Stanford women's gymnast Larissa Fontaine was named to the Pac-10 All-Conference team in the all-around, vault and bars.

Fontaine, who has had an illustrious four years at Stanford, finished out her collegiate career with an outstanding senior year. Ranked as the top all-around gymnast in the nation for three consecutive weeks, Fontaine finished the season ranked third. Twice named the Pac-10 Gymnast of the Week, she led the team in titles won in 2000 with 24, including ten won in the meets against California and Brigham Young. During the regular season, Fontaine placed no lower than third on the vault, including seven first-place finishes in nine meets. She took first place in five of the seven meets in which she competed in the all-around competition, including against BYU, when she scored a new school record 39.825. At that same meet, she recorded a perfect 10 on the floor, the first 10 of her career.

Fontaine was also named First-Team Pac-10 All-Academic along with teammate and fellow senior Sarah Harding. Perhaps one of the most prolific Carinal performers on the floor, Harding finished second on the floor at four meets, including a second place finish at the Arizona State Quadrangular. Her best score of the 2000 season came against BYU, when she scored a 9.95. Harding took fourth place on the floor at the NCAA Regional Championships with a score of 9.9. Sophomore Katy Herbert was tabbed an honorable mention All-Academic. Herbert will represent the Cardinal in the 2000 NCAA Championships on the balance beam, which she has won two years in a row at the NCAA Regional Championships.
