Pair of Gators gymnasts earn WCGA Regular-Season All-America honors

The Women’s Collegiate Gymnastics Association announced its regular-season All-America honors for the 2024 season, which included five total selections for the Florida gymnastics program split between a pair of student-athletes.

Florida freshman Anya Pilgrim and junior Leanne Wong were the two who earned the accolades. The former earned multiple All-American honors, landing on the second team in all-around and vault as one of just five freshmen among the selections.

The latter earned her first-team placement in the uneven bars event for the third consecutive season while claiming second-team honors for balance beam and all-around — making Wong an 18-time All-American with eight coming from the NCAA and 10 from the WCGA regular season.

Final national qualifying scores in the Road to Nationals rankings determine the WCGA All-Americans. The top eight gymnasts in each event and the all-around receive first-team honors and gymnasts Nos. 9-16 receive second-team honors with all ties included.

This is the 12th year the WCGA has recognized regular-season All-Americans.

Both Pilgrim (Barbados) and Wong (U.S.) competed in the 2023 FIG World Championships in Belgium last October, with Wong winning gold with Team USA.
