Coaches Select Gymnast Ashley Ellsberry To All-America Team
April 25, 2003
Ashley Ellsberry, a senior from Cincinnati, Ohio, was selected as a second-team All-American on beam Friday by the National Association of Collegiate Gymnastics Coaches. Ellsberry posted a 9.875 on beam Thursday at the 2003 NCAA Gymnastics Championships in Lincoln, Nebraska, securing her spot on the all-America team.
Ellsberry capped a brilliant senior campaign for 23rd-year head coach John Spini, finishing fifth on beam at the national meet. She also placed 10th in the all-around competition Thursday, recording a 39.025.
Earlier in the season, Ellsberry posted a perfect 10.0 on beam versus top-ranked UCLA on February 16.
Ellsberry's sister, Wendy, won all-America honors for ASU in 1999.
