Rasin, Coblenz Compete at NCAA Championship

For the second year in a row, MIT sent two representatives to the NCAA National Collegiate Men’s Gymnastics Championships hosted this past weekend by Stanford University. Boris Rasin ’09 made his second trip to the national qualifying round while Joshua S. Coblenz ’08 received his first nod.

Competing on the parallel bars, Coblenz captured 35th place with a score of 13.250. He posted the highest finish by a Division III competitor, ranking five spots ahead of his foe from Springfield College Andrew Kelly. After competing in the all-around last year, Rasin represented the Engineers on the pommel horse, placing 35th with a mark of 12.200.

Last season, Brad J. Sutton ’07 joined Rasin as a participant on the parallel bars while Damian M. Engen ’03 qualified in 2002 on the floor exercise and parallel bars.
