Wallace Sweeps Individual Titles As Spartans Win

San Jose-Thomasina Wallace continued her winning ways this season, sweeping all four events and the all-around Friday as the San Jose State women's gymnastics team defeated Sacramento State, 193.475-190.000 inside Spartan Gym.

Wallace won the vault for the second consecutive meet with a 9.900, the bars for the third time with a 9.825, beam for the second straight competition at 9.675, floor for the second straight meet at 9.850 and the all-around for the second time at 39.250. 

The Spartans started the meet strong on the vault with a season-best 48.825.  Wallace won the event with a 9.900, just the fifth 9.900 or better on vault in school history.  Lily Swann finished second with a 9.850, followed by Katie Merritt's 9.725, Shanice Howard at 9.700, Aubrey Lee at 9.650 and Katie Valleau with a 9.375.

San Jose State then rotated to bars and scored a 48.400.  Wallace posted her second victory of the night with a 9.825.  Alyssa Telles-Nolan was third with a 9.700.  Merritt was next with a 9.650, Howard at 9.600 and Cassandra Harrison at 9.525. 

Unfortunately, in the third rotation, the Spartans had to count a fall on beam.  Wallace and Julia Greer led the team as each scored a 9.675.  Holly Partridge scored a 9.525, while Merritt had a 9.350.  Swann recorded a 9.175, while Lee rounded out the scoring with an 8.825.

The Spartans finished with a 48.800 on floor, led by Wallace and Valleau who each had a 9.850.  Greer finished third with a 9.750, followed by Lee at 9.725, Casey McCord at 9.625 and Swann at 9.575.

San Jose State stays in the South Bay next weekend with a meet at Stanford next Saturday, February 5, at 4 p.m., inside Burnham Pavilion.  The Spartans return home on Friday, February 11.
