Gymnastics season comes to close as Campos, Williams compete at
South Central Regional
LINCOLN, NE-For the fourth time in her illustrious career, Northern
Illinois University women's gymnast Kristina Campos saw her season
come to a close at a place that only a handful of collegiate competitors
ever get a chance to visit. Campos and teammate Ashlee Williams
closed out their 2005 campaign at the NCAA South Central Regional
Saturday (Apr. 9) at the Bob Devaney Sports Center in Lincoln, NE.
Campos (Gladstone, MO / Oak Park) earned a 12th-place finish in
the all-around competition after collecting a 38.025 over four events.
Williams (Liberty, MO / Senior)---who qualified as an event specialist
on the uneven parallel bars, placed in a tie for 29th in the final
standings with a 9.700 routine. It was the first career trip to
the NCAA Regional meet for the First Team All-Mid-American Conference
Just ahead of Williams in the bars standings was Campos who put
up a 9.725 to tie for 27th. The senior---who is now one of only
two Huskie gymnasts to ever make four consecutive appearances at
an NCAA Regional along with Martha Unger (1987-88, 1989-90)---also
placed in the top-15 in the floor exercise with a 9.800. She added
a 36th-place 9.375 on the balance beam and a 9.125 that was good
enough for 38th on the vault to round out her night.
