Wallace Continues Record-Breaking Season

Seattle, Wash.-Every student-athlete dreams of having a senior year to remember.  Spartan gymnast Thomasina Wallace is doing at that San Jose State this year as she broke her all-around record for the third time this season and tied two other school records Friday night.

The Spartans scored a 194.425 in a meet at the University of Washington.  The Huskies won the meet with a 196.350, followed by Central Michigan at 195.300.

Wallace kept her record-breaking going Friday night as she broke the San Jose State all-around score for the third time this season and tied the beam and bars records.  She scored a 39.575 in the all-around, breaking her old record of 39.525 set at Utah State.

She started the night by tying the beam record in the first rotation with a 9.900 and won the event.  Wallace has scored a 9.900 on beam two other times as well as four other gymnasts.

Wallace won her second event of the evening with a 9.875 on floor, tying her season high on the event.  She then scored a 9.850 on vault to finish tied for second.

Rotating to the bars for her final event, Wallace has found the Alaska Airlines Arena very comfortable.  She started etching her name at the top of the record books her freshman year when she tied the bars and all-around records at the 2009 NCAA West Regional.  Friday night, Wallace again tied the bars record with a 9.950, a record she holds Shirla Choy.

"I just concentrate on going out and doing what I know how to do," said Wallace.  "I just think it is an honor just to be with the team and do great things with them.  I came to San Jose State because it felt most comfortable, and I had a good feeling about the team.  This has been more than I could have ever dreamed."

San Jose State scored a 194.425, led by the floor team's 48.950, followed by vault at 48.625, beam at 48.600 and bars at 48.250.

"This was a total team effort tonight," said Spartan head coach Wayne Wright.  "We were not 100 percent tonight as we were a bit shaky on our landings. But I am happy with everyone's effort and composure, especially after we started with a fall on beam."

San Jose State returns home next Friday, March 16, for the team's final home meet of the season.    The team will host Sacramento State and UC Davis at Spartan Gym beginning at 7 p.m.  After the meet, the five Spartans seniors will be honored - Aubrey Lee, Casey McCord, Katie Valleau, Wallace and Samantha Wong.
