At 6pm tonight, the Mountain Pacific Sports Foundation (MPSF) Conference Championships kick off at Seattle Pacific University (SPU). The SPU Falcons women’s gymnastics team will be competing with UC Davis, the Air Force Academy, and the University of Alaska Anchorage for the MPSF title.
The action takes place at SPU’s Royal Brougham Pavilion at the corner of 3rd Ave W and W Nickerson.
If you like gymnastics or have future gymnasts in your household, this event is sure to please – and it’s easy on the wallet too, with $8 Adult admission and $5 students/senior admission. Get a group of 15 or more together, and it’s just $3 apiece.
How does the SPU team stack up? Four different Falcons had event wins in meets this year: Shannon Escarra, Stephanie Wagner, Corrine Wise and Kenley Memmel; and SPU has three 38-point all-arounders (Sydney Clark, Shannon Escarra, Stephanie Wagner) for the first season since 2007. Two Falcons got All-America acclaim at the 2012 USAG championships, with Stephanie Wagner tying for fifth on the beam at Nationals.
Just last weekend at UW, the Falcons racked up their year’s top score in the final regular-season schedule – the team’s 193.150 points tied for the sixth-highest in school history. The 5th ranked USAG team is ready for tonight’s challenge – check it out and cheer them on!
