Cardinal gymnasts honored


For the 2009-2010 season, seven Stanford gymnasts were named to the Scholastic All-America team by the National Association of Collegiate Coaches/Women. The seven consisted of three seniors–Carly Janiga (fourth honor), Blair Ryland (second honor) and Tenaya West (second honor). Shelley Alexander and Danielle Ikoma, two juniors, were selected for the first time while sophomores Nicole Pechanec and Jenny Peter also received the honor.

For Janiga, this marks the end of an illustrious career as a stellar student athlete. Her collegiate career consists of nine All-American honors, five Pac-10 individual titles, three NCAA Super Six team finals appearances and an NCAA individual championship. She also earned the Pac-10 Scholar Athlete award.

Stanford has been represented by 47 gymnasts, earning 90 honors in total, on the Scholastic All-American team.
