Bryan completes 2014 campaign at Regionals
Competing in her hometown, the Seawolf sophomore scored a 9.675 on uneven bars and a 9.45 on vault, but suffered a pair of falls on balance beam to fall out of range of the 38-point plateau. The Roosevelt High School product finished with a 9.4 on floor exercise.
“This was a high-caliber meet, so even though Stefany didn’t produce her best scores today, it was still an invaluable experience for her,” said UAA head coach Paul Stoklos. “She stepped into a leadership role this year and should be part of a strong core for us with everyone returning next year.”
Bryan was just the 13th Seawolf ever to qualify for the regional meet.
Fourth-ranked Alabama won Saturday’s team competition with 197.550 points, while Nebraska’s Emily Wong won the all-around title with a 39.625 total.
The Seawolves are set to return all 11 letterwinners – plus redshirts Sariaye Jensen, Kayli Davies and Molly Reiter – when they begin competition in the brand-new Alaska Airlines Center in 2015.
