April 4, 2004
Tucson, Ariz.- The UIC women's gymnastics team wrapped up a solid 2004 campaign on Saturday night, earning a 193.875 to place sixth in the NCAA South Central Regional Championship at the University of Arizona's McKale Center.
UIC was led by Alyson Cacciatore, who led the Flames in three categories, including a breathtaking uneven bars performance that scored the junior a fifth-place score of 9.925.
Cacciatore also placed 13th in the all-around with a 38.675 and tied teammate Veronique Meunier for 15th on vault with a 9.825.
Meunier was solid as well, placing 17th in the all-around with a 37.950.
Jackie Jaworowicz capped off a stellar campaign by leading the Flames on balance beam, taking 19th with a 9.775, and floor exercise, taking 14th with another 9.775.
Utah won the meet with a 197.625, followed by Florida's 197.050. Both of those teams advance to the NCAA National Championships as the top two finishers of the regional.
The Flames ended a remarkable season that saw the team bounce back from a brutal early schedule to earn their third straight Midwest Independent Conference Championship and their third consecutive South Central Regional berth.
