SAN JOSE, Calif. – The No. 14 Broncos came up with a team score over 196 for the second-straight week as they defeated No. 23 Iowa State and host San Jose State at the Event Center Arena in San Jose on Friday evening.

The Broncos (6-0) came through with a team score of 196.400 after strong team scores on vault, bars and floor. Iowa State finished second in the tri-meet with a score of 195.725, while host San Jose State finished third with a score of 194.500.

The Broncos had season-high team scores on vault (49.250), floor (49.375) and tied their season high on bars (49.225) to propel them to victory after an uncharacteristic beam rotation that forced them to count a 9.55 score.

On the meet, co-head coach Tina Bird said, “We had a great meet on three events. We will get back to work on beam this week and will be ready for our next meet, next Friday at home vs. Utah State.”

En route to the all-around title she also won the floor exercise title with a score of 9.925. Senior Mary Frances Bir was the other meet champion, as she won the vault title with a score of 9.925. The Broncos started out strong on bars and were led by senior Ann Stockwell, who tied her season-high score on the event, 9.875. Sophomore Courtney McGregor also had a strong routine, coming through with a score of 9.850.

The Broncos were leading after the first rotation, but had an uncharacteristically tough time on beam. Both McGregor and senior Sandra Collantes each earned 9.55 scores, forcing one to count. The always steady Shani Remme led the team on the event with a score of 9.850.

The next rotation for the Broncos was floor, and they bounced back with their best team score of the year on the event, 49.375. Remme tied her career-high score on floor to lead the Broncos, 9.925. Two seniors were outstanding, as Collantes tied her season-high mark of 9.900, while Abby Webb set a new season-high on the vent with a score of 9.875.

The Broncos then ended on a strong note, setting a new season-high team mark on the event with a combined score of 49.250. For the third-straight week the Broncos were set by senior Mary Frances Bir, who won the event with a score of 9.925. Stockwell also had a strong vault, finishing with a score of 9.875.
