The NCGA Dismount: Week 2

After a fairly empty week one, week two had several more teams back in action, including those in the NCGA-East, which was dormant for quite some time. Brockport proved that they haven’t lost ground after last completing a full season and claiming a regional and national title in 2019. That’s not to say there weren’t still meet cancellations. Ursinus, Springfield, UW-Whitewater and UW-Stout have yet to begin their 2022 seasons. It’s shaping up to be a battle for the top spot in the NCGA. Hopefully next week there will be a fuller picture of what ALL the NCGA teams have to offer this year. 

Upset of the Week

UW-La Crosse, Vault and Floor

The Eagles meant business when they traveled to St. Charles and defeated the host Lindenwood Lions on both vault and floor with a 47.700 and 48.025, respectively. For vault, consistency was the key, while floor brought the big tumbling and fun dance moves. La Crosse also posted the highest team score in the NCGA so far this year. Keep an eye on the Eagles.

New Leotard of the Week

Brockport debuted a bedazzled eagle on its leotard this week, with jewels lining the straps on the open back, completing the touch with Brockport spelled out, maxing out the sparkles. In motion, this leotard sparkled nonstop.

Unique Pass of the Week

Amelia Bailey, floor, 9.275

There’s something about a pass you don’t see often, let alone those you see rarely. Bailey’s tuck full + front half to a back tuck grabs your attention and makes you want a routine full of this creativity.
