Stanford, Calif.The San Jose State women’s gymnastics team finished third Sunday afternoon at Stanford with a 190.575.   Freshman Renae Moneymaker finished fourth in the all-around with a 38.050.

“Today was really fun and high energy,” said Moneymaker.  “Beam was one of my best events today because I have had problems with it during the week.  It was good to be able to help my team in scoring on all four events.  I felt ready to compete in the all-around.”


Leah Bigelow was the Spartans’ top finisher on the day as she tied for third on the beam with a 9.750, while Amberly Klein tied for sixth on beam with a 9.675.  Raylyn Cardeno was sixth on the vault with a 9.700.  Michelle Minotti and Shina Cardeno tied for sixth on the vault with a 9.675.  Veronica Porte was the team’s top finisher on the floor with a 9.625.  Minotti was fifth in the all-around with a 37.950, while Porte was sixth with a 37.600.



“I was happy with our performance today” said San Jose State head coach Wayne Wright.  “We came up a little short on floor but otherwise were ok.  We improved our score over last week.  I was very pleased with Renae’s performance considering it was her first time competing in the all-around.”


Stanford won the meet with a 194.350, while Sacramento State finished second with a 191.525.  UC Davis finished fourth with a 186.875.  Cardinal Tabitha Yim was first in the all-around with a 39.600.
