Gymnasts Finish Sixth In Session 2 At NCAA's

April 15, 2004

Sophomore Ashley Kelly tied for fourth in the all-around with a score of 39.575, pacing Arizona State University to a sixth-place finish in Session 2 of the 2004 NCAA Championships at UCLA's Pauley Pavilion in Los Angeles Thursday.

The top three teams in each session advance to the Super Six Championships tomorrow night at 7 p.m. Therefore, the Sun Devils did not advance to tomorrow night's championship. The appearance in the nationals was ASU's sixth in the past eight years.

The Sun Devils team total was 196.325. Host UCLA won the Championship Session 2 with a score of 197.675 while Alabama (197.325) was second and Utah (196.925) was third. LSU (196.65) fourth and Michigan was fifth (196.5). ASU was sixth (196.325).

In Session 1 Thursday afternoon, Florida (196.85, T-1st), Stanford (196.85, T-1st) and Georgia (196.775, third) placed in the top three to advance to the Super Six Friday night. Nebraska (196.150, fourth), Oklahoma (195.75, fifth) and Iowa (194.775, sixth) did not qualify.

Overall, ASU finished ninth in the overall competition. ASU placed ninth at the NCAA's in Lincoln, Neb. Last year.

'It was a very successful season for us,' said Sun Devil Head Coach John Spini. 'Ashley Kelly will compete in the individual finals on Saturday. We were inconsistent for most of the year until the final three or four meets. We had a tough draw here. I cannot figure out why we're not getting our scores on bars. We have a good bars team. We were picked ninth in the preseason and we finished ninth. We were one of the better beam teams here. All in all I wasn't disappointed.'

By virtue of her three-way tie for first-place (9.9) on the balance beam, Kelly qualifies to compete in the individual finals on Saturday night at 7 p.m. Kelly tied with Alabama's Jeana Rice and Michigan's Elise Ray. Senior Maggie Germaine placed 17th in the all-around with a 39.1. Jusino was 15th (39.175). Rice won the all-around, scoring 39.65.

After a bye in the first rotation, ASU began the competition on the uneven bars, scoring a 48.95. Junior Kari Muth led off with a 9.75 and freshman Cassandra Jusino followed with a 9.825. Sophomore Lauren Powell posted a 9.725 while senior Maggie Germaine recorded a 9.675, ASU's non-counting score. Following a 9.775 by senior Carla DeMartini, sophomore Ashley Kelly finished with a 9.875. Two of ASU's bars routines were marred by slight missteps on the dismounts.The Sun Devils then moved to the balance beam where they were led by Kelly with a 9.9. Muth led off with a 9.75 followed by senior Amber Giorgianni's 9.725. Germaine kicked in a 9.75 and Jusino posted a 9.725. The team beam score was 48.925. ASU's team score after two events was 97.875.

Following a bye in the fourth rotation, ASU performed on the floor exercise, scoring 49.15, once again led by Kelly's crowd-pleasing 9.9. Freshman April Boone led off with a 9.8 while Muth turned in a 9.85 as did Germaine. Jusino scored a 9.75 with a penalty for stepping out of bounds. Powell suffered a fall (9.2). ASU's team score of 49.15 was its best event score of the meet. .

On ASU's final event of the evening in the fifth rotation, the Sun Devils scored 49.3. Cox recorded a 9.825 to lead off the effort in the final event of her career. Boone followed with a 9.85 and Kelly scored another 9.9. DeMartini matched Boone's 9.85 while, in her final career event, Germaine matched Cox with 9.825. Jusino's 9.875 was the final routine of the evening for the Sun Devils. The team score of 49.3 was ASU's fifth-best vault total of the year.

Attendance for Session 2 was 3,559.
