🤸‍♂️ Another weekend of season-highs
⛳️ Record-setting day
⚔️ And much, much more!


🔼 Continuing To Climb. The gymnastics squad continues to improve this season as they got the 196.400-196.175 win over UC Davis on Friday. There were multiple season-highs for the Spartans. They scored a season-high 49.000 on vault and bars with Madison Kirsch and Sophia Konieczny taking the event titles. Lauren Macpherson led the beam team to a season-best 49.050, and she took home the title with a 9.925 score. Jada Mazury won the floor title with a 9.925 score. This was the first meet of the season where the Spartans scored a 49.000 or better on all four events.

🔼  Walk It Off. The Spartan softball team got their first win of the season on Sunday, thanks to a walk-off single in the seventh inning. They beat Tennessee State 3-2 at the NorCal Kickoff. Shay McDowell hit two RBI singles, including the walk-off with two outs. Lacie Ham threw a complete game and struck out three in her first win of the season. They’ll be back in action on Friday as they host Silicon Valley I.

🔼 Aquatic Aces. The women’s water polo team had a successful weekend at the ASU Invitational, picking up wins over UC Santa Barbara, Ottowa, and Marist. Paxtyn Reihs had 100% shooting accuracy and four goals in the win over Ottowa. Sinia Plotz had a hat trick in the win over Marist.

🔼 Fairway Finale. The men’s golf team had an exciting final day at the Amer Ari Intercollegiate on Saturday. Carl Corpus finished second-place in a strong field, he shot a final round of 64 (-8). The Spartans shot 21-under par in the final round, which was the lowest below par score the Spartans have ever shot in an 18-hole round. The team finished tied for 12th-place.
