Apisukh Records 10 on Vault for Husky Gym Team
March 17, 2001
Corvallis, OR - Washington senior Lanna Apisukh became the second Husky gymnast to ever record a perfect score of 10 on vault when she did so Saturday at Oregon State's Shanico Inn-Vitational. Apisukh's score helped Washington to set a school record in the event with a score of 49.450. Despite the strong scoring on vault, the Huskies had to count falls on bars and beam and came in second behind Oregon State at the four-way meet.
The Beavers won their final home meet of the year with a score of 197.625, while Washington turned in a score of 195.775. Cal State Fullerton was third with a score of 194.175 and Seattle Pacific was fourth at 192.575.
In addition to winning the vault competition, Apisukh finished second in the all-around with a score of 39.550, a career high. Oregon State's Annie Campbell won the all-around with a score of 39.625.
Washington junior Stacy Wong tied Oregon State's Marissa Bruch for top honors on beam with a career high score of 9.950.
Apisukh became the first Husky since Klara Kudilkova, in 1996 at the Pac-10 Championships, to score 10.000 on vault. She is the second Husky this second to record a 10. Mandi Klug had a perfect routine on floor exercise on March 4 against Utah and Western Michigan.
Vault has been Apisukh's most challenging event. Prior to Saturday's meet, her previous best score this year on the event was a 9.875 last week at Boise State. Her career high score on the event was just 9.900.
The Huskies will host the Pac-10 Championships next Saturday at 6 p.m. at Bank of America Arena.
