The NCGA Dismount: Week 3

Third time’s the charm! After three weeks of waiting, all of the NCGA teams are finally in action. Brockport hit the road to Rhode Island College, where it continued its win streak, but the Anchormen still set three program records led by Olivia Keyes. UW-Whitewater entered the rankings with a Division III best 38.100 all-around performance from Faith Mylin. Ursinus hosted Cortland, Ithaca and Springfield, sweeping all three teams in its home opener. Currently, the same few faces are at the top of the rankings, but it’s going to be a battle for that No. 1 seed this year. Stay tuned. 

Glow-Up of the Week

Brockport at Rhode Island 

Olivia Keyes set three program records, Kelsey Gates tied Keyes for a floor program record and after a shaky home opener where it counted several falls, Brockport swung back and added two points to its bars score, including Bushey leading the way with a 9.575, a personal record for her. Lexi Castellaneta notched a 9.750 for a career high on vault. Every single event winner scored a program high or set a new career best. 

Stick of the Week

Emily Buffington, vault, 9.700

Buffington has been killing it so far this season, and this vault was no different. She just keeps getting better!

Miss Consistent

Emma Grant, Beam, 9.775


After missing the first meet of the season, senior Emma Grant has been THE beam queen the last two meets, posting a 9.800 and 9.775. Grant’s routine isn’t just clean, it also features a unique switch-foot aerial valued at an E. She currently sits as the No. 1 NCGA beam worker in the country. 

Mascot of the Week

Lucky Hot Dog, UW-Oshkosh

The picture really speaks for itself. It’s cute and lucky enough to help the Titans bring home the victory. What more could you ask for?

Streaming Experience of the Week

UW-Eau Claire

Nothing quite says Thursday night gymnastics like a tent at dusk. After several refreshes, fans found out that there indeed was not a live stream. The Blu Golds rectified the situation by going live on Instagram so no one would miss a routine.
