No. 25 Women's Gymnastics Takes Second Place at Quad Meet
Feb. 24, 2001
TEMPE, Ariz. - Highlighted by Arizona State junior Laura Moon's first career perfect 10.0 score, the Sun Devil's 13th-ranked women's gymnastics team performed to a school-record-tying 197.125 to win the UNO's Classic in Wells Fargo Arena, Friday night.Picking up a trio of wins, ASU improved its record to 6-4, defeating No. 25 California (195.875, 7-8), Boise State (193.225, 6-5) and UC Santa Barbara (185.075, 2-13). The Sun Devils' third home win this season increased ASU's home winning streak to 24 meets against 38 opponents, dating back to 1996.
Thrilling the 1,508 in attendance, Moon's perfect mark came as she closed out the second rotation on the uneven bars. The Sun Devils' first 10.0 score in two seasons, and 14th all-time, Moon's perfect routine put the finishing touch on the Sun Devils' school-record bars total of 49.375.
Cal sophomore co-captain Carrie Kreifels set a season and career high on the vault scoring a 9.850 to tie for the top spot with the Devil's Maggie Germaine. Senior captain Pari Olver finished behind in third place (9.825).
Red-shirt freshman Katreece Stone, who leads the nation on the beam, tied a career high of 9.900 on that event to tie for second place. Other bright spots for the Bears Friday night included a third place finish in the all-around by Olver tallying a 39.025.
ASU swept all four events with the highlight of the night coming on the floor where three Sun Devils tied for first place. Cal placed second in every event. Although coming in second place for the team score, the Bears mark of 195.875 was well above their season average of 194.129, and just .200 shy of Cal's all-time record set last Sunday versus Stanford.
The Bears stay on the road this weekend facing UC Davis Sunday afternoon at 1 p.m.
