Feb. 11, 2005
SEATTLE, Wash. - Oregon State (6-3) posted season-highs on three events as the Beavers knocked off two higher ranked teams on its way to a season-high score of 195.975 Friday night at Bank of America Arena at Hec Edmundson Pavilion. No. 12 Arkansas (195.550) and No. 19 Washington (195.275) kept the evening close, but the Beavers were able to comeback in the final rotation to get the wins.
The Beavers, who have competed the past few meets with makeshift lineups due to injury received a boost of four routines to competition. Chelsea Plourde (flu-like symptoms) returned to her three lineups (vault, bars, beam) and Thérèse Videan (strained calf) returned to anchor the floor lineup for the first time in three meets. Heather Justus and her three routines remains out with a (sprained elbow).
Oregon State started the night on the uneven bars, an apparatus that gave the Beavers fits last week, and scored a season-high 49.075. It marked the first time in 2005 that the Beavers have achieved the 49-point mark on the bars this season. Videan (9.90), Chrissy Lamun and Lindsay Nelson (9.85 each), and Heidi Goehring (9.825) posted their highest marks of the season for the Beavers. OSU also counted Daylee Ingalls' 9.65.
Despite the season-best effort, OSU trailed the Huskies by .1 going into the second rotation. The Beavers answered the challenge with another season-high 48.900 on the balance beam. All five scores used by OSU on the beam set or matched season-highs. Lamun's 9.85 led the way for the Beavers, 9.775 scores by Angela Morales, Goehring, and Plourde, and a 9.725 by Claire Pierce completed the scoring for OSU.
After two events the Beavers headed to the floor exercise with a lead of only .075. OSU put together a solid 48.725 with Goehring leading the floor team with 9.800. The Beavers used Morales' 9.775, Pierce and Videan each scored 9.725, and Lamun added a 9.700.
Returning to the trailing position with Arkansas taking its first lead of the night with a .1 lead over the Beavers. OSU had an answer as the vault team took action. Kim Sedlak led off for the Beavs with a career-high 9.650 and the next four vaulters took it from there, all posting season-highs. Two freshman led the way to victory as Megan Devencenzi scored 9.925 and Yuki Lamb landed a 9.900.
