Tanya Service Is Star of Invitational Gym Meet

Tanya Service of UCLA won two events, including a record-setting performance in the all-around, and tied for first in two others Saturday night to dominate the UCLA/Times Women's Invitational gymnastics meet before a crowd of 6,522 at Pauley Pavilion.

Service, a sophomore from St. Charles, Mo., scored 38.60 points in the all-around to set UCLA and Pauley Pavilion records. She also won the balance beam and tied for first in the floor exercise and the vault.

Sophomore Birgit Schnier, a three-time Austrian national champion from Innsbruck, tied Service for first in the floor excercise and was second in the all-around.

The Bruins' team total of 190.10 points was a UCLA and Pauley Pavilion record. It's also the best score by a women's gymnastics team in the nation this season.
