Missouri at Kentucky
|Full Results||Kentucky: 197.450||Missouri: 196.875|
|VT: Worley 9.925||UB: Worley 9.950||BB: Worley, Hu, Schreiber, 9.900||FX: Worley 9.975||AA: Worley 39.750|
The Big Storyline: Raena Worley turned in yet another lights-out performance to lead the Wildcats to their first 197-plus score of the season.
Implications: Kentucky and Missouri have been neck and neck this season, and this meet only tightened that gap. The Tigers dropped from 10th to 11th nationally while Kentucky moved up to 12th. The two teams are separated by just a quarter tenth.
Records: Worley set a new career high on floor and tied her career high in the all-around.
Current Rankings: No. 10 Missouri at No. 12 Kentucky
Why You Should Clear Space on Your DVR: The Tigers and the Wildcats have both exceeded expectations so far this season, earning decisive wins on the road and at home. The last time these teams met in a dual meet, Kentucky took the win 195.775 to Missouri’s 195.350; so far this season, neither team has posted a score under 196.275. These are two teams on the rise looking to shake up the SEC pecking order, but they’ll have to get through each other first.
You Can Fast Forward, but not Through This: Raena Worley has been outstanding in the first two weeks, earning back-to-back SEC Gymnast of the Week honors. The junior has yet to top 9.950 on any event, but having already earned 9.9-plus on all four events this season makes that likely to change. Missouri freshman Jocelyn Moore snagged a 9.950 of her own on vault in Chapel Hill last weekend; her flared Yurchenko one and a half is a showstopper.
