TEMPE, Ariz. - No. 20 Arizona State gymnastics will return a strong group of Gym Devils on the uneven bars to reach the next level in the 2019 season.

The season high on bars in 2018 was 49.325 against California, which was the highest total Arizona State has scored since 2006. In that meet, Cairo Leonard-Baker earned a team-best and career-high 9.950. She also scored that career best against Washington.

Two Gym Devils earned 9.900s in 2018. Senior Anne Kuhm scored a 9.900 against Washington. Junior Ashley Szafranski also earned that total twice last season, first against Minnesota and second in the NCAA regionals.

Morgan Wilson is another strong returner on bars. She scored a 9.825 twice last year, against Washington and Minnesota. She capped off 2018 by earning a 9.800 at NCAA regionals.

Four additional Sun Devils contributed on uneven bars in 2018. Morgan Hart earned a 9.850 against California, which was a career high, in addition to a 9.825 and two 9.800s. The other two earned season highs of 9.775 last year: Justine Callis and Kaitlyn Szafranski.

One freshman who shows promise on bars is Jasmine Gutierrez. At the 2016 Level 9 Western Championships, she took first place. She also won silver at the 2018 Nashville Lights.
