UC Davis senior team co-captain Michelle Ho won her second consecutive Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Gymnast of the Week award, this time sharing the honor with Air Force junior Jen Larsen, it was announced by the conference office late Tuesday night. This is the sixth such award for the Los Altos native in her career.
Ho scored two event victories in Friday's home dual with California, posting a 9.850 on uneven bars and a 9.925 on floor exercise. That 9.925 mark was the highest in school history since Tiffany Chan tied the school record of 9.950 at the 2004 MPSF Championships. The only other Aggies to hit such a score are Lynn Schwaebe and Flora Bare, both of whom did it in 2001.
Additionally, Ho's score is the highest on any event by any MPSF member since 2005, when Alaska Anchorage's Dominique Ingram and Sacramento State's Stephanie Aeder each went 9.950, also on floor.
Ho capped a strong team performance on floor in Friday's meet. The Aggies compiled a 49.100 overall, the highest since that 2004 conference championship and the first 49-point effort on any apparatus since March 2010.
UC Davis returns to action at Washington in a quad meet with Cal and UIC on Friday night.
