Feb. 18, 2004
WOODLAND, Calif. - Air Force gymnast Jessa Liegl was named Co-Gymnast of the Week by the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation for the week of Feb. 9, the league office announced today (Feb. 18). This is Liegl's first weekly honor from the MPSF.
Liegl's honor comes from a stellar performance at the University of Rhode Island on Sunday, Feb. 8. The native of Lincoln, Neb., won the vault and floor exercise, with matching scores of 9.825. She also won the uneven bars with a score of 9.850 and finished second on the balance beam with a mark of 9.850. The combination led to a first-place finish in the all-around with a career-best score of 39.350. The all-around total is just .050 off of the Academy record of 39.400.
She shared the conference's weekly honor with freshman Dominique Ingram of Alaska Anchorage.
Up next for Liegl and the Falcons is a trip to Tempe, Ariz., for a tri-meet with Arizona State and Utah, on Friday, Feb. 20.
