Gymnastics Post Second Highest Score Of The Season

March 5, 2003

Cape Girardeau, Mo. (March 5, 2003)- The Southeast Missouri State University gymnastics squad (5-8) performed strong to defeat the Eagles of Eastern Michigan 193.975-191.750. The consistency at home has been a bright spot for the Otahkians as they post their second highest overall team score of the year.

Otahkian junior Ashley Godwin flourished in both the uneven bars and floor exercise scoring a 9.825 on both events. Godwin placed first in the all-around with a score of 39.075 edging fellow teammate freshman Tara Boldt who placed second with a mark of 38.850. Boldt's second place as an all-arounder was due to her first place performance on the balance beam with a score of 9.825 and third place finish on the vault tallying 9.750.

Other Southeast notables include senior Amy Cole and sophomore Michelle Albury both tied for third place on the uneven bars with a score of 9.775. Cole and sophomore Alexis Traylor both tied for third place on the floor exercise scoring a 9.775.

"Our team has been performing consistently all season at home," said Southeast head coach Patty Stotzheim. "We still have to perform stronger on the balance beam to increase our overall total score."

The Eastern Michigan University Eagles were led by senior Natalie Hashimoto placing third as an all-arounder with a score of 38.600. Natalie Hashimoto placed first on the vault with a score of 9.850 and second place on the uneven bars with a tally of 9.800. Eagle junior Jennie Spindler placed second on the balance beam with a score of 9.800. Eagle senior Leah Hashimoto tied Otahkian junior Ashley Godwin for first place on the floor exercise with a score of 9.825.

The Otahkians travel to the University of Kentucky on March 14, at 7:30 p.m. where they will compete versus Kentucky and the University of Denver.
