Washington Gym Team Falls to Arizona State

Jan. 17, 2003

Tempe, AZ - The Washington women's gymnastics team (0-1) lost its season opener at 16th-ranked Arizona by a score of 197.300 to 194.150. The Sun Devils total was the third highest in Arizona State history. Washington's score was the best season-opening score in the program's 29-year history.

Washington freshman Kelly McDonald won the vault with a score of 9.925 while junior Emily Pritchard tied for first on uneven bars with a score of 9.900.

Pritchard finished third in the all-around with a score of 38.925. In addition to her bars win, she tied for second on vault at 9.900, was seventh on floor at 9.700 but suffered a fall on beam to post a score of 9.425 to finish 11th in that event.

Husky junior Tanya Powers was fifth in the all while McDonald, the only freshmen to compete for the Huskies, was sixth in the overall at her first meet with a score of 37.650. Arizona State's Maggie Germaine won the overall at 39.625.

'It was nice to get the season started with a solid score,' said Husky coach Bob Levesque, 'but we had a chance to do much better. We had too many falls tonight and need to correct that before next week.'

Stacy Wong, who missed the 2002 season due to a knee injury, returned to Washington's lineup and competed on vault and beam. She finished second on vault with a score of 9.900 and was eighth on beam at 9.750.

The Sun Devils Kari Muth and Ashley Kelly tied Pritchard for the bars title and Kelly took the beam title with a 9.950 performance. Germaine won floor exercise for the Sun Devils with a mark of 9.950.

The Huskies home opener is next Friday against Arizona and San Jose State at 7 p.m. at Bank of America Arena at Hec Edmundson Pavilion.
