Cape Girardeau, Mo. (January 17, 2002) - The Southeast Missouri Gymnastics squad will open up its home season this Friday as it plays host to the Eagles of Wisconsin - La Crosse, and the Huskies of Northern Illinois at 7 p.m. at Houck Field House.

Southeast is coming off its second loss of the season at the hands of Illinois State. Southeast was neck and neck with ISU until ISU's rotation on the Floor as the Redbirds scored a 49.15 on the event and secured the three-point win. Sophomore Ashley Godwin was the individual champion once again in the vault with a 9.750, as junior Amy Cole had a career-high 9.800 on the bars. Godwin finished a tenth of a point off the lead for the all-around championship.

The Huskies are 0-2 so far this season with losses coming to Western Michigan and the University of Michigan. The last time they faced Southeast, they tallied the second-highest team score of all-time at NIU with a mark of 194.675. NIU is led by a veteran and rookie in senior Rosa Marafioti and freshman Kristina Campos. Against Michigan last week, Marafioti had a team high of 9.725 on the beam, while Campos, a Gladstone, Mo. native, finished third in the all-around.

The Eagles are the defending Division III National Champions. They are 4-1 so far this season with wins coming over Wisconsin - Whitewater, Wisconsin-Oskosh, Wisconsin - Eau Claire, and Wisconsin - River Falls. Their only loss was to Texas Woman's University. They are led by a pair of seniors in Jenny Moore and Tricia Clark. Clark has recorded a team-high 9.675 in the floor exercise this season while Moore has the team-high in all-around with a score of 36.100.

The Otahkians will travel to Columbia, Mo. this Sunday as they take on the Tigers of the University of Missouri.
