Women's Gymnastics At Southern Utah Friday

The Spartan women's gymnastics team looks to keep the momentum of last week's spectacular performances on Senior Night going this Friday night in a meet at Southern Utah.  The meet begins at 7 p.m. MST, and live stats and video will be available at www.suutbirds.com with links posted on the San Jose State web site.


San Jose State enters the meet ranked 34th in the country, while Southern Utah is 27th with a 194.208 average.  The Thunderbirds are the defending Western Athletic Conference champions and have won the past two meets over Utah State (194.000) and at Cal State Fullerton (193.000).  The team also won a huge home meet over UCLA in January with a 194.750 team score.


The Spartans are coming off one of their best meets in school history.  The team scored a 195.550 last Friday against Boise State, UC Davis and Seattle Pacific.  Thomasina Wallace tied the school record on beam with a 9.900 and scored a season-best 39.325 in the all-around.  She also won the bars with a 9.900 and earned WAC Gymnast of the Week honors for her performances.
