March 13, 2011

Complete Results

FULLERTON, CA - Cal State Fullerton senior Alaina Baker finished tied for third on floor and ended up third overall in the all-around Sunday afternoon, helping lift the host Titans to a season-high 191.050 in a loss to No. 8 UCLA at Titan Gym.

It marked the third consecutive meet above the 190 mark for Fullerton, which topped its previous high of 190.700 set at Utah State on March 4. UCLA won the meet with a 197.050, the second time the Bruins have reached the 197 mark and four-tenths shy of their season best of 197.475 set against NC State earlier in the year.

Baker scored a 9.80 on floor to match Niki Tom's performance and break up a clean sweep of the events by UCLA. Her 38.950 was a season high by a tenth of a point as she finished third in the all-around behind the Bruins' Elyse Hopfner-Hibbs (39.500) and Brittani McCullough (39.225). Fullerton senior Shelly Cooper posted her second-best all-around score of the season - and her best in front of the home crowd in 2011 - with a 38.425 to finish fourth.

The Bruins led wire-to-wire, topping 49 points in all four events, including a high of 49.575 on vault en route to their final score. Hopfner-Hibbs took home individual titles on vault (9.95) and beam (9.925), Samantha Peszek won bars with a 9.90, and McCullough finished first on floor (9.925).

As a team, Fullerton finished with season-high's on beam (47.850) and floor (48.175) en route to its season-high total. Baker was the Titans' highest finisher on vault (6th, 9.75) and bars (7th, 9.725) to go along with her floor finish while Leah Housman posted a season-high 9.70 on beam to finish sixth.

Cal State Fullerton now turns its attention to the Western Athletic Conference Championships hosted by San Jose State on Saturday (March 19) at 6 p.m. at the Event Center. The Titans are looking to build off a fifth-place finish at last year's event at Titan Gym when they scored a 193.175.
