Senior Brianna Schwartz (Bonney Lake/Sumner High), the leading SPU all-arounder in all four meets this season, scored 38.075 points to place third. Aditi Kulkarni started the floor rotation with a 9.65 followed by a 9.675 from Jen Lehman and Veron’s 9.80. Schwartz then received a 9.725 and, after a 9.10 by Willis, Bri Steigauf capped the event with a 9.70.

The Falcon gymnasts remain at home to host the University of California at Davis at 7 p.m. Friday.
