The Big Storyline: Air Force’s huge 49.125 on floor left the host team just shy of UC Davis in a season high team performance.
Implications: Air Force is steadily getting better every meet. For reference, its team score increased by one and a half points from its competition on Friday. That’s with leaving some tenths up for grabs on beam. The Falcons tend to fly under the radar when it comes to the USAG competition, but this year they are coming in hot. Air Force should be sitting comfortably in the second spot entering week five. Alaska bested its team score from Friday by quite a bit as well. Some tenths on beam were left on the table, so the Seawolves will look to improve on that event to continue to improve in the coming weeks. UC Davis put together a season high of its own, but Air Force definitely put some pressure on the current top ranked team in the MPSF.
Records: Briona Carswell entered the floor lineup this week with a huge 9.900. Carswell is mostly known for her beam work, but this performance let everyone know that she is a more versatile athlete than she’s been given credit for.
