The Dismount: Week 1

The long-awaited 2023 gymnastics season finally arrived with a thrilling first week of competition that started with the Super 16 mega meet and debut of HBCU Fisk and ended with a couple of exciting Monday night duals. Despite the lighter-than-normal slate, so many things still happened, so it’s natural you missed at least something along the way. Catch up below with superlatives, recaps and results.


History in the Making

Fisk’s debut lived up to the hype leading up to its first meet in program history, and Brockport transfer Naimah Muhammad officially kicked things off on floor for the Bulldogs.

Best Choreography

You may have thought this would be a UCLA or Oklahoma routine, or maybe Derrian Gobourne’s fifth-year set. And while all of those routines are phenomenal as always, our early favorite for best of 2023 goes to BYU’s Rebekah Ripley. Show us something more fun than this. We’ll wait.

Debut of the Week

Former five-star recruit Morgan Price shocked the gymnastics world when she flipped her commitment from Arkansas to join Fisk’s inaugural roster this summer. But she proved her decision was well worth it by nailing her Yurchenko full for a 9.900 in Fisk’s first meet in Las Vegas on Friday.

Best Shoes

With Illinois State, and thus Megan Harrington, paving the way, other coaches have begun to up their shoe game in 2023. Washington assistant coach Jeffrey Langenstein stepped up to the plate and hit it out of the park with his shoes from the Super 16 meet in Las Vegas.

Most Savage Tweet

LSU is known for its Twitter shade after wins on Twitter—all in good fun. But the Tigers got a taste of their own medicine after falling to Utah this weekend. Is this the start of a storied rivalry?

Upgrade of the Week

En route to an all-around win, tied with teammate Sarah Lutrel, Emma Morgenthaler competed a program-first double layout on floor for the Hornets.
