WASHINGTON, DC - The GW Gymnastics team opened the 2004 season with a team score of 192.500 to place second behind the University of North Carolina (194.800) in the six-team George Washington Invitational Sunday afternoon at GW's Smith Center.
The Tar Heels' Courtney Bumpers took all-around honors with a 39.475 after scoring a perfect 10.0 on the floor exercise and also winning the balance beam (9.850) and the vault (9.900). She placed in a tie for third with GW's Rachel Mann (Atlanta, GA/Lakeside) on the uneven parallel bars with a score of 9.725.
GW head coach Margie Foster-Cunningham singled out the performance of sophomore Tiffany Jones (Ravenna, OH/Walsh Jesuit) who placed 15th in the vault with a score of 9.550. It marked the time Jones had vaulted in collegiate competition after battling through a back injury. Jones' balance beam routine earned a 9.725, good for third place in the event.
Mann tied for fifth in the floor exercise with a 9.800, just .025 behind GW junior Meagan Wilson (Lilburn, GA/Parkview) whose 9.825 was fourth. Colonials senior Lindsay Parks (Council Bluffs, IA/Abraham Lincoln) tied Mann's 9.800 in the floor ex. GW freshman Emily Howarth (Columbus, OH/Worthington Christian), competing in her first collegiate meet, led the Colonials on the vault with a 9.725 which tied her for fourth.
The Colonials resume competition on Friday, Jan. 30, when they travel to Lexington, KY to face SEC powerhouses Kentucky and Auburn in a 7:30 p.m. meet.
