After a successful start to the 2015 season this past Sunday, the San José State women's gymnastics team opens the home portion of the 2015 schedule this Friday night against #10 Stanford. The meet begins at 7 p.m., inside The Event Center.
Friday night's meet is also Club Night! Any club gymnast wearing a club jacket receives $1 admission. Also, the first 50 people in attendance will receive a Spartan helmet you can wear throughout the meet. Watch for flying t-shirts during the meet as you never know when your favorite Spartan gymnast will toss shirts. After the meet, kids will have the chance to dance on the floor with the gymnasts.
The Spartans are coming off a good performance at the NorCal Classic where the team opened 2015 with a 194.050 to finish third behind California and UC Davis. Stanford tied for fourth with Sacramento State with a 193.450. The Spartan team score was the second-highest opening-meet score in the past 10 years (194.300 in 2012).
The Spartan vault team scored a 48.775, the 10th-highest score in school history and the 25th time a team has scored a 48.775 or higher on the vault.
Cami Guyer led the Spartans as she finished third in the all-around at 38.925, and led the team on the floor with a 9.775 and the bars, along with Rachel Heinl, at 9.750. Maddie Herr led the vault team with a 9.800, while Marissa Unpingco had a team-high 9.775 on beam.
