Who’s ready for some Monday gymnastics? Tonight we get New Hampshire and UNC, a deviation from the typical Pac-12 Monday night meets.
I don’t know what I’m more excited for: the gymnastics, a Monday meet at a time I can actually watch or Christina Chauvernet commentary.
New Hampshire has steadily increased its score each week and nearly hit 196 last week. Freshman Kylie Gorgenyi did the all around at that meet for the first time in her collegiate career. The Wildcats shine on beam, where Alyssa Worthington has come into her own and Rylie Freehling has been a steady contributor.
North Carolina has had an inconsistent season, not helped by the loss of freshman Hallie Thompson. Bars has been a struggle for the Tar Heels, with freshman Elizabeth Culton being the exception. Khazia Hislop leads the way on three events, but watch for Mikayla Robinson on vault and floor as well.
This is the second of two meetings of these teams this weekend. On Saturday at N.C. State, UNC posted its second best score of the season at 194.600. The Tar Heels posted season bests on vault and floor, led by Khazia Hislop’s 9.925 and 9.95, respectively. Bars still wasn’t stellar for UNC, but it was one of its better rotations of the season and it only counted one fall. New Hampshire also had a hit meet, but it wasn’t its best meet. Still, it posted a season high on vault. Freshmen Kylie Gorgenyi (UNH) and Elizabeth Culton (UNC) tied in the all around; watch for them as they compete again tonight.
