The USAG Dismount: Week 2

The USAG started off decimated this year, with Yale, Penn, West Chester, Brown, Southern Connecticut and Cornell opting out of the 2021 season, the Seattle Pacific program being cut earlier in the year and Bridgeport both not taking part in the season and unsure about its survival next year.

Nevertheless, season was underway this week, and Lindenwood started off with a bang and a record performance right out of the gates. The Lions defeated SEMO and Texas Woman’s with their highest season-opening team score in program history. Meanwhile, Air Force made its 2021 debut with a new coaching staff.

Turon sealed Lindenwood’s win over two MIC rivals with a stuck Yurchenko Arabian and a career high-tying 9.850. The senior missed the 2020 season with injury, so returning with both a team win and an individual title is extra sweet. 

Unusual Skill of the Week

Grace Bardes (UB) 9.500

Bardes’ eponymous skill, a piked Deltchev, isn’t new, but it is beautiful and unusual
