Southeast Gymnastics Host Senior Night

March 20, 2003

CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. - The Southeast Missouri State gymnastics squad (6-10) will host Winona State for the final home meet of the season on Friday, March 21 at 7 p.m. at Houck Fieldhouse. The meet will be held as senior night as the Otahkians say goodbye to senior Amy Cole.

The Otahkians are coming off of an incredible meet against Illinois State where they scored an impressive 194.800 team score, ranked fifth best in the school history, a score of 49.000 on bars to become the second best in Otahkians history, and a score of 49.225 on the floor to become the fourth best in Otahkians history. The Otahkians are currently ranked 11th in the South Central Region with an average team score of 193.080.

"I want to continue the success we experienced at Illinois State," said coach Patty Stotzheim. "We finally were able to count five routines on each event that were solid, hit routines. That was the first time that happened this year. Usually, we're hitting with that kind of consistency by the fourth or fifth meet. So, we have been long overdue."

The Otahkians will say farewell to senior Amy Cole at the last home meet. Cole has been a special addition to the team with positive attitudes and consistency in her routines. Cole leaves her presence with the Otahkians by ranking second in team history for highest bars score with a 9.900 in 2002.

"Amy is an impressive young woman," said Stotzheim. " An unrelenting perfectionist, she is constantly striving to do her best in all her endeavors. She has earned a 4.0 GPA nearly every semester, ending up with a 3.99 cumulative GPA in Health Management. I believe she is one of the most impressive people to have walked through this program. I am being very sincere when I say that she will be missed!"

Winona State is currently ranked 10th in the North Central Region and seventh in Division II gymnastics with a team score average of 180.575. The Warriors are coached by Rob Murray and Beckie Rolbiecki.

Next the Otahkians will compete in the Midwest Independent Championships on March 29 at Centenary College in Shreveport, La.
