Men’s gymnastics to host senior day

Men’s gymnastics will host its senior day today in the main gym of McGonigle Hall, in a tri-meet against Army and Navy. Competition is scheduled to begin at 2 p.m.

Following a disappointing spring trip in which the Owls went 0-3, Temple will look to end their three game losing skid tomorrow.

“Since we haven’t performed well recently,” men’s coach Fred Turoff said. “This meet could be close between Army and us, but Navy is weaker so far. Army has improved greatly from last year and currently is ranked just ahead of us in 13th position.”

He added, “We have to get back on track if we are to have a chance of repeating as conference champs.”

Senior Alex Tighe commented on his last home meet ever wearing the cherry and white.

“It hasn’t really hit me yet,” Tighe said. “My time at Temple is almost done; it will be the last time I compete at Mcgonigle Hall with my team. These are my brothers and my friends, and it will be pretty special to compete at home with them one last time.”
