Women's Gymnastics Scores a 193.225 at UCLA

Los Angeles--The San Jose State Women’s Gymnastics remained consistent with its team score as the team scored a 193.225 Sunday afternoon in a tri-meet at UCLA with Stanford.  The Cardinal won the meet with a 195.950 followed by UCLA with a 195.150 in front of a crowd of 5,027.

 

The team score of 193.225 is the Spartans’ third highest team score of the season.  For the first time this season, the team scored a 48.000 or better in all four rotations.  San Jose State had a 48.575 on vault, a 48.100 on bars, 48.275 on beam and a 48.275 on floor.

 

“We went to UCLA to compete against ourselves and to better our score,” said San Jose State head coach Wayne Wright.  “I was really pleased with what we did.  We are learning to be consistent at home and on the road.  We hit 23 of 24 routines, and there is still room to get better.”

 

The Spartans started the meet on beam.  Leah Bigelow led the team with a 9.725, followed by Amberly Klein and Adriane Mertens who each posted a 9.700.  Michelle Minotti had a 9.625, while Veronica Porte scored a 9.525.  Renae Moneymaker had a fall on beam and scored a 9.150.

 

The team then moved to floor where the team had scored a 48.325 or better in four of the five past meets.  Minotti led the team with a 9.725, while Moneymaker and Porte each scored a 9.675.  Alise Blackwell and Amberly Klein each scored a 9.600, while Raylyn Cardeno posted a 9.550.

 

San Jose State then rotated to its strongest event of the season, vault.  Sisters Raylyn and Shina Cardeno led team on the vault.  Raylyn scored a 9.775, while Shina had a 9.725.  Alley Zezoney and Moneymaker each received a 9.700, while Minotti scored a 9.675.  Porte scored a 9.600 to round out the Spartan scoring.

 

The team finished the meet on the bars and marked only the third time this season that San Jose State has posted a 48.000 or better on this apparatus.  Moneymaker led the team as she tied her season best with a 9.750.  Minotti scored a 9.675, while Kelsey Spellacy and Alise Blackwell each scored a 9.575.  Porte scored a 9.525, while Tracie Kavalec received a 9.250.

 

Minotti was the team’s top all-around performer with a 38.700.  Porte scored a 38.325, while Moneymaker had a 38.275.

 

“It was a very exciting meet with the big crowd,” said Minotti.  “I was excited to compete on Sunday, and we remained consistent as team.  I was happy with everything I did and could control during the meet.  I felt I had one of my best bar routines of the season despite the score.”

 

San Jose State returns home this Friday, March 10, as the team hosts Sacramento State.  The meet begins at 7 p.m., at Spartan Gym, and this year’s senior class will be honored prior to the meet.
