The Dismount: Week 10

Teams rose to the occasion in the final week of meets before the conference championships. The regionals picture got a little clearer, more program records were surpassed and a handful more 10s were added to the 2022 total. Catch up on everything you missed with recaps, results, superlatives and more in this week’s Dismount.

Best Perspective

Bowling Green

We’re all about gymnastics here, but there’s a lot going on in the world. The Falcons put it all in perspective on Instagram, showing off their support of Ukraine with blue and yellow hair ribbons and reminding us to take a moment to remember what’s happening outside of the gym.

Biggest “Finally!” Moment

Lexy Ramler, Minnesota, Bars

Ramler went up on bars and performed her normal competition routine, then she went again in the exhibition spot to finally perform the “Ramler” for the first time in college. We don’t even care that the skill was messy!

Heartwarming Senior Night Moment

Geneva Thompson, Washington, Beam

We’ve always liked the idea of seniors getting to compete in their senior meet no matter if it’s in the all-around or a random exhibition doing timers or simple skills in place of the real routine. Washington fifth-year Geneva Thompson, who’s a mainstay on vault, bars and floor, got that opportunity when she performed a dance-through on beam to complete her “all-around” performance.

Best Dressed

Bridgeport Assistant Coach Mark Sorrentino

We just have one question: Where can we get a gymnastics tie? Asking for a friend.

Biggest Broadcast Fail

SECN+

This is how SECN+ was advertising Michigan State at Kentucky. Not…quite.

BTN+ Fail of the Week

You know by now that BTN+ gets its own category and is unrelated to the above category… Anyway, now that’s what you call senior day scoring!

Best Use of Face Tattoos

Illinois State

Face tattoos are a pretty regular thing in college gym, so we appreciate when teams mix it up. Michigan has its back ribbon tattoos, and now Illinois State brings the Black power fist to go with its fun rainbow ribbons for the team’s diversity and inclusion meet.
