BOISE, Idaho--The 14th-ranked Boise State gymnastics team topped Alaska Anchorage, 196.800-192.500 on senior night in Taco Bell Arena. The Broncos honored senior co-captains Kelsey Morris and Ciera Perkins, and capped the night with the eighth-best team score in school history.

The Broncos set the team uneven bars school record, marking a 49.575 on the apparatus. The previous record was a 49.5, which the Broncos hit twice (2001 vs. Washington, 2014 vs. Iowa). Each scoring gymnast recorded their season or career high, paced by Perkins' 9.975 to lead all scorers. Her 9.975 not only was her career best, but was the best individual bars performance in school history. Perkins now has 14 career wins on the apparatus.

Senior co-captain Kelsey Morris recorded a consensus 9.95 on bars and Krystine Jacobsen marked a 9.90. Maddie Krentz and Diana Mejia rounded out the rotation with a pair of 9.875's.

"The girls have been chasing that bars record for years," said co-head coach Neil Resnick. "They finally got it done tonight and it was absolutely amazing."

Morris and Perkins finished their final home meet in powerful fashion. Along with their top bars scores, they paced the team on vault and floor exercise. Morris recorded a 9.850 on vault and 9.90 on floor exercise, taking home the individual event title on floor. Morris now has six wins on floor exercise this season. Perkins hit a 9.90 on vault and a 9.85 on floor exercise, for her first appearance in the event since Jan. 30 against Utah State. She took the individual vault title for her tenth-career win.

Krystine Jacobsen had a standout night of her own, with her brace of 9.90's on uneven bars and balance beam. The junior from Virginia Beach, VA tied her career-best marks on both events, while taking home the individual title on balance beam. Jacobsen now has four wins on the apparatus this season, ranking fourth all-time in Boise State history.

Boise State posted a 49.225 on floor exercise for the second-best score of the season. Along with Morris and Perkins, Sandra Collantes had a solid 9.85. Krentz competed for the first time in three meets on floor and hit a 9.825, while freshman Lianne Josbacher led off with a 9.80.

Collantes opened on vault with a strong 9.775, and rookie Ann Stockwell recorded a 9.80. Stockwell recorded a 9.80 or higher in all four home meets this year. Mackenzie Bennion anchored the vault rotation with a 9.775.

The Broncos competed well on beam. While Jacobsen paced the team, Molly McFarland recorded her career high 9.80. Paige Urquhart tallied a 9.775, and Mejia (9.750) and Josbacher (9.675) rounded out the scoring.

Boise State will cap the 2015 regular season on the road, competing against conference opponent Southern Utah with California in Cedar City, Utah, Friday (March 13) at 7 p.m.
