The NCGA Dismount: Week 4

The WIAC rounded out its short but sweet season this past weekend on a positive note. Nearly every team had one of their top performances of the year, and many seniors finished out their careers with season-best scores. Check out some of the highlights from this past weekend, and get excited for the future of these programs! There is some incredible underclassmen talent on these teams that will shine when given the opportunity to compete at the conference and national level next year.

Routine of the Week

Shelsea Zehr, Floor, 9.450


Zehr has been a staple in the Warrior floor lineup throughout her four years of competition. Her beautiful RO + whip half + Rudi is the highlight of the routine, but she also finishes with a double tuck, which is rare in DIII gymnastics. 

Stick of the Week

Meg McGinley, Vault and Floor, 9.575 and 9.675

McGinley’s massive Yurchenko layout outscored or tied every single twisting vault in Whitewater’s meet against Oshkosh this weekend. Though it technically wasn’t stuck, it was extremely close, and once we saw her stuck double pike on floor too, we knew we had to highlight both!
