Top Score for the Colonials This Season
Feb. 21, 2004
KENT, OH - The George Washington women's gymnastics team turned in their best performance of the season, finishing second at Kent St., with a 195.400 on Friday, February 20. Senior Rachel Mann (Atlanta, GA/Lakeside) had an excellent evening finishing as the top Colonial on the floor exercise and tying with sophomore Erin Aiken (Centreville, VA/Chantilly) and freshman Maggie Parrack (Richardson, TX/J.J. Pearce) on the uneven bars.
GW scored a respectable 48.525 on the vault behind a pair of 9.850s from Aiken and senior Lindsay Parks (Council Bluffs, IA/Abraham Lincoln) which tied them for second place on the event. Freshman Emily Howarth (Columbus, OH/Wothington Christian) was the next finisher for the Colonials with a 9.775.
The GW lineup on the uneven bars was extremely consistent with all performers scoring between 9.775 and 9.700 on the way to a 48.775. Mann, along with Aiken and Parrack, scored 9.775, while sophomore Heather Kaufman (Austin, TX/ McCallum) received a 9.750.
The Colonials had one of their better nights on the balance beam, finishing the event with a 48.850. Aiken continued to show why coach Foster-Cunningham thought she could be a factor this season by scoring a 9.875. Junior Meagan Wilson (Lilburn, GA/Parkview) and freshman Jess Guilbert (Leesburg, VA/Stone Bridge) tied as the next finishers for GW at 9.850.
GW's overall score got a huge boost from their performance on the floor exercise. They didn't have a gymnast score under 9.725, which led to an event score of 49.250. Rachel Mann appears to be regaining her form from last season by scoring a 9.900, while her fellow senior and captain Lindsay Parks put up a 9.875. Jess Guilbert put together a great routine, which received a 9.850.
Next up, the Colonials will travel to Raleigh, NC on Friday, February 27 to take on the Wolfpack of NC State at 7:00 p.m.
