Bridgeport Purple Knights
The Purple Knights are one of the most dominant teams in the ECAC Division II conference. They have won many USAG collegiate national titles, including six straight wins from 2009 - 2014. The team also made an appearance at the 2013 NCAA regionals and thus became only the second D-II program in history to qualify to the meet. In 2016, they won their eighth straight conference title, which was also No. 19 in the program’s history. The Purple Knights placed second for the second straight year at nationals and also qualified three gymnasts to NCAA regionals (Brianna Comport, Randi Cutolo and Christine Liautaud).
