Beam Team's Record-Setting Performances Highlight Victory

Cedar City, Utah-After a rough start on the beam in four of the first five meets this season, the San Jose State beam team shattered the school record Friday night in a win at Southern Utah.  The Spartans scored the third-highest team score in school history with a 195.425 in the win.

The beam team broke the San Jose State record with a 49.275, besting the old record by .225 (49.050, March 2003) on the final rotation of the evening.  Aubrey Lee anchored the team with a career-best 9.900, tying four other Spartans including teammate Thomasina Wallace for the school record.  Wallace and Julia Greer each scored a 9.875 (a season-best for Greer), while Lily Swann received a season-high 9.825. Holly Partridge had her career-best with a 9.800, while Katie Merritt added a 9.450 to round out the scoring.

The Spartans just got better on every rotation as the night progressed. The team started on bars with a 49.375.  Wallace led the team with a 9.750, followed by Alyssa Telles-Nolan at 9.700, Swann and Merritt at 9.650, Cassandra Harrison at 9.625 and Shanice Howard at 9.600.  Southern Utah had a lead after the first rotation - 48.625-48.375.

Rotating to vault, San Jose State scored a 48.800, led once again by Wallace's 9.825 which gave her the vault title.  Merritt scored a season-high 9.800, while Harrison and Swann each recorded a 9.750.  Lee had a season-high 9.675, while Katie Valleau had a 9.650.  The Spartans took a 97.175-96.375 lead after two rotations as the Thunderbirds had to count a fall on bars.

San Jose State then moved to floor, the team's best event of the season.  Katie Valleau, who is ranked among the top-20 nationally on the event, tied for first with a 9.850. Wallace scored a 9.800, followed by Casey McCord, Greer and Swann at 9.775.  Lee rounded out the scoring with a 9.750, as San Jose State scored a 48.975 and took a 146.150-144.675 lead

The final rotation found San Jose State on the beam, what was considered the team's weakest event score-wise.  The team scored the record-breaking 49.275 and ensured the Spartans' win over the Thunderbirds who scored a 193.700.

Wallace won the all-around with a 39.250, her third 39.000+ score this season.  Swann placed third in the all-around with a 39.000.

San Jose State continues on the road next Friday night at Oregon State in a meet with the Beavers, Washington and UC Davis.

The Spartans also host the 2011 Western Athletic Conference Women's Gymnastics Championship on Saturday, March 19, at The Event Center, beginning at 6 p.m. Tickets are currently available at the Spartan Athletics Ticket Office at (408) 924-SJTX (7589).
