Stanford posted team scores of 48.975 on bars, 49.250 on beam, 49.275 on floor and 49.100 on vault to record a team score of 196.600. <st1:PlaceName w:st="on">Oregon</st1:PlaceName> <st1:PlaceType w:st="on">State</st1:PlaceType> (196.075), <st1:State w:st="on">Arizona</st1:State> (196.025), <st1:State w:st="on"><st1:place w:st="on">Illinois</st1:place></st1:State> (194.625) and Illinois-Chicago (190.925) rounded out the rest of the field.</SPAN></P> <P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt"><SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; FONT-FAMILY: Arial"><o:p> </o:p></SPAN></P> <P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt"><SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; FONT-FAMILY: Arial">Tabitha Yim won the all-around title with a score tally of 39.475, edging out UA&rsquo;s Karin Wurm, who matched a career high with a total of 39.425. Yim&rsquo;s 9.900 on bars was also good enough to edge out Wurm, who recorded a 9.875.

The score was one of four 9.900s or better for UA in the final event, and helped UA post a 49.425, the second high mark ever in school history on the event, to challenge the Beavers for the second qualifying spot.<o:p></o:p></SPAN></P> <P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt"><SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; FONT-FAMILY: Arial"><o:p> </o:p></SPAN></P> <P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt"><SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; FONT-FAMILY: Arial">The Beavers would not turn over the lead however, as Tasha Smith capped the OSU floor rotation with a fabulous floor performance, which received a meet-high 9.925 from the judges.
