Jami spent much of the season ranked No. 1 in the nation on the balance beam. Along the way, Jami tied for the Pac-10 title (Carly Janiga, Stanford), won the NCAA West Regional, became an All-American on the beam and won eight event titles on the season. In all, Jami tallied 18 event titles in 2008 and scored 9.9 or better 13 times. On the season, Jami "hit" 53 out of 56 routines (95%) including 14-14 on vault and bars. She earned All-Pac-10 honors in the all-around for the third straight year and competed in every event of every meet, running her total to 41 meets and 164 events in a row.


Jami established herself as an All-American in 2007 making the second team on uneven bars. Her status as a steady, consistent high scorer for the Beavers continued to solidify in 2007 as she has once again performed every event at every meet for the second year in a row and finished the season with the eighth highest RQS in the all-around (39.465) in the nation. Performing as the anchor to the bars and beam lineups for most of the season and at the back half of the vault and floor lineups, Jami attained 17 scores of 9.9 or better and earned 17 individual titles (five all-around, four beam, three bars, three floor and two vault). In addition, Jami raised each of her career-high scores to 9.925 in 2007. In all, Jami "hit" 52 out of 56 routines (93%) in 2007 including going 14-14 on vault and bars. For the second year in a row, Jami was an All-Pac-10 selection in the all-around. Despite being just a sophomore, Jami was selected as a team captain for the 2007 season.


In one word Jami was a `warrior' in 2006. Despite nagging heel and ankle injuries, Jami performed every event in every meet in 2006 and capped the regular season off by earning a share of the Pac-10 Freshman of the Year award. Although not 100% Jami's managed to put forth an effort that resulted in all but one of her scores counting toward the team score in 2006. Jami put together one of the best all-around performances (39.525) in Oregon State history at the Salbasgeon Suites Invitational in March, including scoring three 9.90s or better in the Beavers' victory. At the conclusion of the season, Jami's teammates chose her as the team's Most Valuable Gymnast and she also earned Co-Female Newcomer of the Year at OSU's annual Bennys Awards banquet.
