Women's Gymnastics Scores Season-Best 193.250

Chicago, IllDespite temperatures below zero outside in Chicago, the San Jose State women’s gymnastics team scored a season-best 193.250 at a dual meet at the University of Illinois at Chicago.  The Flames won the meet with a 195.350.


Raylyn Cardeno led the Spartans as she won the vault with a season-best 9.850.  She tied her career-best with a 9.650 on the floor.


In the all-around, Alise Blackwell finished second with a 38.850.  She scored a 9.650 on vault, a 9.625 on bars, a 9.775 on beam and a 9.800 on floor.  Veronica Porte scored a 37.925 in the all-around including a career-best 9.800 on beam.


“I am really pleased with our performance tonight,” said San Jose State head coach Wayne Wright.  “We recorded our best season score (home or away) and continue to improve with each meet.  We had a tough night on floor, but I am really proud of this team.  Raylyn and Alise did a really nice job for our team at the meet.”


San Jose State returns to the Bay Area next Friday, February 9, for a quadrangular meet at Stanford.  Participants include #5 Stanford, #11 Oregon State and #16 Iowa State.  The meet begins at 7:30 p.m., at Maples Pavilion.
