No. 5 Stanford Edges Out Women's Gym

Feb. 18, 2001

BERKELEY - Although fifth ranked Stanford topped Cal by the score of 196.950-196.025, the Bears made the season finale in Haas Pavilion a record-breaking effort.

Not only did Cal score a 196.075, their first 196 in school history, but many Cal gymnasts scored their personal highs Sunday afternoon. Individual bests included, Lisa Arnold's 9.925 on the bar, Carrie Kreifels' 9.900 on beam and Stephanie Kim's 9.925 also on the beam.

Coach Trina Tinti looked proudly on the all-around effort of her team. 'Our team scored many personal bests,' said the fourth year coach.

'I am especially proud that we accomplished two of our team goals, scoring a 196 team score and hitting 24 to 24. We can be more competitive with Stanford once we get our entire team on the competition floor.'

In the vault competition Arnold took first place with her career high of 9.925. Stanford's Robin Phelps and Jen Exaltation took second and third with a 9.875 and 9.85, respectively.

There was a three-way tie on the bar as sophomore co-captain Carrie Kreifels matched Stanford freshmen Caroline Fluhrer and Lindsay Wing with a 9.900.

The Cardinal finished one-two on the beam as Jen Exaltacion and Lindsay Wing tied for first place with a score of 9.950. Freshman standout Stephanie Kim returned to action after sitting out last week's competition with a back injury recording a career high of 9.925 to place as the third-best performer on the event.

Lastly on the floor exercise, Stanford's Lisa Leveille (9.975) and Lindsay Wing (9.950) took first and second for Stanford while Cal's lone Senior, Pari Olver, took third place with a 9.925.

In the all-around competition, Wing took first tallying a 39.400, Fluhrer took second with a 39.325 and Olver took third with a 39.300.

Cal heads to the state of Arizona next week to take on ASU with Boise and UC Santa Barbara, Friday, Feb. 23 at 7:30 p.m.
