Gym Devils picked seventh in Pac-12 Coaches Poll

December 22, 2011

In a vote of the league's coaches, the Arizona State women's gymnastics team was picked to finish in a tie for seventh place in the 2012 Pac-12 preseason coaches' poll.

The Sun Devils received 11 points overall to tie for seventh place with California. UCLA took the top spot in the coaches' poll with 48 total points including six first-place votes. Also receiving first-place votes was Pac-12 newcomer Utah, which received two and is picked to finish second.

The Sun Devils return NCAA regional qualifiers senior Beate Jones and senior Madison Snowden along with fielding a healthy roster. ASU lost several-dozen line-up spots last season due to a litany of ill-timed injuries. The Sun Devils also boast a talented freshmen class, which looks to make an immediate impact at the start of the season.

Arizona State opens the 2012 season at home hosting UC Davis on Friday, Jan. 6 at Wells Fargo Arena with the meet starting at 7 p.m. PT.
