The Dismount: Week 10

Senior night scoring came out to play this weekend with many teams earning season-highs and others not even having senior night posting program bests and other high scores. California shattered its previous school record for team score and on individual events. Utah beat Georgia with a senior high, Auburn did enough to clinch the night session of SECs and move up in the rankings while Nebraska did enough to move into the top 12. Catch up on everything else you might have missed with our recaps of the top meets, links to full results for every team that competed this weekend and top individual event finishers.

No. 1 Oklahoma at No. 8 UCLA: Full Results
OU: 197.950 | UCLA: 197.200
VT: Price 9.9 | UB: Wofford, Honest 9.95 | BB: Capps 9.975 | FX: Bynum, Cipra, Francis, Scaman, Jackson 9.95 | AA: Capps 39.550Despite it being UCLA’s senior night, the competition was all about Oklahoma. With yet another near-198, the Sooners solidified themselves as the ones to beat some postseason. The effort also clinched the No. 1-regular-season ranking for the team and most likely the No. 1-ranking going into regionals in three weeks. But the meet wasn’t without its controversy. But what UCLA meet is? After completely missing the beam on her series, Sonya Meraz claimed a flash from a camera threw her off and she was allowed to redo the routine at the end of the lineup. However, she fell on her series in that routine, too. But on the positive side, 9.95s were being thrown around like beads at Mardi Gras. Oklahoma’s Haley Scaman and AJ Jackson and UCLA’s seniors Danusia Francis, Angi Cipra and Sadiqua Bynum earned the mark on floor while McKenzie Wofford and Janay Honest had it on bars. Chayse Capps one-upped everyone with a near-perfect 9.975 on beam to close out the meet.

No. 57 North Carolina at No. 2 Florida: Full Results
UF: 198.050 | UNC: 193.725
VT: Baker, McMurtry, Sloan 9.925 | UB: McMurtry 10.0 | BB: Lane 9.95 | FX: Sloan 10.0 | AA: Sloan 39.775Before the meet even got underway, fans prepared for a night of high scores and lots of 10s. And they weren’t disappointed. However, the 10s didn’t solely come from the senior class. The meet started on vault with three Gators tying for the top mark of 9.925. Kennedy Baker, Alex McMurtry and Bridget Sloan each competed solid vaults for the high score. On bars, Sloan nailed her routine

but was only given a 9.975 despite the fans and team shouting for a 10. But the next score was perfect, with McMurtry earning her second 10 of the season on the event. On beam, UNC’s Morgan Lane completed a gorgeous routine with a unique mount to acro series that had even the Florida fans clapping in approval. The effort was worth a 9.95 for the event win. And in the last event, the scores were really flying with Sloan earning her 10 for the night in the fourth spot in the lineup. Baker and Caquatto followed with 9.95s.
No. 3 LSU, No. 30 New Hampshire, No. 16 Oregon State at No. 59 Texas Woman’s: Full Results
LSU: 197.825 | OSU: 196.550 | UNH: 193.800 | TWU: 193.000
VT: Gnat 9.95 | UB: McMillan, Finnegan 9.95 | BB: Finnegan 9.9 | FX: Gnat 10.0 | AA: Hambrick 39.450Despite a bit of scoring controversy, LSU came away with the win in its last meet of the regular season, posting another near-198 to take the victory over Oregon State, New Hampshire and Texas Woman’s. Ashleigh Gnat scored her fifth perfect 10 of the season with another on floor. She became the only LSU gymnast to have five in a season. She also added a 9.95 on vault and 9.8 on beam to her night. On floor, the Tigers posted a huge 49.625, which included 9.9s from Sydney Ewing, McKenna Kelley and Jessica Savona and a 9.925 from Randii Wyrick. Sarah Finnegan also had a 9.925 on vault, a 9.95 on bars and a 9.9 on beam to cap off a stellar first regular season. Oregon State had an average performance leading up to the last event but closed with a bang, totaling a 49.425 on bars with the help of Kaytianna McMillan’s 9.95 to end the meet. New Hampshire continued to struggle on its best event, beam, posting only a 48.8. But it was still enough to pass TUW to finish third with a 193.800.


No. 9 Georgia at No. 5 Utah: Full Results
Utah: 197.675 | UGA: 197.125
VT: Rogers 9.925 | UB: Rowe 9.95 | BB: Box, Lopez 9.95 | FX: Hughes 10.0 | AA: Hughes 39.650It was Georgia’s third-straight meet over 197, but that still wasn’t enough to beat a stronger Utah team at home on senior night. The Utes had a pretty fair showing from the judges but the night ended with a perfect 10.0 for senior Breanna Hughes on floor. It was Utah’s highest score of


the season. The night started slow on vault, with only one score over 9.85 for the Utes. The scores began to build on bars, though, as Hughes and Sabrina Schwab earned 9.925s, Kassandra Lopez a 9.9 and Baely Rowe a 9.95. On beam, Kailah Delaney fell, but the rest of the lineup picked up the slack, with Lopez posting a huge 9.95. On floor, Tiffani Lewis and Schwab added 9.925s to Hughes’ 10.0. For Georgia, it wa a solid performance but still with too many small errors to challenge Utah in Salt Lake City. Mary Beth Box scored her second-consecutive 9.95 on beam and Brittany Rogers added a 9.925 on vault and bars and a 9.9 on beam. The Gymdogs finished with a 197.125.
Big 10 Qualifier: No. 18 Iowa, No. 6 Michigan, No. 19 Minnesota, No. 40 Rutgers at No. 28 Penn State: Full Results
Minn: 197.425 | PSU: 197.125 | UM: 196.875 | Iowa: 196.650 | RU: 194.525
VT: Karas 9.95 | UB: B. Brown 9.925 | BB: Nordquist 10.0 | FX: Glover, Mable, Karas 9.925 | AA: Karas 39.625This meet is defined by its fancy beam scores. While Minnesota won the meet handedly (and clinched the regular season Big 10 title), the final outcome might have been a bit closer had the “fans stayed in the stands” like former Utah head coach now loves to say. Hanna Nordquist scored a perfect 10.0 for a routine with some errors, but it was really all the judges could do after building up the scores before her. But it wasn’t just Minnesota on beam that produced a few questionable scores. Nicole Artz fells on her dismount, almost face-planting into the mat but still earned a 9.45 for the routine that would have scored a 9.95 without the fall. Penn State also made some noise, leading after two rotations and


qualifying to the night session of the Big 10 Championships next weekend in the second spot, knocking out Iowa. Nicole Medvitz’s 9.975 on beam and nailed landings on bars were some of the ways the Nittany Lions accomplished the feat. Michigan finished third after having to count a fall on beam.
No. 48 Arizona State at No. 7 Auburn: Full Results
Aub: 197.175 | ASU: 193.275
VT: Allex, Atkinson 9.9 | UB: Atkinson 9.925 | BB: Atkinson 9.925 | FX: Atkinson 9.975 | AA: Atkinson 39.725It was an emotional night for Auburn’s seniors. Kait Kluz was in tears after finishing her floor routine and Lexus Demers was crying before her final routine even started. Caitlin Atkinson, however, was as calm as ever, hitting a near-perfect 9.975 for her effort. Atkinson went on to win the all around with a 39.725. It wasn’t just a big night for the seniors, though. Auburn’s 197.175 was enough to

clinch a spot in the night session of the conference championships next weekend. The Tigers needed a 196.950 to make it impossible for Georgia to overtake them in the rankings. Arizona State also performed well for the most part. Taylor Allex continued to be the rock for the team, scoring a 9.9 on vault and a 9.875 on floor.
No. 10 Denver, No. 58 Seattle-Pacific at No. 24 Washington: Full Results
UW: 196.650 | DU: 196.325 | SPU: 193.950
VT: Northey 9.9 | UB: Duranczyk 9.9 | BB: Goings 9.875 | FX: McGee 9.925 | AA: Northey 39.500Coming off two great performances, Denver went down a bit, losing to Washington after posting only a 196.325. The Pioneers had trouble on vault and beam but came on strong on bars and floor. The team will have to fix the


corrections before next week’s conference championships in Texas so as to keep its solid position in the rankings heading into regionals. Washington, meanwhile, posted a big 196.650 on its senior night. The score was enough to move past Stanford for the No. 5-spot in the Pac-12 and up to No. 17 in the rankings after Saturday. The Huskies had two scores of 9.9 in the win, coming from Allison Northey on vault and Kaitlyn Duranczyk on bars. Northey also won the all around with a 39.500. Nina McGee was a bright spot for the Pioneers, posting a 9.925 on floor. However, it was the team’s only score of 9.9+ during the competition.
No. 32 Utah State at No. 11 Arkansas: Full Results
Ark: 196.775 | USU: 194.825
VT: Speed, Wellick, McGlone 9.825 | UB: Speed, Zaziski 9.875 | BB: Wellick 9.9 | FX: Canizaro 9.875 | AA: Wellick 39.350Yet another senior night fell on Friday with the Razorbacks celebrating its class. The team hit a season high by 0.075 and Wellick took the all around title with a 39.350. Wellick also picked up wins on beam and vault while brae Speed won vault and bars. Sydney McGlone shared the vault title and Paige Zaziski shared the title on bars. Fifth-year senior, Arkansas’ only current team member with Super Six experience, won the floor title with a 9.875. Utah State had to overcome some adversity early on, with normal-rock competitor McKenzey Martinez scoring a 6.2 on bars and only competing vault after rather than completing the all around like normal. But overall, the Aggies bounced back, with eight scores at 9.8 or above.

No. 46 San Jose State, Southern Utah at Boise State: Full Results
Boise: 197.325 | SUU: 196.275 | SJSU: 195.350
VT: Bennion, Stockwell 9.9 | UB: Jacobsen 9.975 | BB: Remme 9.9 | FX: Collantes, Krentz 9.925 | AA: Ramirez 39.450In by far its best meet of the season, Boise State sent its seniors out in style, scoring a 197.325, annihilating its previous school record. Krystine Jacobsen had a near-perfect 9.975 on bars and Sandra Collantes and Maddie Krentz finished the night on floor with 9.925s. Ann Stockwell and Mackenzie Bennion also added 9.9s on vault to the mix while Shani Remme had one on beam. Southern Utah hit a season-high road score with a 196.275 to place second at the tri meet. Natalie Trejo had a 9.9 on floor for the Thunderbirds and Danielle Ramirez and Stacie Webb continued to be consistent competitors for the team. San Jose rounded out the competition with a 195.350.


No. 14 California, No. 41 Sacramento State at No. 42 UC-Davis: Full Results
Cal: 197.500 | UCD: 196.025 | Sac State: 195.425
VT: Robinson 9.9 | UB: Williams 9.925 | BB: Howe 9.95 | FX: Williams 9.95 | AA: Rice 39.225Backed by the second highest floor and beam scores in school history, season-high totals on vault and bars (and the third-highest bar total in school history), Cal easily


walked away with the win in its final meet of the regular season with its highest total score in program history. It was a night full of records and highs, putting the Bears in a great position heading into the conference championships. The massive total also allowed the team to jump Stanford in the rankings, becoming most likely the No. 3-seed at Pac-12s next weekend — an unprecedented feat. Jessica Howe had a huge 9.95 on beam and Toni-Ann Williams had a 9.95 on floor followed by Zoe Draghi’s 9.925. Amber Takara also got in on the fun with a 9.9 on bars and Williams also had a 9.925 on the event. UC Davi finished the meet in second with a 196.025 while Sacramento State came in third with a 195.425.
No. 15 Missouri at Western Michigan: Full Results
Miz: 195.800 | WMU: 195.425
VT: Harris, Ward 9.875 | UB: Corbett 9.875 | BB: Ward 9.925 | FX: Underwood, Porter 9.875 | AA: Porter 39.325Missouri didn’t have the meet it wanted to going into the conference championships next weekend, however it still left Michigan with a win and a 195.800 total to cap off the night. The Tigers’ underclassmen continued to shine with


Kennedi Harris and Britney Ward tying for the vault title with a 9.875, Ward taking the beam win with a 9.925 and Morgan Porter sharing the floor title with a 9.875. Western Michigan’s Anna Corbett took the bars title with a 9.875 and Rachael Underwood shared the floor win. Porter won the all around with a 39.325.
Big 10 Qualifier: No. 23 Illinois, No. 39 Maryland, No. 34 Michigan State, No. 16 Nebraska at No. 28 Ohio State: Full Results
Neb: 197.000 | MSU: 196.350 | OSU: 196.100 | Ill: 195.950 | UMD: 195.500
VT: Buchanan 9.9 | UB: Westney, Williams 9.875 | BB: breen, Schweihofer 9.925 | FX: Buchanan, Frederick, Blanske, Laeng 9.925 | AA:The second of the Big 10 Championships qualifiers wasn’t


nearly as outrageous with its scoring as the first. Nebraska won easily with its second 197 of the year. However, the most shocking part of the competition was probably Michigan State placing second and Ohio State finishing third, knocking Illinois to the fourth spot and first session of the conference meet next weekend. The Illini suffered an injury to star Giana O’Connor on floor. The team has now lost both O’Connor and Mary Jane Horth to injury this season. O’Connor’s status for next week’s competition is unknown. For the Huskers, Megan Schweihofer and Danielle Breen scored 9.925s on beam while Haillie Blanske (9.925), Breen (9.9) and Jennie Laeng (9.925) all came through on floor to seal the win. Michigan State had a great performance to send it to the night session of the championships. The Spartans were backed by Lisa Burt’s 39.375 in the all around, Kira Frederick’s 9.925 on floor and Hailee Westney’s 9.9 on beam. Ohio State also had a score of 9.9 with Stefanie Merkle posting one on floor.
