UCLA Wins Pac-10 Gymnastics Title

<i> Associated Press </i>

Oregon State’s Joy Selig won the individual title, but UCLA set an NCAA record Saturday night to win the 1989 Pacific 10 Conference gymnastics championships.

The Bruins, led by Tanya Service and Kim Hamilton, who finished second and third behind Selig in the all-around competition, scored 195.20 points.

Led by Selig, who earned the individual crown by winning the uneven parallel bars, balance beam and floor exercise, the Beavers finished second with 193.65 points.

Arizona State was third with 191.10, points, Arizona fourth with 190.00, Washington fifth with 188.70, followed by Stanford at 186.55 and California with 185.00.


“The score was great, but I really thought 195 was a little high,” UCLA Coach Jerry Tomlinson said. “Our goal coming into the meet was not the score or finish, but to be a perfect 24 for 24 on our routines. We were 23 for 24, so I’m pleased with that.”

Arizona’s Jim Gault was named Pac-10 coach of the year, while Service was named conference gymnast of the year.
