The USAG Dismount: Week 1

Season is finally back in session! For the Ivy League and West Chester, this weekend marked the first competition in nearly two years. It was an exciting weekend full of firsts all around with Centenary taking the national stage at LSU and Texas Woman’s scoring its highest season-opening score in program history. This is also the debut of the new GEC, formerly the ECAC-I and ECAC-II. Get pumped for the first full season of USAG gymnastics since 2019! It’s going to be a good one. 

Upset of the Week

Texas Woman’s, 193.700

Texas Woman’s went to the UF quad meet and defeated Division I Rutgers. Last season, TWU was ranked No. 48 while Rutgers narrowly missed a regionals berth in the No. 40 spot. The Pioneer’s competition was highlighted by lights-out performances on vault and floor while the Scarlet Knights could not overcome mistakes on bars and beam. 

New Leotard of the Week

West Chester

How could we possibly deny the combination of a sleek purple bodice and golden jewels galore? The ram on the sleeve adds the perfect amount of school spirit and style. We promise to get a picture that does it more justice in the near future. 

Unsung Hero of the Week

Riley Meeks, Floor, 9.600

After Claire Qu was injured on beam, Yale called on Riley Meeks to lead off the floor rotation. She delivered a strong and much needed solid floor routine for the Bulldogs.

Best Celebration Caught on Camera

Kendall Sanders, Centenary

When your stuck landing is just as jaw dropping to you as everyone else… On a serious note, a stuck Yurchenko half and tying a career high is reason to celebrate.
