Cami Guyer, a 2011 Mount Si graduate and freshman at San Jose State University, tied for 10th in the balance beam (9.700) at a gymnastics tri-meet Friday, March 9, at the University of Washington.

The host and No. 24 Huskies finished first (196.350), Central Michigan University second (195.300) followed by San Jose State (194.425).

The balance beam was Guyer’s only event that counted in team standings, but she also took part in exhibition vault and uneven parallel bars. San Jose Coach Wayne Wright said Guyer “has fit in well” with the team and said she has the skills to be an all-around (all four events) gymnast for the Spartans in the future.

“I have to improve in consistency and keeping calm,” said Guyer, who mentioned that sometimes there is more pressure on her during the exhibition events than the beam because she is trying to impress the coaches for a starting spot in additional events.

Guyer and her Spartan teammates, 10-6, have a chance to come back to Seattle on Saturday, April 7, when the University of Washington hosts one of the regionals. Before that, San Jose will compete at the WAC Championships on Saturday, March 24.
