Mann Wins the All-Around
Feb. 23, 2003
WASHINGTON, DC - After a couple of sluggish performances, the GW gymnastics team exploded in Morgantown, WV to score a 195.175 and squeak past the Mountaineers by .025 in a dual meet on Sunday, February 23. The Colonials had been scoring around 190-191 during the season, but got solid contributions from the whole team and was able to put up their best score of the season.
Junior Rachel Mann (Atlanta, GA/Lakeside) took the lead for the Colonials and scored high on each apparatus to take the all-around with a 39.025. Freshman Heather Kaufman (Austin, TX/McCallum) continued her strong season and finished third in the all-around with a score of 38.875.
Junior Lindsay Parks (Council Bluffs, IA/Abraham Lincoln) led the team to a season high on vault, 48.725, by scoring her season high with a 9.800. Both junior Lauren Bernstein (St. Louis, MO/Clayton) and freshman Erin Aiken (Centreville, VA/Chantilly) contributed career highs with scores of 9.750 and 9.725, respectively.
The Colonials also scored a season high on the uneven bars by tallying a 48.525. Freshman Amy Stack (Matthews, NC/Providence) put a great routine together to score a career high of 9.750. Senior Melissa Suter (Chesapeake, VA/Deep Creek) equaled Stack's mark with her best effort of the season.
The balance beam, which has been one of the tougher events for the Colonials this season, proved to be the deciding event on the evening. The women established their best score of the season, 48.900, and scored .800 higher than West Virginia, which would prove to be the difference in the meet. Freshman Tiffany Jones (Ravenna, OH/Walsh Jesuit) won the event with a great routine that turned out to be her best score of the season, 9.850. The trend continued when both Kaufman and sophomore Meagan Wilson (Lilburn, GA/Parkview) put up season bests with 9.800s.
The women completed the evening by scoring a season high for the fourth time with a 49.025. Mann led the way with a 9.875 and was followed by Kaufman who scored a 9.825.
The Colonials will look to continue their improvements on Wednesday, February 26 at the Smith Center in Washington, D.C. when they take on James Madison at 7:00 p.m.
