Gymnastics Hosts Rutgers in Home Opener

PHILADELPHIA - Penn gymnastics will host its first meet of 2010 Saturday at 1 p.m. inside Hutchinson Gymnasium, taking on Rutgers University.

The Quakers opened the season last Sunday with a sixth-place finish at the Lindsey Ferris Invitational at George Washington University. Competing without many of its top performers due to injuries, Penn posted a 179.550 score in the event. Sophomore Katie Graham earned the Red and Blue's highest score of the competition, placing fifth on beam with a career high score of 9.600.

Rutgers will also be looking for its first win of the season, having fallen to New Hampshire and N.C. State in its first two meets this season. They have been led by senior Laura Sevarino who had strong performances in vault (9.725) and floor exercise (9.700) last time out.
