Quinnipiac’s impressive acrobatics and tumbling team is worth watching

HAMDEN, Conn. (WTNH)–Up on the hill at Quinnipiac, the men’s and women’s ice hockey and basketball teams get all the headlines. But if you get the chance, you have to check out the Bobcats’ acrobatics and tumbling program. You want to talk about tough, and athletic? They’re tough to beat.

The Bobcats opened the 2016 season with a home match against the defending national champion, Baylor. A big crowd was on hand to watch Quinnipiac win two of its six events against the Bears, and despite the loss, head coach Mary Ann Powers was very happy with the direction of her program.

“These kids are really focused, and really grounded. They want to do well in academics, they want to do well in their sport, and they’re just a pleasure to coach,” Powers said.

“Our chemistry is just what keeps us fueled and keeps us striving to win, and to constantly improve,” said senior Demi Germanakos.

“This is probably the best chemistry team that I’ve ever been on,” said senior Tyler Johnson. “It really is making a difference, and today it showed on the mat.”
