Women's Gymnastics Finishes Second at Master's Classic

Lincoln, Neb.The San Jose State women’s gymnastics team scored a 192.825 to finish second to host Nebraska’s 195.250 Sunday afternoon at the Master’s Classic.  Spartan Renae Moneymaker scored a 38.450 to finish second in the all-around.

Moneymaker was one of four Spartans to place in the top-five on the day.  She scored a 9.675 on vault, 9.650 on bars, 9.625 on floor and a 9.500 on beam.  Raylyn Cardeno scored a 9.800 on vault to tie for third place. Kelsey Spellacy, in just her second meet back from a preseason injury, scored a 9.750 on bars to tie for fifth place.  Adriane Mertens was the team’s top performer on beam with a 9.800 to tie for third place.

“This was a really fun meet for us,” said Moneymaker.  “The meet went really fast.  I was really happy with my vault today because I stuck it.  We came here thinking we had to be confident in ourselves to have a good meet and not concentrate on a dual meet weekend.”

The Spartans started the meet on beam with a 48.000.  Amberly Klein scored a 9.700, while Michelle Minotti scored a 9.625 to go with Mertens’ 9.800. The team then rotated to the floor and scored a 47.925, led by Veronica Porte’s 9.700.  Alise Blackwell had a 9.650, while Moneymaker scored a 9.625.

San Jose State then rotated to its strongest event this season, the vault. The team scored a 48.525, led by Raylyn Cardeno’s 9.800.  Shina Cardeno, the school’s new vault record holder, followed up her record performance with a 9.750.  Minotti scored a 9.725, while Moneymaker added a 9.675.

The team ended the meet on the bars.  Tracie Kavlec set the tone for the team with a 9.575 to start.  Moneymaker scored a 9.650, Minotti a 9.675, Porte a 9.725, and ended with Spellacy’s 9.750. The team scored a 48.375 on bars to end the meet with a 192.825.

In the all-around, Minotti finished third with a 38.425, while Porte was fourth at 38.375.

“This was a good experience for our team, especially traveling two time zones to compete,” said San Jose State head coach Wayne Wright.  “I am pleased with our overall performance, especially competing against teams for the first time.  I am really pleased for Kelsey today.  She did a great job after being back in the lineups for only her second meet of the season.”

San Jose State will compete next Sunday, March 5, at UCLA with Stanford.
