WOODLAND, Calif. – Alaska Anchorage freshman M’rcy Matsunami earned selection on three events and junior Emily Petersen grabbed a pair of honors as the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation announced its 2013 Women’s Gymnastics All-Conference Team this week.
    
The All-MPSF team is decided by the top regional qualifying scores (RQS) among the league’s gymnasts.

Matsunami recorded the MPSF’s third-best RQS in the all-around at 38.600, along with ranks of third on vault (9.790) and fourth on floor exercise (9.610). The Omaha, Neb., product has also qualified for the upcoming NCAA Div. I West Region Championships as an individual competitor on vault.

Petersen posted a league-best 9.785 RQS on balance beam – edging MPSF Gymnast of the Year Katie Yamamura of UC Davis by 0.005 – and earned the third-highest RQS on uneven bars at 9.765. The Indianapolis native captured six individual event victories this season.

Meanwhile, sophomore Morgan Cook, from Hot Springs, Ark., earned her second career honor with the league’s sixth-best RQS on balance beam at 9.695.
