Meet Results in pdf format?

The No. 20 Arizona gymnastics team traveled the short distance to Tempe, Ariz. today to compete against Pac-10 rival No. 17 ASU. The Cats won the meet by a slim margin of 195.925- 195.725 making it their fifth victory of the season.? Moreover, it is the first time since 1987 the Cats have won against ASU in a duel away meet.? Last year, the Cats beat the Sun Devils in unbiased meets such as the Pac-10 Championships and regionals, but not in the duel meet during the regular season. The team has now improved its record to 5-2 overall and 2-2 in the Pac-10, and set its season high team score with a 195.925.

Starting on the bars, the Wildcats began the night strong, with senior Karin Wurm taking first place along with another ASU gymnast, both scoring a 9.925.? This score ties Wurmˇ?s personal best on the bars. Wildcat junior Briana Bergeson also shared third place with a Sun Devil, notching a solid 9.875, making it her season high and career high. Overall, the Cats scored a 49.025, marking another season high on the event.

On the vault, the Cats grew even stronger as redshirt sophomore Sarah Specht, junior Bree Workman, and senior Karin Wurm had a three-way tie for first place, all scoring a 9.775. Freshmen Colleen Fisher added to the bunch, scoring a 9.750?giving her fifth place, while the total team score was a 48.775.? The two teams were tied after the first two events of the night.

?

The momentum continued on the floor exercise, the teamˇ?s third event of the night, as the Cats notched a total score of 49.000, a season high. Wurm tied another personal best score of 9.900, giving her the honors of first place, while redshirt sophomore Sarah Specht tied for third with two other ASU gymnasts, all scoring a 9.825.? This marked for a .05 lead by the Wildcats.

?

ˇ?I was excited that we were doing so well and had the lead after three eventsˇ± said head coach Bill Ryden.

On beam, the Wildcatˇ?s toughest and final event of the night, junior Alexis Greene took first place, scoring a solid 9.875. This made for Greeneˇ?s season high, and set her overall personal best score on the event as well. Arizonaˇ?s junior Briana Bergeson and Karin Wurm took second place with another ASU gymnast, all scoring a 9.850. This made a season high for both Bergeson and Wurm. The team score was also a season high with a 49.125.

After seemingly dominating the night, Arizonaˇ?s senior Karin Wurm swept the All-Around with a final score of 39.450, setting yet another season high and personal best.? It is also the third meet in a row where Wurm has won the all-around.

?

ˇ?Iˇ?m pretty speechless about the whole thing, because it truly was a historic moment in our program. It has never happened during my time here, and I didnˇ?t know if it ever would,ˇ± said Ryden.? ˇ?We wanted to come out and do our job. We did not count any falls and did great.ˇ±

The Arizona gymnastics team returns to McKale Center next week to compete against other Pac-10 rival UCLA.? The duel meet is the teamˇ?s breast cancer awareness meet, and will take place on Friday, Feb. 22, at 7:30 p.m.
