DURHAM, N.H. – Led by four-time honoree Kayla Gray (Buffalo, N.Y.), 11 members of the University of New Hampshire gymnastics team earned Scholastic All-America awards from the National Association of Collegiate Gymnastics Coaches/Women (NACGC/W) for the 2014-15 academic year.
 
The Wildcats boasted a cumulative team grade point average of 3.491, which ranked 19th in the country and second in the East Atlantic Gymnastics League (Towson-3.498). The 11 Scholastic All-Americans equaled the highest number of recipients among EAGL schools (George Washington).  
 
Gray, who earned a degree in Kinesiology: Exercise Science in May, posted the team's highest cumulative GPA (3.860), while then sophomore Olivia Bogaczyk (Derry, N.H./therapeutic recreation) registered a 3.950 GPA to earn the team's Katie Baldwin Academic Excellence Award for top grade point average for the academic year.
 
Student-athletes were recognized for attaining a year-long or cumulative GPA of 3.50 or above.
 
Joining Gray in the cumulative GPA category were sophomores and two-time honorees Kaylor Kelley (Loudon, Tenn./kinesiology: exercise science/3.840) and Jennifer King (Freehold, N.J./kinesiology: exercise science/3.760). Junior Cassy Izzo (Cranston, R.I./biomedical microbiology) earned her second Scholastic All-America honor with a 3.82 GPA for the school year.
 
First-time selections were senior Erika Rudiger (Slidell, La./Kinesiology: Sport Studies/3.840), sophomore Meghan Pflieger (Barneveld, N.Y./kinesiology: sport studies/3.540), sophomore Jess Gracia (Bahama, N.C./biology/3.700), freshmen Lia Breeden (York, Pa./undeclared/3.790), Casey Lauter (Northport, N.Y./kinesiology: exercise science/3.920) and Megan Middlemiss (Hudson, N.H./business/3.500).
 
The 2014-15 Wildcats reached the NCAA Regional Championships for the 32nd time in 34 years and successfully reached postseason competition for the 34th time in Goodspeed's 36 years as head coach. Goodspeed was named the NACGC/W Northeast Region Coach of the Year for the sixth time in her career; she was previously feted in 1991, 1994, 2001, 2003 and 2008. UNH notched a 195.860 Regional Qualifying Score and an 18-8 overall record, which included a perfect 7-0 at Lundholm Gym. New Hampshire's 195.700 at the EAGL Championship was good for a runner-up finish and just 0.150 points shy from giving the 'Cats a second straight league championship.
