Feb. 15, 2002
Corvallis, Ore. - Annie Campbell won the all-around for the second week in a row as the No. 21 Oregon State gymnastics team upset No. 11 Arizona, 196.475-195.625, at Gill Coliseum on Friday night.
The Beavers, whose 196.475 score is the ninth best in school history, did not have to count a fall for the second time this season. OSU did have misses on bars and floor, but neither had to be counted in the team totals.
'I'm pleased we didn't have to count a fall. We're having less falls each meet. Tonight we were 22 for 24, and each competition we're doing a little better,' said coach Tanya Chaplin. 'They're focusing and coming together, and they're seeing that hard work is paying off.'
Campbell finished the night with a season-best 39.450 to win the all-around for the second week in a row. She tied teammate Jerra Lopez for first on floor with a 9.925, marking the second consecutive meet the duo shared the title on event. Campbell also finished second on beam with a season-high 9.875, took third on bars with a season-high 9.85 and tied for fourth with a 9.80 on vault.
OSU opened the meet with a season-high 48.950 on vault. Thï¿½rï¿½se Videan led the way with a career-best 9.85 to place second, while Heather Justus matched her season-best with a 9.80 to tie Campbell and UA's Nikki Beyschau for fourth place. OSU also got a season-high from Tanya Ricioli, who scored a 9.775. Arizona's Andi McCabe, the fourth-ranked vaulter in the country, won the event with a 9.875.
The Beavers had another season-best on bars in the second rotation, this time turning in a 49.225 score. OSU ended up sweeping the top three places on bars, with Elizabeth Jillson scoring a season-best 9.925 to win the event for the fourth time this season. Ricioli had a career-high 9.875 to place second, while Campbell tied UA's Randi Liljenquist for third. OSU also counted Lindsay Nelson's 9.825 and Heidi Goehring's 9.75.
For the first time this season, OSU went six-for-six on beam, and the result was a 48.975, improving the team's season-best by 0.650 points. Campbell's 9.875 is the highest beam score by a Beaver gymnast this season. The Beavers also got a career-best from Daylee Ingalls, who placed fourth with a 9.825. Jerra Lopez took sixth with a 9.775, while Ricioli and Elaine Yoder rounded out the counting scores with 9.75 marks. Liljenquist took top honors on the event with a 9.90.
The Beavers took the top three places on floor after scoring a 49.325 on the event. Lopez and Campbell were victorious for the second week in a row after their 9.925 routines. Yoder set a new personal best with a 9.85 to tie for third with Videan and Arizona's Liljenquist and Katie Johnson.
