Final Stats

Chicago, Ill. (March 23, 2002) - The Otahkian Gymnastics team had a record-setting performance Saturday night in Chicago at the Midwest Independent Championships, but it wasn't enough to un-seed the host school Illinois-Chicago as they broke a school record with their score to win the competition.

Southeast would finish third in the final standings behind UIC, Illinois State, but finish ahead of Centenary and Winona State. The Otahks had a team score of 193.875, their best of the season, and just .075 away from a top-10 score in school history. The Otahks had team scores of 48.250 on vault, 48.600 on bars, 48.800 on beam, and 48.225 on the floor. The beam score was the fourth-best in school history, while the bars score was the eighth-best.

Leading Southeast was its sophomore superstar, Ashley Godwin. Godwin finished second in the All-Around with a score of 39.275, her all-time best, and also the third-best all-around score in school history. She finished tied for first in the beam with a 9.900, which is the second-best score on that event in school history. She also finished third on the vault with a score of 9.750.

Other strong scores for the Otahks included a 38.925 in the all-around for Amy Cole, her career-best score. That score was enough for fourth place in the all-around competition. Elenor Wilson and Stephanie Furman had a 9.800 on the beam, as well as Jessica Bagwill recording a 9.775 on the bars in her final competition of her career.

The Otahks will now wait until Monday when the Regional performers are announced. Senior Michelle Walker, as well as Cole and Godwin have strong chances to make the team and will be waiting patiently for the results. If any of them make the cut, they will go on to Tempe, Arizona and Arizona State University to compete in Regional action April 6.
