While it wasn’t quite as packed a weekend as we normally see at this point in NCAA gymnastics, there was still plenty of drama, excitement and great gymnastics to fill our time. From big scores to mysterious absences to upset wins, catch up on all you might have missed in this week’s Dismount.
Kathy Johnson Clarke and Bart Conner, LSU at Auburn broadcast
Johnson-Clarke and Conner gave a moving tribute to Dianne Durham during the LSU at Auburn broadcast. Both broke down in tears speaking about Durham’s contributions to gymnastics. Johnson-Clarke pointed out that it’s long past time for Durham to be in the Hall of Fame and urged USAG to make it happen.
Most Powerful Message
Have you watched this yet? You need to. It speaks for itself. Coach Larissa Libby noted it was written and narrated by the team. Enough.
Stick of the Week
Alexia Burch (Utah)
Utah stuck a lot of vaults on Saturday, and Burch was a favorite. She made that landing look so casual. What, like a stuck Yurchenko 1.5 is hard?
Routine of the Week
Emily Muhlenhaupt (Boise State)
We just can’t get enough of this routine. Muhlenhaupt knocks it out of the park every week, and this time she was rewarded with a career high-tying 9.975. She’s bound to get that 10 eventually, right?
Underrated Routine of the Week
Victoria Henry (Ball State)
Ball State freshman Victoria Henry debuted an impressive Yurchenko 1.5 this weekend, winning the vault title with a 9.925 and becoming the first gymnast in the MAC to earn a 9.9-plus on the event this season.
Allison Zuhlke (Towson)
We can’t get enough of this front handspring Tsuk tuck half from the Towson freshman. It may be a little messy, but that doesn’t stop it from being so dang unique!
Kathryn Thaler (Nebraska)
Watch and enjoy. This may just be our favorite fall of the year—and there’s been some good ones.
