While Rivera will be instrumental in all aspects of the program, he will work primarily with bars and vault while also serving as the recruiting coordinator. “I’m very excited to have Tim here,” Lewis said at the time of Rivera’s hiring. “With his wealth of experience and technical expertise, I believe he’s going to have a positive and immediate impact on the program.”

During Mary Lewis’ 17-year tenure as the head women’s gymnastics coach at William and Mary, the Tribe program has distinguished itself with competitive success in the gym and academic excellence in the classroom. Evidence of the success can be found in the program’s four Eastern Collegiate Athletic Conference Championships and the numerous national scholar-athlete citations earned by Tribe gymnasts under Lewis’ guidance. A two-time ECAC Coach of the Year, Lewis’ four conference championships included three consecutive titles from 2001-03. In addition to the collective success experienced by the team, a number of Tribe gymnasts have also garnered individual accolades under Lewis’ tutelage. Since taking over the program in 1995, Lewis has coached 12 different gymnasts to 17 total NCAA Regional appearances. Additionally, Lewis’ gymnasts have claimed 16 individual ECAC titles.

TRIBE GYMNASTICS | STAFF | 2011 TRIBE | HISTORY | W&M | TRIBE ATHLETICS | ACADEMICS | SPORTS MEDICINE | STRENGTH AND CONDITIONING | WILLIAMSBURG

With 10 gymnasts returning from last season’s team that earned a second-place finish at the Eastern Collegiate Athletic Conference (ECAC) championship, the 2010 edition of the Tribe is poised for even greater success during the upcoming campaign. Led by a five-member senior class that has accumulated a wealth of experience during its time at the College, this year’s squad also boasts a pair of standouts who have qualified as individuals for NCAA regionals during their careers. Bolstering this year’s roster will also be a talented five-member freshman class that will push the returnees for spots in the lineup and add valuable depth. “I’m really excited about the 2010 season,” head coach Mary Lewis said. “We return a tremendous amount of experience with our senior class and have added a lot of depth that will make a huge difference for us this year.”

One of the Tribe’s most talented and accomplished performers, Kristin Milardo is the lone junior on the team’s roster this season. After placing 12th in allaround at the NCAA Southeast Regional and being selected as the 2009 ECAC Rookie of the Year as a freshman, she was once again one of W&M’s top all-arounders a season ago. In addition to earning first-team USAG All-America honors in all-around last year, she also garnered multiple all-conference accolades in 2010. As she continues to hone her skills and improve her consistency, she will likely be a strong candidate to qualify to NCAA regionals once again.

FRESHMEN FRESHMAN CLASS

After losing three seniors to graduation, this year’s team will benefit from the influx of a talented five-member freshman class, which includes Lacy Cummings, Katie Durst, Larsen Lasek, Allison Marko and Jess Pritchard. All five freshmen could vie for a spot in the beam and floor lineups, while multiple members of the group could also earn a position in the bars lineup.

JUNIOR CLASS

SENIORS SOPHOMORES

After a slew of injuries made it impossible for the entire freshman class to compete a year ago, the group returns as sophomores looking to make an impact this season. The healthiest among the returning group is Jenny Ware, an all-arounder who will train primarily on vault and floor. Molly Walsh also appears ready to contribute this season after recovering from knee surgery a year ago, while Lindsey Nichol and Morgan Stephens both hope to be back in the gym during the upcoming campaign.

In addition to the coaching staff, this year’s team will be led by the five-member senior class that will comprise the leadership council. Rather than selecting team captains, this season will mark the first time under Lewis’ watch that the program has utilized such an approach. “All of our seniors are expected to lead by example both in and out of the gym,” Lewis said. “We expect them to help set a very positive tone and demonstrate a good work ethic for the entire team. With all five seniors working together on a united front, it will greatly enhance our ability to achieve the goals we have set for this year, which includes winning the ECAC and USAG Collegiate championships.”

The College, which became a state university in 1906, has been designated a “Public Ivy,” and for nine straight years has been ranked by U.S. News & World Report as the sixthbest public university in the country – and the nation’s top small public university.

“William & Mary can make a good case for being the most selective public college in America. Its size . . . is ideal, the envy of a good many prestigious private colleges. Its setting and its own lush campus . . . provide the stuff calendars are made of. Its academic program . . . is no nonsense, followed by impressive placement in graduate schools and jobs.” Richard Moll, author of The Public Ivys: A Guide to America’s Best Public Undergraduate Colleges and Universities

The College of William and Mary is a public university located in Williamsburg, Va. Founded in 1693 by Royal Charter issued by King William III and Queen Mary II of England, William and Mary is the second oldest college in the country after Harvard. William and Mary has a long history of liberal arts education and a growing research and science curriculum that demonstrates a

Also referred to as “the alma mater of a nation,” the College has educated four U.S. Presidents – George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, James Monroe and John Tyler, which is the third most of any college in the country. William and Mary also claims several firsts, including the 1776 creation of Phi Beta Kappa – the country’s first academic honor society – the first honor code of conduct

for college students, and the first collegiate law school, established in 1779. William and Mary is also home to the Sir Christopher Wren Building – the country’s oldest academic building still in use – and the President’s House, the oldest home of a university president still in use.

Sandra Day O’Connor, who retired as Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court, was named twenty-third Chancellor of the College by the College of William and Mary Board of Visitors. Justice O’Connor’s appointment became effective at her April 2006 investiture; she succeeded Dr. Henry A. Kissinger, former United States Secretary of State, who was appointed in 2000. The post of Chancellor has been an important one since the College was chartered in 1693 by King William III and Queen Mary II of Great Britain. Until 1776, the Chancellor was an English subject – usually the Archbishop of Canterbury or the Bishop of London – who served as the College’s advocate to the crown, while a colonial president oversaw the day-to-day activities of the Williamsburg campus. Following the Revolutionary War, George Washington was appointed as the first American chancellor; later President John Tyler held the post. The first woman to serve on the United States Supreme Court, Justice O’Connor was born in El Paso, Texas, on March 26, 1930. She earned a B. A. in economics (magna cum laude) from Stanford University, and went on to receive an LL. B. from Stanford Law School, where she graduated third in her class. Her classmate, the late Chief Justice William H. Rehnquist, graduated first in the class.

Under the steady guidance and watchful eye of Terry Driscoll, the William and Mary Athletics Department has solidified its standing as one of the nation’s preeminent broad-based programs. As Driscoll enters his 15th year as athletics director, he has overseen an unprecedented era of improvement in terms of funding and facilities while also maintaining the College’s rich history of producing well-rounded student-athletes. Driscoll oversees a program that is committed to balancing academic demands with athletic success. One of the department’s stated goals each year is to finish among the top 100 in the annual Director’s Cup rankings, which has happened in all but one of the years that Driscoll has been the director. In the last seven years, the Tribe’s program has combined for a total of 29 Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) titles. This past season, W&M claimed three CAA titles (Men’s and Women’s Cross Country and Women’s Track & Field). In 2002-03, W&M had a school-record 10 teams compete in the NCAA Tournament, with four teams winning conference titles and six that finished in the top 25 at the end of their respective seasons. Overall, no institution in the CAA can claim more alltime league championships than the 98 William and Mary has earned.

Established in 1948 to create support for William and Mary Athletics, the Tribe Club is made up of alumni and friends of the College’s athletics programs. Due to the fact that W&M receives no aid from the state for its sports programs, the Tribe Club is the sole provider of scholarships for William and Mary’s student-athletes. Additionally, money raised annually by the Tribe Club helps defray a portion of the operating expenses for program support.

William & Mary’s Griffin is a mythical creature with the body of a lion and the head of an eagle. The coat of arms of King William and Queen Mary was adorned with lions, and the lion’s body of our mascot evokes our historic royal founding and early history. The eagle’s head of the Griffin suggests the national symbol of the United States and represents the presidents, leaders, and productive citizens whom William & Mary has trained for centuries.

ACADEMIC ADVISING PHILOSOPHY Sound academic advice can make the crucial difference between a coherent and exciting education that satisfies personal and professional goals and one that is fragmented and frustrating. Academic advising is recognized at the College as important to the development of its students, a natural extension of teaching and an important professional obligation on the part of its faculty.

The Council is composed of two representatives from each varsity team and the cheerleading team. Selected athletic administrators are non-voting members of the Council.

Among the dozens of activities, Tribe teams read at local schools, volunteered at youth camps, doing community-based service projects and collected food, clothing and money for non-profit organizations.
