Co-national champs on floor!

The Pioneers ended the 2009 USA Gymnastics Collegiate National Championships on a high note as seniors Amie Boles and Tonya Pipkorn posted matching scores of 9.850 to share the national championship on floor exercise!

What a way for Amie and Tonya to end their collegiate careers! They walked off the competition floor for the last time as national champions. Everybody is crazy happy for them right now!

Freshman Rashonda Cannie tied for fourth in the bars finals with a score of 9.700.

Here is a complete breakdown of the TWU results on both bars and floor (with place listed in parentheses):

Rashonda Cannie, 9.700 (T-4th)
Kristie Costa, 9.625 (T-8th)

Amie Boles, 9.850 (T-1st)
Tonya Pipkorn, 9.850 (T-1st)
Rashonda Cannie, 9.775 (7th)

That's all for now. I'll have more reaction (from both coaches and gymnasts) up here later tonight.
