The USAG Dismount: Week 6

Welcome to the second half of the regular season! Lindenwood continues to dominate the USAG division, just holding off Air Force and a fierce West Chester squad, ready to climb the rankings at a moments notice. Gayla Griswold is working hard, leading the charge for Lindenwood with her pocketful of 9.900s from the weekend. Yale defended its home turf in the Barbara and Don Tonry invitational, holding off SCSU. The difference between third and sixth place is less than a tenth heading into week seven. You won’t want to miss the coming action as the teams continue to jostle it out for the top of the podium. 

Our Lady of Leaps

Natalie Marshall, beam, 9.675

This switch leap to straddle three-quarter by Natalie Marshall, noble member of the Golden Rams, is the standard to which all leaps and straddle jumps will be held going forward. I don’t make the rules, I just follow the ones set by Our Lady of Leaps.

Consistency Queen 

Emerson Adams, vault, 9.850

This weekend’s 9.850 on vault marked Adams’ fifth score over 9.800 in six attempts. What’s the sixth score? You might ask. 9.775. Whether home or away, Emerson Adams’ vault remains the same. She is the steady anchor in her team’s lineup, and she’s just a freshman!

Undercover Performance of the Week

Gayla Griswold, vault and floor, 9.900

Gayla Griswold was awarded a 9.900 on two of her three events this weekend. Too bad those who were not present in Houck will never get to see those performances in all their glory. We’re particularly interested to see her Yurchenko one and a half. It’s been getting progressively better throughout the season, but we want to see the one worthy of throwing a 9.900.
