Four Bruins Named To All-Pac-10 Gymnastics Team

April 3, 2007

Walnut Creek, Calif. - UCLA gymnasts Anna Li, Jordan Schwikert, Tasha Schwikert and Michelle Selesky have been named to the Pac-10 All-Conference team. Tasha Schwikert and Li received honors in the all-around, while Selesky and Jordan Schwikert were named on the vault and uneven bars, respectively.

Tasha Schwikert led the way in the all-around after winning the Pac-10 all-around title for the second time in her career, scoring a 39.75, and ranking as the No. 3 gymnast in the nation with a regional qualifying score of 39.525. Schwikert, this season's Pac-10 Gymnast of the Year, also won the vault, beam and floor titles at the Pac-10 Championships. As a freshman in 2005, she tied for the all-around title and won the uneven bars crown with a perfect 10 at the Pac-10 Championships and was named the Pac-10 Freshman of the Year.

Li earned a third-place all-around finish at the Pac-10 Championships with a score of 39.45 and tied for first on beam with Tasha Schwikert with a career-high 9.95. Li, who is the only conference freshman honored in the all-around, currently ranks 18th in the nation in the all-around and is tied for 11th on the uneven bars.

Selesky received her first all-conference honor in her first and last season as a regular in the Bruin lineup. The senior and former walk-on scored a career-high-tying 9.925 to tie for third-place on vault at the Pac-10 Championships and currently ranks 31st in the nation and sixth in the conference on the event. Selesky was also honored last week as a second-team Pac-10 All-Academic selection.

Jordan Schwikert tied for fourth place on the uneven bars at the Pac-10 Championships with a 9.9 and is tied for eighth in the conference on the event. She has scored as high as 9.975 this season. As a freshman in 2005, she earned all-conference honors in the all-around.

The All-Conference teams consist of the top six all-around competitors, plus the top three competitors in each individual event not amongst the all-around selections. A gymnast's score is determined by a combination of 50 percent regional qualifying score (entire season composite) and 50 percent Pac-10 Conference Championship score.
