Devaty also won her third uneven parallel bars title (sharing this years honor with Middleburg Heights Midpark senior Ann Marie Kassouf), second floor exercise crown and finished second in the vault behind Madison senior Rickee Wirtzberger. Lakewoods Lori Hass was the only other three-time all around champ, winning titles in 1973, 74 and 75.
