19 Pac-10 gymnastics routines were awarded scores of 9.9 or higher last weekend, including three consecutive by the Cardinal's Allyse Ishino, Alyssa Brown, and Nicole Pechanec. Eight Conference gymnasts - Ishino (3), Shelley Alexander (5), and Ashley Morgan (6) of STANFORD, Leslie Mak (13) of OREGON STATE, Elyse Hopfner-Hibbs (16), Sydney Sawa (20), Brittani McCullough (21), and Olivia Courtney (24) of UCLA have landed in the nation's Individual Top 25. 21 others are placed in the elite standings for event specialty. There is no doubt that Pac-10 performances are garnering attention across the nation.
This week's head-to-head action showcases two Pac-10 rivalries: WASHINGTON at ARIZONA STATE, and Stanford at ARIZONA. CALIFORNIA travels to Davis, Calif. to take on the Aggies of UC Davis for the second time this season. The Bears and the Aggies competed against one another earlier this season in a tri-meet in Berkeley, where the Aggies edged the Bears by .125, 192.600-192.475, in that meet. UCLA hosts North Carolina State Monday, Feb. 21 in its first annual Heart of a Champion meet. The Heart of a Champion meet will help raise funds for Camp del Corazon, which is a non-profit organization that provides a free of charge summer camp for children with heart disease.
