Wildcats.
Cristello was one of Arizona's most successful gymnasts and was the only Arizona athlete to receive First Team All-Conference honors all four years of her career. In her final season, she earned two new career high scores - 9.950 on vault and 9.900 on beam. Quirk also had a successful career as a Wildcat. She had a career high in her final season with a 9.900 on floor.
Sangston has become one of Arizona's biggest contenders for the floor event. Last season she tied her career high on vault with a 9.800 and had a career high 9.850 on floor. Donaldson has continued to contribute in the vault line-up. She scored a career high 9.825.
Sisler also had a successful freshman season in the gym having earned multiple first place finishes on floor and was awarded Pac-12 Freshman/Newcomer of the Week for the week of Feb. 14-20. Sisler twice scored a season high 9.925 on floor.
