Gher’s stellar night began with her first event, on vault. She earned her second-consecutive 9.850 to capture the meet title. Alyssa Montalban earned a 9.750, Cassandra Harrison added a 9.725 and Cami Guyer earned a 9.675. Julia Greer and Hannah Gilbert scored matching 9.650 marks to give San Jose State a 48.650 on the apparatus.
The Spartans had a solid showing on bars, which saw all six gymnasts earn a 9.650 or higher. Guyer’s 9.750 gave her the meet’s title, alongside Dani Judal from UC Davis. Harrison and Rachel Heinl scored 9.725 to tie for second. Gher and Marissa Unpingco added 9.700 scores, and Alyssa Kaschak matched her season-high 9.650 for a 48.600 bars score.
The Spartans’ three seniors led the way on beam. Gher earned a season-high 9.850, her second of the night, and the meet’s highest score.

On floor, Gher’s second season-high score of the night, a 9.750, lit a fire for the Spartans. But it was Alyssa Montalban’s energetic performance that got the crowd of 1,083 going. She matched her career-high 9.825, which Guyer promptly followed with a 9.800, matching her own career-high. Harrison added a 9.750.
Just as she has done every meet this season, Greer led the team with a 9.850 to finish second on floor and lead the Spartans to a 48.975 score.
Gher won her second all-around title of the season with a season-best 39.150. Competing in her first all-around of 2014, Harrison’s 38.950 gave her third place. Guyer collected a 38.875 in the all-around.
