Wallace Wins All-Around, WAC Gymnast Of The Year

Logan, Utah-Saturday night belonged to San Jose State senior Thomasina Wallace at the 2012 Western Athletic Conference Women's Gymnastics Championships.  She picked up the hardware for the Spartans and helped lead the team to a 194.800.

Wallace is the first Spartan to be named the WAC Gymnast of the Year and the first San Jose State gymnast to win the WAC All-Around title.  She won the meet with a 39.400, her 11th all-around title of the season.  Her best score came on bars with a 9.900 to earn first team honors and also earned first team honors on floor with a 9.875.  Wallace was a second team honoree on vault with a 9.825.

"I could not have done everything this season without my teammates," said Wallace.  "I knew I needed to hit every event for my team.  They are amazing how they helped me and pushed me every day in the gym.  They were there cheering me through everything."

Katie Valleau was the other Spartan to win All-WAC honors Saturday night.  She scored a 9.875 on floor to tie for second and earn first team honors.

After beginning the meet with a bye, the Spartans opened the meet on bars with a 48.550.  Wallace led the team with her fourth 9.900 score of the season.  Casey McCord was next at 9.750, followed by Dannon Gregory at 9.700, Cassandra Harrison at 9.675, Kiley Field at 9.525 and Alyssa Telles-Nolan at 9.225.

Rotating to beam, San Jose State scored a 48.225, led by Wallace at 9.800. Julia Greer was next at 9.750, followed by Valleau at 9.600, Gregory at 9.550, Cami Guyer at 9.525 and Harrison at 8.900.

The Spartans scored its second-highest floor score of the season with a 49.200.  Wallace and Valleau each had a 9.875.  Alyssa Montalban tied her career high with a 9.825, and McCord also tied her career-best with a 9.800.  Greer had a 9.825, while Harrison added a 9.750.

San Jose State finished the meet tying a season-best on vault with a 48.825.  Wallace led with a 9.825, followed Montalban who tied who season-best with a 9.775 and Greer with a career-high 9.775.   Harrison had a 9.750, McCord a 9.700 and Valleau at 9.100.

"We did not perform as well I would have liked," said Spartan head coach Wayne Wright.  "I am disappointed that we did not do as well as we can, especially at this meet.  Every team is good at this meet, and we cannot give up tenths of points to any of them.

"I am very happy with our floor and vault teams.  They did a wonderful job tonight.  Our vault team knew they had to score at least a 48.800, and they went out and did it.

"I am really proud and happy for Thomi.  She has been awesome all year and led this team.  We are where we are because of her.  Her award was well deserved."

The Spartans now await word on their selection to the NCAA Regionals.  The announcement will be made Monday at noon on NCAA.com.
