Record-Setting Night On Vault For Victorious Women's Gymnastics

Provo, UtahSan Jose State continued to impress the judges as the team recorded its second-highest team score of the season and set a new team vault record in winning the BYU Quad Meet Friday night in Provo.

The Spartans established a new team vault score with a 49.100, breaking the old record of 49.025 set last season against Southern Utah. Veronica Porte also tied the San Jose State vault record with a 9.925, tying Shina Cardeno who performed that vault in 2006.

Porte was the big winner on the evening, winning three events and the all-around. Porte won the vault with her record-breaking 9.925, beam with a 9.800, floor with a 9.825 and the all-around with a career-best 39.275.

“I am really excited with how well I did in the meet,” said Porte. “I was just on tonight and was just trying to help my team any way I could. We accomplished two of our goals tonight which were to beat Boise and to go 24-for-24 on our routines.”

San Jose State scored a 194.850 Friday night to win the meet and continued its streak of 194.000 or better scores over the past four meets. The score is the seventh-highest in school history and the second-best this season.

The Spartans started the meet on the bars where Thomasina Wallace became just the third person in school history to record a 9.925 on bars. Alise Blackwell added a 9.825, while Jessica Khoshood and Porte each had 9.725. Tiffany Louie scored a 9.700, while Kate Merritt contributed a 9.650. As a team, San Jose State had its second-highest bars score of the year with a 48.900.

Rotating to beam, Porte led the team with her 9.800. Aubrey Lee and Blackwell each scored a 9.675, while Kelli Fournier, Merritt and Wallace each received a 9.400. The team had a 47.950 on beam and a 96.850 after two rotations.

The floor team scored a 48.900, led by Porte who won the event with a 9.825. Gabrielle Targosz, Shanice Howard and Wallace all received 9.775. Khoshnood scored a 9.750, while Katie Valleau added a 9.650.

On the record-setting vault team, Porte led the way with her school record tying 9.925. Blackwell recorded her first ever 9.900 at San Jose State. Wallace added a 9.850, while Lily Swann scored a 9.825. Merritt and Howard each scored a 9.600.

“This was another great meet for our team,” said San Jose State head coach Wayne Wright. “Every week we are getting better and doing what need to get higher scores. I am really pleased with the way we are working as team and making the ad justments needed to help us get these scores.”

San Jose State is now 10-1 on the season. The team next competes at the UC Davis Triangular meet next Friday night, February 27, against the Aggies and Stanford. The meet begins at 7 p.m.
