Hannah Redmon Ends a Storybook 2010 Season at NCAA Gymnastics Semifinal

GAINESVILLE, Fla. - Boise State gymnast Hannah Redmon closed out her 2010 season on Thursday (April 22) in the NCAA Women's Gymnastics National Championship Semifinal 1. Redmon, a junior, competed as an individual competitor on vault and floor exercise on Thursday at the Stephen C. O'Connell Center on the University of Florida Campus.

The Sparks, Nev., native opened her first-career trip to the NCAA Championships on floor exercise where she performed beautifully, scoring a 9.825 and tying for 21st-place. Her floor score ties the Boise State school record for top performance on floor at an NCAA National meet, joining Johnna Evans (1998).

She then moved on to vault in the very next rotation, where she was awarded a 9.80 for an excellent performance, tying her for 27th-place overall. Her effort on vault ties her for third in the all-time NCAA performances on vault by a Bronco (tying Lindsay Ward, 2004).  

Although she had rock-solid performances on both events, Redmon failed to qualify for the individual event finals on Saturday, April 24. The top-four individual competitors on each event from each of the two semifinals advance to the finals.

Redmon had a very successful junior season, becoming only the fifth Bronco, first-ever as an event specialist, to advance to the NCAA Championships. This season, Redmon has earned seven vault titles, eight floor titles, five uneven bars titles and one all-around title, totaling to 21 individual event wins in Boise State's 11 meets this season. Redmon set a new career-best on vault of 9.975 at the NCAA Regional on April 10, advancing her to the NCAA Championships. Her score earned her the new school record for best score on vault at an NCAA Regional, while her 9.90 effort on floor in the meet tied her for first on the all-time best regional scores on floor.

Redmon earned her second career Western Athletic Conference title on floor this season, adding to her title from 2008, as well as, a vault title and an all-around title to her resume'. Individually she has also worked her way up in the Boise State record books to the No. 2 spot in season wins on vault with eight as well as No. 3 in career wins with 16. Her 9.975 vault at the regional meet earned her the third best vault score in school history. Redmon also moved up to the No. 5 spot in season wins on bars (5) as well as No. 8 in career wins on the event (6). Setting a new career-best of 9.925 on Feb. 12, 2010, Redmon helped improve her wins to eight just this season, setting a new school best for wins in a season on floor. She also moved up to No. 2 on the career floor wins chart with 16.

Redmon finished the season with a 9.975 high score on vault, a 9.90 on bars, a 9.675 on beam, a 9.925 on floor and a 39.225 in the all-around.

Closing out her junior season with a bang, Redmon looks to become one of the most decorated gymnasts ever at Boise State by the completion of her senior season in 2011. She will return with a solid class of six seniors for her final season at Boise State.
