Seven Bruins Named To All-Pac-10 Gymnastics Team

March 31, 2010

Walnut Creek, CA - A conference-best seven Bruins were named to the 2010 Pac-10 All-Conference team. Leading the way was Pac-10 Gymnast of the Year Vanessa Zamarripa, who earned first-team honors in the all-around for the second consecutive year. Elyse Hopfner-Hibbs earned first-team honors on all three events in which she competed at Pac-10s - vault, beam and floor. Pac-10 bars champion Anna Li earned first-team honors on bars and vault, while Pac-10 floor co-champion Brittani McCullough received first-team acclaim on floor and second-team honors for the second consecutive year on vault.

Receiving Pac-10 honors for the first time were sophomore Tauny Frattone, a first-team honoree on vault, and freshman Lichelle Wong, a first-team honoree on bars. Sophomore Aisha Gerber was named to the all-conference team on beam for the second-straight year, this year receiving second-team honors.

The All-Conference first team consists of the top six all-around competitors, plus the top three competitors in each individual event who are not among the all-around honorees. Individuals may earn All-Conference honors in multiple individual events. Scores are determined by a combination of 50 percent regional qualifying score (entire regular season composite) and 50 percent Pacific-10 Conference Championships score. The All-Conference second team consists of 10 individuals who were not honored on the first team.
