Gymnastics Hopes to Improve `Record' Against Hamline

Jan. 29, 2004

CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO - The Southeast Missouri State women's gymnastics will host Hamline University Friday at 7 p.m. at Houck Field House. The Southeast squad is 4-1 on the season, as its only loss came against No. 15 Missouri last Sunday. Despite the loss, the Otahkians performed magnificently, scoring 194.300--the 10th best team score in school history.

Breaking into the record books has been nothing new to the 2004 squad. In just three meets this year, the squad has posted scores in the school's Top Ten record book on nine separate occasions.

Last weekend, juniors Katie Bloom and Alexis Traylor and sophomore Tara Boldt all earned spots in the Southeast record book. Bloom scored a 9.875 on vault to give her the sixth highest score in school history. It was the highest score in that event since 1997. Traylor, after winning the floor exercise at home against Bowling Green on Jan. 23, won the event two days later at the University of Missouri. She did so with an outstanding 9.925 performance-the fifth best score in Southeast history. Boldt, who already hold the second best beam performance at Southeast, scored a 9.900 Sunday to place her third on the list. She also won the all-around event at Missouri with a superb score of 39.150-the ninth best in Otahkian history.


Friday night Southeast will host Hamline University. The Otahks squared off with the Pipers on Jan. 17 and defeated them, along with two other teams at the Hamline Quadrangular. The Pipers' assistant coach is former Southeast head coach Patty Stotzheim-who left Southeast to pursue a law degree. At the meet two weeks ago, Southeast dominated every event with a score of 185.075.

Senior Ashley Godwin won the all-around with a score of 37.700, while teammates Boldt and Bloom took second and third place. Godwin won the bars and floor competition, while Boldt won the beam, and Bloom the vault.

Friday's meet with Hamline is the second of just five home meets for the Southeast squad. They topped Bowling Green last Friday 194.175-191.425.

This Friday's meet will be Greek Night, and as always, all students get in free of charge.
