WILLIAMSBURG, Va. (March 22, 2012) - After posting a number of outstanding performances last week, William and Mary standouts Daniel Potemski and J.J. Jindra recently garnered weekly awards from the Eastern Collegiate Athletic Conference (ECAC). Potemski was selected as the ECAC Gymnast of the Week, while Jindra was chosen as the ECAC Rookie of the Week.

Potemski earned the league's top weekly honor for the second time this season after winning a pair of all-around titles. After totaling an 82.5 in the win against Army on Thursday, he posted an 83.5 two days later in a tri-meet with Army and Temple. The Round Rock, Texas native also won on vault (14.7) and parallel bars (14.1) on Saturday, while he equaled a career high on pommel horse with a 14.5 - a score that ranks fourth in W&M's record book. Potemski also tied for the floor title in the dual meet triumph against Army with a 13.9.

Jindra earned rookie of the week honors for the second time this season after winning on rings and parallel bars in the Army/Temple tri-meet. En route to claiming the titles, he posted career highs in both events with a 14.3 on rings and a 14.1 on parallel bars. The rings score ranks tied for fourth in W&M's record book. In addition to earning the pair of individual titles, the Fairfax, Va., native also registered career bests in all-around (82.6) and on vault (14.1). Highlighting Jindra's performances in the win against Army on Thursday was his 14.0 on rings, which tied for the meet's top mark.

The Tribe will return to action when it competes at the USAG Collegiate Championships hosted by Air Force on March 30-31.
