Women's Gymnastics Scores Season High 193.850

Sacramento, Calif.-Spartan gymnast Thomasina Wallace won two events and the all-around, and the San Jose State women's gymnastics team scored a season-best 193.850 Friday night in a meet at Sacramento State.  The Hornets won the meet with a 194.225.

Wallace won the bars with a 9.825 and the floor with a season-high 9.850.  She also scored her first 39.000-plus score in the all-around this season with a 39.075.Wallace added a 9.600 on vault and a 9.800 on beam.

San Jose State started the meet on bars and had to count a fall in the team's 47.725.  Wallace led the team with her 9.825, followed by Katie Merritt at 9.700, Jessica Khosnood at 9.650 and Tiffany Louie at 9.600.  Lily Swann had an 8.950, while Alyssa Telles-Nolan had an 8.050.

The team then rotated to vault to score a season-best 48.500.  Merritt won her first career vault title with a career-best 9.800.  Lily Swann finished second with a 9.775.  The Spartans scored its best vault team score of the year with a 48.500.  Aubrey Lee had a career-best 9.675, followed by Katie Valleau's career-best 9.625.  Shanice Howard vaulted for the first time this season and had a 9.625.

"This was my first time winning the vault and only the second time to win an event in three years (last week on the bars,)" said Merritt.  "After we had a fall on bars, we got together and knew we could do better.  This was very exciting because I did the best vault I have ever done in practice or a meet."

The third rotation found San Jose State on the floor scoring a 48.875.  Wallace led the team again with a season-high 9.825.  Gabrielle Targosz scored a 9.825, followed by Valleau's 9.800.  Khoshnood and Louie each scored a 9.700, while Swann had a 9.675.

After falling five times last week on beam, the Spartans rebounded this week with the 12th highest score in school history at 48.750.  Wallace led the team with a 9.800, followed by Shanice Howard with her second straight career-best of 9.775.  Targosz scored a career-best 9.750, followed by Lee's season-high 9.725 and Khoshnood's season-best 9.700.  Merritt rounded out the scoring with a 9.400.

"We had a solid meet tonight with a few hiccups," said Spartan head coach Wayne Wright.  "We did well on beam tonight, phenomenal on floor and great on vault.  On beam this week, we tried not to focus on the bad of last week's meet and not let it feed into our mind for this week."

Next week, San Jose State hosts Sacramento State and UC Davis at Spartan Gym on Friday, February 26.  The meet begins at 7 p.m., and spectators are encouraged to wear pink in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Night.
