Musser Earns All-America Status
April 20, 2012
DULUTH, Ga. - Penn State women's gymnastics junior Sharaya Musser (Colorado Springs, Colo.) earned NACGC/W All-America status at the NCAA Championships on Friday, April 20. Musser now has six NACGC/W All-America honors for her career.
Musser secured Second Team All-America status on beam and floor to bring her career honors to six. Musser was awarded First Team All-America honors on vault and in the all-around, as well as Second Team All-America laurels on beam and floor in 2010 as a freshman.
NACGC/W All-America status is determined by Friday's scoring in both the first and second sessions of the NCAA Championships. First Team is determined by first to fourth place on each individual event, while Second Team is awarded for fifth through eighth places including ties in each session.
Competing with top-ranked Florida who finished in second place in the team competition with a 197.650 to advance to the Super Six on Saturday, Musser opened the second session of the championships on vault posting a 9.700. After a bye in the second rotation Musser and the Gators moved on to the uneven bars where she posted a 9.850.
In the third rotation, Musser finished sixth with a 9.900 on balance beam. After a final bye in the fourth rotation, she scored a 9.850 on floor, which was good enough for eighth place.
