Cape Girardeau, Mo. (February 9, 2002) - The Otahkian Gymnastics team had its best meet so far this season as they squared off against the 18th ranked Hawkeyes of the University of Iowa, Saturday, but fell by a sixth of a point, 193.950-193.325.

Behind a ruckus crowd at Houck Field House, the Otahks had event after event that saw them score very well, capped off by a season-high 49.050 on the floor exercise to finish off the night. The score was the eighth highest team total for the event ever.

Southeast was led by sophomore Ashley Godwin and senior Michelle Walker as Godwin won her eighth individual title this season as she shared the bars title, while Walker tied her personal best on the floor with a 9.900, also sharing the title. Godwin was second in the vault with a 9.825, and second in the all-around with a score of 39.100, tying a career best. The event also marked the return of senior Jessica Bagwill, as she scored an 8.775 on the bars.

Iowa was led by Annie Rue as she won the all-around with a score of 39.175. She didn't win any of the individual titles, but was consistent enough to capture the all-around. The highlight of the evening for the Hawkeye fans was a perfect 10 on the vault by sophomore Stephanie Gran. Janna Alexandrova won the beam with a score of 9.925, while Alexis Maday shared the bars title with a 9.875. Michelle Ford shared the floor title with a score of 9.900.

Southeast will travel next Sunday to Denton, Texas to take on the Pioneers of Texas Woman's University and the Falcons of the Air Force Academy in a triangle on the campus of Texas Woman's. The meet is slated to start at 2 p.m.
