WEST CHESTER, PENNSYLVANIA (Dec. 19, 2022) — The Gymnastics East Conference announced the results of the 2023 preseason poll on Monday, Dec. 19, 2022 in anticipation of the 2023 season beginning January 7th. Penn leads the preseason poll again this year with 60 points and five first place votes. Not far behind is Brown with 52 points and one first place vote, and Yale with 48 points and one first place vote. Cornell also received one first place vote.
