TUCSON, Ariz. -
For the third meet in a row, Oregon State (8-3) scored better than 195 en route to its fifth straight win beating No. 18 Arizona 195.075-194.325 at McKale Center Friday night. The Beavers, who beat the Wildcats for the fifth time in a row, used wins on the bars and floor to gain the victory.
Starting the meet on the bars, the Beavers got off to a solid start going six-for-six with Thérèse Videan leading the way with a score of 9.750. A pair of 9.725's by Heidi Goehring and Chelsea Plourde, a 9.700 from Lindsay Nelson and Chrissy Lamun's 9.650 completed the scoring on bars.
OSU trailed as it headed to their second event 49.125-48.550, but three falls on bars by the Wildcats put the Beavers into the lead. An impressive vault by Videan earned OSU a 9.875 to get the Beavers going on vault. Yuki Lamb had another top performance on vault scoring 9.825, while fellow freshman Megan Devencenzi scored 9.750. The Beavers also counted 9.725's by Daylee Ingalls and Angela Morales.
Oregon State's floor team went into action holding a solid 97.450-96.700 lead, with Goehring and Heather Justus posting great performances, scoring 9.800's. Justus' performance was all the more impressive as she was returning to competition for the first time in four weeks after an elbow injury. Videan continued her outstanding night with a 9.775 and Claire Pierce scored 9.700. Morales completed the scoring at 9.650.
Clinging to the lead at 146.175-145.700 the Beavers closed out the evening with six solid routines on the balance beam. Lamun tied for the beam title for the third meet in a row with a score of 9.875. Plourde and Goehring scored at 9.775 and Ingalls added a 9.750.
