The Big Storyline: After an impressive week one showing, Michigan outdid itself in defeating Arizona State, once again notching the nation’s top score to date. Natalie Wojcik led the way for the Wolverines with a pair of near-perfect 9.975s and a quartet of individual titles on the night. The Sun Devils also impressed in their delayed season opener, with freshman Alex Theodorou earning a 9.900 on her first college vault.
Implications: Michigan put up another stellar total that will continue to keep them at the forefront of national title conversations, while Arizona State’s score should see the Sun Devils back in the top 15 in next week’s rankings.
Records: The Sun Devils’ team score is their top season-opening total in program history. The Wolverines closed the meet with a school record total of 49.700. Naomi Morrison’s vault and floor tiles were new career high’s for her, as was her 39.575 in the all around.
Current Rankings: Arizona State at No. 1 Michigan
Why You Should Clear Space on Your DVR: We get two exciting storylines in this meet: Arizona State’s season debut after missing week one due to COVID protocols and the Collegiate Challenge cancelation, and Michigan continuing its campaign to stay atop the rankings.
You Can Fast Forward, but not Through This: Arizona State leads the all-time series versus the Wolverines 7-6; this is Michigan’s chance to even the score. Don’t miss the first rotation. Michigan is No. 1 on vault and has a litany of stellar Yurchenko 1.5s. For the Sun Devils, this is our first look at highly regarded freshman Alex Theodorou.
