BERKELEY – Alicia Asturias claimed three event titles in the season opener for No. 22 Cal women’s gymnastics to earn California Muscle Milk Student-Athlete of the Week honors.
The senior captain and all-around veteran continued her senior season right where her junior season left off – as a rock solid competitor for the Golden Bears. Among the 120 routines displayed at the NorCal Meet in Sacramento, Asturias stole the show and turned in four hit routines to claim the top all-around spot (out of five competitors) with a 39.175.
She finished the afternoon with three event titles on beam, floor and all-around and helped lead No. 22 Cal to a near-upset of No. 9 Stanford and Cal’s second-highest team score in a season opener in program history with a 194.650.
Asturias’ 9.85 on beam was a new career high, topping her previous best of 9.80 set last season vs. Nebraska.
