No. 8 Arkansas wins tri-meet

SEATTLE, Wash. – No. 8 Arkansas posted a season-high road score and Seattle native Sarah Nagashima, competing in her hometown, won the all-around title as the Razorback gymnastics team won a tri-meet at Washington on Friday.

Arkansas won with a total of 196.075, followed by Washington with 194.10 and Seattle Pacific with 188.275.

"We fought hard tonight," co-head coach Mark Cook said. "We had our best score on the road this year and we even had the opportunity to probably score a little higher. I’m very pleased with the girls – their spirit and attitude. They did a good job."

Magee won the beam title (9.925) and Pisani the vault title (9.875), and they tied for the floor title (9.90). Nagashima won the first all-around title of her career with a 39.175. She had a 9.75 on vault, a 9.775 on bars, 9.85 on beam and 9.80 on floor.

"That’s great for her," Cook said. "It’s awesome to come home and do that. She has a lot of fire."

Nagashima, from Seattle, Bartlett, from Tualatin, Ore., and Magee, from Eugene, Ore., performed in front of several friends and family members, which limited Washington’s home advantage.

"It was nice seeing that we had a lot of fans in the stands," Cook said. "They were as loud as the Washington fans."

Arkansas stays on the road next week, traveling to Minnesota for a 7 p.m. meet on Saturday before returning home for two straight.
