HORNET GYMNASTICS GETS FIFTH HIGHEST SCORE IN PROGRAM HISTORY BUT LOSES TO SPARTANS
SAN JOSE, Calif.-- The Sacramento State gymnastics team recorded its fifth highest score in program history with a 193.550 but came up short against host San Jose State's school-recorded 194.300 Friday night at Spartan Gym. UC Davis came in third with a 191.825. Competing once again without junior Wendy Baisdon, the Hornets held a .025 advantage over the Spartans heading into the final rotation. San Jose State then scored a 48.775 on floor exercise to Sacramento State's 48.000 on the uneven bars to win the meet. Baisdon, the school-record holder for uneven bars, sat out her second meet with pneumonia.
The Hornets were led by career-highs on vault by junior Lara Goold (9.825) and freshman Binta Coleman (9.8) and sophomore Toni Petersen's 38.450 all-around.
Sacramento State also extended its 190-plus scoring streak to 13 meets. The Hornets will next travel to Seattle, Wash., for their second meeting of the season against the Falcons of Seattle Pacific on Saturday, Feb. 24 at 1 p.m.
