    Kalamazoo, Mich.- The University of Illinois at Chicago women's gymnastics team seems to be peaking at just the right time.

    Cacciatore took first place on the vault with a 9.9, tying her season-high, while placing third on the bars with a 9.8. Cacciatore also tied for second on the floor with a 9.875.

    Meunier took the uneven bars title withj a 9.850, tying her season-best in the event in the process. O'Neil followed in second with a 9.825, a 2004 best for the junior.

    Jessie Jaworowicz chipped in with a team-leading 9.775 on the balance beam, taking third place.

    Western Michigan's highlight of the day came on the floor, where sophomore Cherisse Marier earned a perfect 10 from the first judge in the event. The second judge awarded a 9.95, giving her a first-place score of 9.975.
