After Perfect Ending On Senior Night, Cristal Isa Is Named Pac-12 SOTW
SALT LAKE CITY – Cristal Isa had a perfect ending on Senior Night, earning a 10 on her final beam routine in the Huntsman Center and now Pac-12 Specialist of the Week honors as well.
The out-going senior brought the house down last Friday against Arizona as the team honored Isa, Abby Brenner, and Jillian Hoffman on stellar Red Rock careers one last time at home.
Isa has been an integral part of Utah gymnastics the past five years as an excellent bar and beam worker. This is the second time Isa has received two perfect 10’s on her beam routine in her career with her first happening last season. Isa now has a total of five perfect 10’s in her career.
