Southeast Gymnastics Host Nationally Ranked University of Illinois-Chicago

Jan. 30, 2003

Cape Girardeau, Mo. (January 30, 2003)- The Southeast Missouri State Otahkian gymnastics squad (5-3), hosts the 19th nationally ranked Flames of the University of Illinois-Chicago. The Otahkians are seeking their sixth win of the season this Saturday. The meet is set for 1 p.m. at Houck Field House.

Southeast is coming off an impressive third place finish at the Cardinal Classic with a score of 192.425 bringing their total season average to 191.192. The Flames of UIC defeated Western Michigan on January 25 to grab their first win of the season. Their score of 195.200 solidified their national ranking and brought their total season average to a whopping 195.075.

"Being at home is always an advantage," said Southeast head coach Patty Stotzheim. "I'm anticipating a good crowd this weekend and a great performance from the team."

Otahkian gymnasts junior Ashley Godwin, senior Amy Cole, sophomore Alexis Traylor and first year Tara Boldt all performed strong at the Cardinal Classic. Junior Jacklyn Doebbler and freshman Deanna Ogg both showed promise on the beam.

UIC gymnast Alyson Cacciatore won the all-around with a career best score of 39.250 versus Western Michigan. Cacciatore won the floor competition (9.900) and bars competition (9.900), and was second on the beam with a tally of 9.825.

In conjunction with the meet against UIC Southeast is hosting a Junior Olympic competition. "It's great to have so many young gymnasts watching the college meet and the Southeast team truly gives back to the community with all the hours invested in running this competition, " said Stotzheim.

The Junior Olympic competition will have one session on Friday night and another on Saturday. The gymnasts will be girls from ages 5-18.
