Stanford women turn in solid home gymnastics performance


Kyla Bryant scored a career-high 9.925 to win on beam but the injury-plagued 25th-ranked Stanford women’s gymnastics team fell to visiting No. 11 Washington, 196.425-194.800, in a Pac-12 Conference meet Monday night at Maples Pavilion.

Bryant was second on floor with a score of 9.875, third on vault and second all-around for the Cardinal (3-8, 0-4), which hosts California at 3 p.m. Sunday.

Washington, coming off wins against Cal and UCLA, improved to 3-0 in Pac-12 play and 5-1 overall.

Competing without several returnees, Stanford had little margin for error against the GymDawgs. The Cardinal got a decent start on vault, posting 48.900, struggled on bars, then closed strong on beam (49.000) and floor (48.500).

Junior Taylor Lawson tied for third on bars (9.825) and fifth on beam (9.800), while sophomore Morgan Hoang tied for fifth on vault (9.775) and eighth on beam (9.775).

Sophomore Wesley Stephenson tied for second on beam (9.825), while sophomore Madison Brunette, a Seattle native, tied for fifth on vault (9.775).
