    Seattle, Wash.- The University of Illinois at Chicago women's gymnastics team put up another valiant effort on the road, but this time the Flames could only muster a fourth-place finish against No. 6 Utah, No. 12 Washington and Iowa in front of 1,309 fans at Bank of America Arena on Friday night.

    UIC's 195.175 team score was its second-highest total of the season. The Utes led the field with a 197.950, while the host Huskies followed in second with a 197.550. The Hawkeyes bested the Flames for the second time in three weeks, earning a 196.900 to push past UIC for third.

    The Flames (4-12) were paced by Alyson Cacciatore, who took seventh in a crowded all-around field with an overall score of 39.125. Cacciatore led UIC on the uneven bars with a 9.875, tying her season-high.

    UIC also received a strong effort from Veronique Meunier, who led all Flames competitors with a season-high 9.9 on vault and a 9.825 on floor exercise.

    Jessie Jaworowicz led UIC on the balance beam with a career-best 9.825.

    Friday's meet marked the second straight contest that the Flames were without all-arounder Jackie Jaworowicz, who was unable to compete due to injury.

    UIC turned in a season-high team score on bars (49.075), marking the second-straight week the Flames turned in a 2004 best in the event.

    The Flames are back in action next Saturday, March 13th as they travel to Champaign, Ill., to defend their Illinois Classic title at Huff Hall beginning at 2 p.m.
