Dodds Earns EAGL Honor

Feb. 19, 2013

COLLEGE PARK, Md. - University of Maryland junior gymnast Katy Dodds earned East Atlantic Gymnastics League (EAGL) Specialist of the Week honors for the fourth time this season, the league announced Tuesday.

Dodds continued to shine for the Terrapins in her three events Sunday. The junior's effort of 9.875 on vault was good enough for third in the meet. On bars, Dodds set a career high of 9.800, which also placed her third.

Dodds completed the meet on floor and once again flourished. The Gaithersburg, Md., native tied a career high with a 9.950 to help the Terrapins tie a season high on floor.

This is Dodds' fourth EAGL Specialist of the Week honor this season and second in as many weeks, and it marks the sixth consecutive week a Terrapin has won the award.

The 17th-ranked Terps play host to Bridgeport, George Washington and Pittsburgh on Friday, Feb. 22. The meet begins at 7 p.m. at Comcast Center.
