The USAG Dismount: Week 7

Moving into the second half of the season, and taking NQS into account, you can expect to see a few changes as teams continue to peak and polish routines. Many teams have started to lock eyes on a competitive championship that will come at the end of the first full season with all teams competing for the first time since 2019. Highlights of the week included Gayla Griswold’s near perfect vault and the return of SEMO’s Anna Speller to the beam lineup. Some teams are hitting a mid-season lull while others are hitting their stride. Either way, the pressure at the top is only increasing.  

Performance of the Weekend

Madeline Gose, Texas Woman’s

Across two meets this weekend, Gose posted five scores of 9.850 or higher including a pair of 9.9s on beam and floor on Sunday. Perhaps finally getting to return to her home state was just the incentive Gose needed to put together one of the best weekends of her career. 

Save of the Week

Eva Phair, 9.300, beam

Eva Phair worked some Big Red magic on beam with this save à la Matrix on her leap series. 

Vault You Probably Missed But Should Go Back and Watch Several Times

Gayla Griswold, vault, 9.975

An absolutely gorgeous, sky high and stuck Yurchenko 1.5 from Gayla Griswold closed out a season high vault rotation for Lindenwood. Excuse us while we have this on repeat for the rest of the week.
