The NCGA Dismount: Week 4

Week 4 was the time for score explosions. Hamline posted a new season best by over four points while La Crosse produced marks worthy of its all-time list. Brockport was also significantly steadier this week, claiming three of four event titles at its meet. Needless to say, we’re about to get into the thick of the season where scores get better and it’s anyone’s game to win. 


Glitter Hair Everywhere

To answer Cortland’s question, is there ever too much glitter? Heck no. Bring on the glitter on glitter on glitter on sparkles. 

Intro Video of the Week

Stout’s 2023 intro video rivals the big dogs, fit with back lighting and smoke. We love the drama and getting to see the production quality making its way to DIII.

Hypest Teammates Award

Hamline’s cheering section was loud and proud in its trip down to Louisiana, pushing the team to a season high. Flame sunglasses, encouraging screams and team camaraderie were at the forefront this weekend. This team is fun to watch! If you’re sleeping on the Pipers, you’re missing out.  

The Seventh Ursinus Routine

If you look closely in the background of these Ursinus pictures, you’ll find the seventh member of the Ursinus lineup. We have to say, we’re beary into it. 

NCGA-East Meet of the Week

Cortland, Ursinus, at WCU

Why Should You (Re)Watch? This meet was a clinic on pacing as the teams start to polish routines and put all that practice to work. Every single team hit a new season high, or in Ursinus’ case, came within a tenth or so. Don’t let that stop you from being interested, as the Bears notched a 47.675 on vault, the second best team score since the 2020 season. Not to be outdone, the Red Dragons roared to a 47.825 on vault as well, the best since 2018. As for the Golden Rams? Not a single event score below 48.000.

Are These Teams Trending Up or Down?: The Bears, the Golden Rams, the Red Dragons? Each and every one is climbing, charging, and soaring up! 

WIAC Meet of the Week

UW-La Crosse and Sacramento State at San Jose State

Why Should You (Re)Watch? Not only was this a season high team total for La Crosse, but several athletes made their event debuts as well. Jordan Halcom, a Rutgers transfer, made her first official routine count with a rock solid beam set. Madi Vanderpool also made her return to the beam lineup with a hit, helping the team to the program’s second highest beam total in history with a 48.675. 

Are These Teams Trending Up or Down?: The fact that La Crosse was able to improve this week while showing its level of depth has us leaning toward trending up.
