Seawolves make the grades

By Dave Goldman 10:18 AM August 20, 2014

Most gymnasts would cringe at a score of 4.0.

For three University of Alaska Seawolves, it’s perfection.

Sophomores Marie –Sophie Boggasch and Simone Penker, along with redshirt freshman Julia York, all posted a GPA of 4.0. With six other UAA members at 3.5 or higher, the team ranked 25th nationally with a cumulative score of 3.4187. The GPAs are calculated throughout the entire scholastic year.

The announcement was made by the National Association of Collegiate Gymnastics Coaches – Women. Boggasch, a native of Germany is a professional piloting major while Penker, an Austrian, majors in natural sciences. York is studying psychology.

The 2015 campaign begins December 13 with the Green and Gold intrasquad scrimmage. January 8 is the Seawolves’ first meet of the season: The team will face Winona State at the brand new Alaska Airlines Center.
