If Jill Andrews, UCLA All-American gymnast, tries to tell you she is over the hill--as she has sometimes been heard to say--don't believe her. A 21-year-old senior, Andrews is a bit long in the tooth for a gymnast, especially when you consider that she has been at it for 12 years and that Mary Lou Retton retired at 16 after winning the all-around title at the 1984 Olympics. Yet Andrews is a long way from being washed up.

The consensus about UCLA gymnast Jill Andrews is that she does not possess exceptional talent. How then did the 5-foot-2 senior win the all-around competition in nine of the 11 meets she competed in this season to become the Pacific 10 Conference's gymnast of the year? How, during this month's NCAA West Regional, did she win the vault and beam events, tie for first in the floor exercise and win the all-around competition by scoring a career-best 39.325 points--with a sore elbow and a cold, yet?

From the beginning of the meet, there was pressure on Jill Andrews. With two of UCLA's three All-American gymnasts injured, Andrews said she felt responsible for carrying her team in the NCAA West Regional Saturday night at the John Wooden Center. So while her teammates chatted and laughed as they waited to perform, Andrews, the only senior, stood back. She paced, stretched and stared at the gym floor, mentally rehearsing her routines.

Given the competition, Saturday night's UCLA-Los Angeles Times Women's Gymnastics Invitational went pretty much as expected. The Bruins, ranked seventh in the nation, won with a meet-record score of 191.45. And their star gymnast, Jill Andrews, with one of the strongest performances of her career before 4,358 at Pauley Pavilion, added another individual all-around title to her resume. The only legitimate competitor in the four-team meet, No. 12 Cal State Fullerton, finished second at 187.95. No.
