McDonald Shines In Final Home Meet

March 3, 2006

Seattle - On senior night at Bank of America Arena, the Huskies lone senior, Kelly McDonald, made the most of her final home gymnastics appearance. McDonald, from Seattle's Roosevelt High School, competed All-Around for the first time in two years and won both bars and floor.

Sixteenth-ranked Oregon State (11-6 overall, 5-4 Pac-10) won the meet with a 194.600, while Washington (5-12, 2-9) was second with a 193.300 and Seattle Pacific (3-9) was third with a 189.850.The Huskies scored a 48 or higher in all events for the first time this season en route to their second-best team total of the year.

McDonald had competed on only beam and bars during the past two seasons due to a heel injury that has been surgically repaired twice since May of 2004. She last competed on all four events at the 2004 NCAA Regionals.

'It was really exciting for me,' said McDonald. 'I haven't been able to compete on floor and vault in two years. To be able to do it in my last home meet was a great feeling, especially since the team did so well too.'

McDonald was the lone Husky to win an event, taking bars with a season-high equaling 9.900 and tying for first on floor with Oregon State's Tasha Smith (Auburn, Wash./Todd Beamer HS), each scoring a 9.800. The Huskies' Kristen Omori (Kirkland, Wash./Juanita HS) was third on floor with a 9.750, followed by teammate Ashley Houghting (Welland, Ont./Northview Heights Secondary), who was fourth with a 9.725.

Oregon State's Jami Lanz won All-Around with a 39.075, followed by Houghting (38.700) and McDonald (38.625).

The Huskies hit the road, heading to Fayetteville, Arkansas to face the Arkansas Razorbacks on Sunday, March 12 at 10 a.m. PT.
