San José State is coming off its best meet of the season last Friday when the team scored a 195.300 at Sacramento State.  Maddie Herr led the team with a 39.325 in the all-around, tying for the eighth-best score in school history.  She also won the beam with a 9.850.

The Spartans return home next Sunday, March 6, for the final home meet of the 2016 season.  The team hosts UC Davis and Brown in a 2 p.m. meet at The Event Center.  The six seniors will be honored after the meet.

The meet is also designated as the alumni meet.  There is a reception before the meet for Spartan gymnastics alumni (women's and men's) at 11:30 a.m., and all alumni are asked to be at the gym by 1:45 p.m. so you can march out with the team during introductions.  An alumni photo will be taken after the national anthem and prior to the first rotation.  Alumni - please respond to the Evite sent to you.  If you have not received an invitation, please contact Julia Greer at julia.greer@sjsu.edu.
