Freshman Evan Eigner has just been named this week’s Eastern
Collegiate Athletic Conference Rookie of the Week, as voted on by the
coaches in the ECAC.
In a losing effort last Sunday at University of Illinois-Chicago,
Eigner nailed his routine on rings, posting a score of 14.250, tying
him with graduate student and team captain Taylor Brana for the Owl’s
highest score on the apparatus.
Eigner, a Philadelphia native, was a four time Junior Olympic
Qualifier before joining the men’s gymnastics team this year.
Eigner and the rest of the Owl’s will be looking to the home gym
of Pearson/Mcgonigle for their senior day in a tri-meet against Army
and Navy. Competition begins this Saturday at 2 p.m
