WALNUT CREEK, Calif. -- STANFORD senior Allyse Ishino and UCLA sophomore Vanessa Zamarripa merited Pac-10 Gymnast of the Week and Special Performance of the Week honors, respectively, for Feb. 22-28, Commissioner Larry Scott announced today.
Ishino, a senior from Santa Ana, Calif., earned her first-career collegiate all-around (29.425) victory during the Cardinal’s (196.525) quad-meet win over North Carolina (192.975), Eastern Michigan (190.125) and California (188.825). Ishino won the individual title on bars (9.875) and beam (9.825), and recorded a personal best on the floor (9.875) to finish third. She also took third on the vault with a score of 9.85.
This marks the first-career weekly honor for Ishino and Stanford’s 17th all-time Pac-10 Gymnast of the Week selection.
Zamarripa, a native of O’Fallon, Ill., recorded her first perfect 10 of the season and fourth of her career with a flawless Yurchenko layout full vault as the third-ranked Bruins (197.25) defeated Cal State Fullerton (191.75) and Utah State (188.7). For the season, she has scored a 9.9 or greater on 18 of her 29 routines across all apparatuses.
