ST. CHARLES, Mo. – Freshman Isabelle Fox won the all-around for the third time in as many meets Friday to help the Alaska Anchorage gymnastics team finish second in a gymnastics tri-meet at Hyland Arena.
UAA scored 188.300 points to finish behind host Lindenwood (194.500) and defeat Centenary (184.125) as sophomore Mackenzie Miller placed runner-up in the all-around with a career-high 38.050.
“I continue to be impressed by our lowerclassmen,” said UAA head coach Tanya Ho, whose team has seen two of its three seniors sidelined by injury thus far. “Fox and Mack hit 4-for-4 tonight, which was good enough to sweep the top two all-around spots. Michaela Phillips added bars for the first time and Isabella (Scalapino) really came through, anchoring the vault lineup in her first college meet.”
Lindenwood dominated by taking at least the top three spots on all four events, with Scalapino placing fourth on vault with her 9.625. Miller and Fox led the way for UAA on bars with a 9.675 and a 9.65, respectively, while Fox placed fifth overall on beam with a 9.625.
Junior Kaylin Mancari scored a 9.7 to pace the Seawolves on floor exercise, along with a 9.575 from Fox.
Fox, from Houston, Texas, scored 38.425 all-around to break the 38-point barrier for the third time since the season began Jan. 12.
The Seawolves (3-1) complete their quick Midwest road trip with a dual meet Sunday (11 a.m. AST) at Illinois State in Normal, Ill. Check the GoSeawolves.com gymnastics schedule page for the direct video link.
