No. 7 Women's Gymnastics Sets School Records In 197.425-195.640 Win Over No. 13 Minnesota
Feb. 2, 2001
STANFORD, Calif. - The No. 7-ranked Stanford women's gymnastics team continued to stake its claim as one of the nation's best, establishing school records for beam and overall scores en route to a 197.425-195.650 victory over No. 13 Minnesota at Burnham Pavilion.
The Cardinal broke a two-year old team overall record, bettering the 197.275 scored against Massachusetts on Mar. 12, 1999. Stanford posted four 9.9's or better on beam, led by freshmen Lise Lï¿½veillï¿½ (9.950) and Lindsay Wing (9.925), to score a program-best 49.500. The previous high score was 49.350, set at Boise State on Feb. 13, 2000.
Stanford recorded a 9.900 or better 10 times, while the team score was the second-best in the country in 2001. Only top-ranked UCLA, with a 197.500, has scored higher.
Stanford gymnasts won all four events, while Wing fashioned one of the best all-around meets in school history. She won the floor exercise with a 9.950 - the sixth-best mark in program history - finished second on beam with a 9.925 (tied for second in Stanford history), and won the all-around with a 39.625, the fourth-highest score ever by a Cardinal gymnast.
Fellow freshman Caroline Fluhrer also had a fantastic meet, putting her name in the Stanford record books while winning both bars (9.950, tied for fourth) and vault (9.925, tied for fifth). Lï¿½veillï¿½'s score on beam was the second highest in program annals.
Stanford also set a season-high with a 49.325 on floor, behind Wing's victory and second-place finishes by Lï¿½veillï¿½ and senior Jen Exaltacion. Five of the top six gymnasts on bars were Cardinal, as Fluhrer's victory was followed by Exalacion, junior Becky Meldrum, Lï¿½veillï¿½ and Wing.
Minnesota's MaryAnne Kelley finished in the top three in three of the four events and took second with an all-around score of 39.525.
Stanford returns to action on Friday, Feb. 9, when it hosts Arizona State in a Pac-10 dual meet at Burnham Pavilion. The meet will begin at 7:30 p.m.
