Cedar City, Utah – Cami Guyer became San Jose State University's first conference balance beam champion since 2003 and four Spartans earned All-WAC honors at the Western Athletic Conference (WAC) Women's Gymnastics Championships.
Guyer matched her career best of 9.800 and tied for first place with Caitlin Mann of Boise State and Cayla Buetler of Sacramento State to share top honors in the balance beam.
Guyer and Cassandra Harrison were named first team All-WAC for their beam and floor performances, respectively. Harrison was second in the floor exercise with a 9.900. Bekah Gher and Julia Greer were named second team All-WAC for their sixth-place performances in the all-around and floor exercise, respectively.
San Jose State finished sixth with a 194.700. Boise State won the WAC Championship with a 196.225. Denver finished second, earning a 196.125, Sacramento State placed third at 195.500, Utah State was fourth with a 195.100 and Southern Utah rounded out the top-five with a 194.925.
The night began for San Jose State with a strong start in the floor exercise. For the fourth time this season, Harrison earned a 9.900, leading the Spartans. Gher tied her career-high with a 9.825 and Greer anchored San Jose State's lineup with a 9.850. After the opening rotation, the Spartans were in first place with a 49.100.
San Jose State stayed in first place after two rotations at 97.925 with another strong performance on the vault. Amy Bellingham opened with a career-best 9.725. Gher and Jasmine Holmes each had a team-best 9.825, career-highs for both. The Spartans scored 48.825 and tied their third-highest team score in the vault at a conference championship.
After a bye, the Spartans continued to shine on bars, tying its third-best team score earned at a conference championship. Cami Guyer had the team’s best score, tying a career-high 9.800.
But Boise State’s third rotation, on floor, yielded a meet-high 49.400 and Sacramento State’s second 48.925 team score of the night, its third rotation on beam, put each team in first and second place, respectively, dropping San Jose State to third.
Despite Guyer's championship beam routine, falls and bobbles on the beam plagued San Jose State in its final rotation. Forced to count a fall, the Spartans' 48.125 score was their lowest of the four events.
Competing in the all-around, Gher was sixth with a 39.100 while Harrison was tenth at 38.450.
