Although they posted a strong finish of 25-3 over all and 11-0 in the Big Ten, two meets stood out in the minds of the com- petitors as they finished only 7th in the nation after high hopes. The season high point came fairly early, upon defeating Georgia at home. The win was the first time the Wolverines had conquered Georgia in a dual meet in Michigan history. " Following the meet, everyone was crying. We ' ve come so close so many times, but this time the team showed we had the ability to do it, " said senior co-captain Janessa Grieco, " Georgia is the team we love to hate. " Joy After beating rival Georgia, the women ' s gymnastics team captures the 2002 Big Ten Title. In addition to capturing the Big Ten Cham- pionship, the team competed in the NCAA Tournament. However, they did not post as well of a showing as they had hoped the Wol- verines failed to advance to the second day of national competition. " Sitting in the stands watching on the second day was hard because we felt we should have been out there, " said Junior Elise Ray. " Nationals is like the final hurrah of the seasons. All meets up to that point are basically prac- tice. " While competing at nationals, Ray captured the national title for the beam for her first time in her career. " Winning felt really good. The beam is one event I struggle most at. That day I had a lot of confidence and pulled through, " she said. Ray ended the season ranked second in the nation by Gymlnfo just behind teammate Calli Ryals, who finished No. 1 for national Ail-Around Gymnast. In addition to Ray ' s Michigan accomplishments, she was a member of the 2000 Olympic Gymnastics Team. According to head coach Beverly Plocki, the key gymnasts were Ray as the MVP high scorer in addition to strong com- petitors Grieco, Shannon MacKenzie, and Jody Rosenberg. Plocki said, " They really gave 100 percent every time. You don ' t win championships from a few high scores; it ' s the depth that produces wins. " SPORTS 151
