Washington Upends No. 20 California

Jan. 27, 2002

SEATTLE, Wash. - Washington won all four individual event titles to defeat 20th-ranked California 194.800 to 192.625 at Bank of America Arena at Hec Edmundson Pavilion. The Huskies were led by sophomore Molly Seaman, who finished first in the all-around for the first-time in her career with a score of 39.250.

UW's sophomore Tanya Powers took home her first event title by winning vault with a score of 9.900. That was one of four career-best scores Powers posted on the day. She had a 9.825 on beam to finish second, a 9.725 on floor and 39.200 on all-around.

For Cal, freshman Lauren Shipp performed well in back-to-back meets as she placed third on the vault (9.825) and sixth on the beam (9.750). Fellow freshman My-Lan Dodd tied for first on the bars, scoring a 9.850

'I think it was kind of a long weekend for everybody,' said coach Trina Tinti. 'But Lauren (Shipp) did really well considering this is the first weekend she competed two meets in one weekend.'

Washington jumped out to a quick lead in the dual-meet by recording a season high score of 48.850 on vault. The Bears never recovered from the Huskies' quick start as they trailed for the rest of the meet.

Cal hosts Arizona State in another Pac-10 dual meet Sunday, Feb. 3 at 2 p.m. at the Recreational Sports Facility Field House.

Originally slated for Haas Pavilion, Sunday's meet was moved to the RSF Field House due to facility restrictions at the Pavilion. The rest of Cal's meets in 2002 will move back to Haas Pavilion.
