OU's women gymnasts took first place at the meet Friday and are hoping for more audience support from students in their next big meet.
The number 11 ranked gymnastics team won titles on beam, vault, floor, along with the highest overall score at the Lloyd Noble Center Friday, February 20, 2009. The sooners team tally of 196.35 barely beat number 13 ranked, Mizzou, with a score of 196.225.
"Well this win for the team meant a lot to us but for the rest of this season it did not set anything in stone for us," Melanie Root, sophomore gymnast, said. "This win was not an easy one for us and the University of Missouri is going to want to beat us that much more at the Big 12 competition. We are always striving to get more audience, it always makes the floor routines that much more fun."
The last home meet, "Senior Night", will be Friday, March 6, 2009 at 7:00 pm at the Lloyd Noble Center. Students are admitted free with a student ID.
