It’s quint meet time!
With four EAGL teams here (we’re just missing the two North Carolina teams), today will be a sneak preview of how these teams stack up. Plus, Maryland will be here as well and should be contending for the top spot.
For New Hampshire and George Washington, this will be a huge opportunity to help secure their spots at regionals. New Hampshire is currently counting a high 194 road score towards its NQS, and this will be its last opportunity to drop it as the Wildcats will be at home next week. George Washington is sitting at No. 36, the last regionals spot, and is in danger of being passed by some lower ranked teams. It will want to record a good score here to stay in contention.
Vault: UNH, Bars: Pitt, Beam: Maryland, Floor: GW, Bye: Towson
Apparently they are doing alumni recognition right now, so I don’t think we’re going to start on time.
Live scoring is not available, so I’ll update you on scores whenever I can.
My livestream is now gone, so hopefully it will be back before the first vault.
It was back for 10 seconds and went out again. So this is going to be fun..
Ok, here we go (I think)
Unknown person from Maryland doing well on beam. Ends with stuck landing.
And it’s gone again…
