Beavers Score Season-High 194.950 In Win Over Washington
Feb. 1, 2002
CORVALLIS, Ore. -
Four different Beaver gymnasts scored a 9.90 or better to help the Oregon State squad pick up its first win of the season with a 194.950-193.850 victory over Washington on Friday.
For the first time this season, the Beavers did not have to count a fall as they improved their season-high score by 1.825 points.
'They went out believing in themselves. They made a commitment this week, and we're going to build off this,' said coach Tanya Chaplin. 'This was a great team effort, and I'm really proud of the effort level they put out there tonight.'
Jerra Lopez had a stellar night for the Beavers, finishing second in the all-around with a career-high 39.175. She capped off the evening with a career-high 9.975 in the floor exercise, to win that event for the second time this season. She took third on bars with a 9.80, added a season-high 9.725 to finish fifth on vault and tied for fifth on beam with a 9.675.
Elizabeth Jillson and Thï¿½rï¿½se Videan also took home first-place honors. Jillson tied her season-high with a 9.90 on bars for her second win of the season, while Videan scored a 9.825 to tie for first on vault for her first collegiate victory on any event. Videan's vault score is the highest by any Beaver on that event this season.
The Beavers then moved to bars, where they looked to rebound from last week's meet that resulted in two sub-9.0 scores. OSU responded by hitting all six bar routines, highlighted by Jillson's 9.90 performance. Lopez turned in OSU's second-best score, followed by Campbell's 9.725 that earned fourth place.
Daylee Ingalls led the beam team with a career-high 9.80 that ended up tying for second place. OSU finished the rotation with a season-high 48.200 on that event, not counting a fall on beam for the first time this year, although the Beavers still have yet to go six-for-six on the event.
It was floor, though, where the Beavers really came through. OSU scored a season-high 49.400, with three scores of 9.90 or better. Lopez was nearly perfect, and Campbell (9.925) and Tanya Ricioli (9.90) helped secure a one-two-three sweep by the Beavers on that event. Prior to Friday's meet, Lopez was the only Beaver to score above a 9.825 on floor. OSU also got a pair of 9.80 marks from Videan and Heather Justus.
Washington's Emily Pritchard won the all-around with a 39.325. She took first on beam with a 9.825, tied Videan for first on vault and finished second on bars with a 9.85.
