Auburn, Iowa State, Utah and UCLA each held Halloween-themed intrasquads on Friday. With only two months until the season begins in January, teams are beginning to practice full routines and are solidifying which skills they will compete.
On vault, Meaghan Sievers performed a front handspring front pike half, which has a 10.0 start value. The team showed full bar routines, some with soft landings for dismounts . On beam and floor, the videos show the Cyclones doing routines on competition surfaces.Some of the highlights are below. For all videos, check out Iowa State’s Twitter
At Alabama’s Ghosts and Goblins intrasquad, Kiana Winston performed a stuck double tuck dismount off beam and a stuck Yurchenko full on vault. Katie Bailey has upgraded her Yurchenko half to a Yurchenko full. Kenzie Valentin performed a double layout on floor, and she already has a double front. The freshmen had their first chance to show their college skills in front of a crowd, and Amanda Huang continues to be strong on bars (like she was in J.O.
). Ariana Guerra performed on both beam and floor, even though she fell on her series (round-off + two-foot layout). Both recovering from surgery, Aja Sims (shoulder) and Lauren Beers (hand and ankle) are not yet back to full force.
