Sanders finished the meet with a 38.275 total in the all-around to finish second at the Texas Woman's quad meet Sunday aftenoon. She began the day with a 9.600 on beam, besting her collegiate high by more than three tenths. In her second event, Sanders received another collegiate best score of 9.650 to finish seventh on floor. After a 9.325 on vault, Sanders finished off her afternoon with another collegiate best (9.700) on bars to finish seventh.
As a team, the Ladies finished the meet with a 189.950 to finish tied for second with Wisconsin-Stout. The host Pioneers won the meet with a 194.300 total, while Wisconsin-La Crosse placed fourth with a 187.350.
