DAVIS, Calif. – Senior Kathleen Mantell earned a career-high all-around score to highlight the Alaska Anchorage gymnastics team’s performance in a quadrangular meet at The Pavilion on Friday night.

San Jose State won the meet in a squeaker over 17th-ranked Arizona, 194.125-194.100, followed by host UC Davis in third with 191.600 and UAA with 187.475.

The Seawolves featured three all-arounders, with Mantell leading the way with 37.825 points. The Northern California native (Antioch, Calif.) also had a career-best 9.525 vault as she scored no lower than 9.375 on any apparatus.

Freshmen Morgan Cook (37.675) and Sariaye Jensen (37.225) produced solids all-arounds as well, while sophomore Emily Petersen matched a UAA season-high with a 9.75 on bars.

Petersen finished in a fifth-place tie on bars for UAA’s best individual placing of the meet, and senior Shakea Sanders tied for sixth with a 9.7 vault. Mantell was fifth of nine all-around competitors.

The Seawolves will finish their road trip Sunday when they compete in a dual meet at longtime rival Sacramento State. That meet starts at 1 p.m. AST and will feature live scoring on the internet. (Check GoSeawolves.com ‘Calendar’ tab for link).
