The NCGA Dismount: Week 6

With another 190-plus score in the bag, La Crosse hangs onto the No. 1 spot through Week 6. Brockport is finally ramping things up, with the second highest NCGA team total on the year. Ursinus is putting the pressure on, notching the best team floor score since 2017. When we say don’t sleep on DIII, we mean it.  


Every Landing Counts

Ursinus continues to knock it out of the park, and while the team didn’t post a season high, the Bears tumbled their way to the best team floor score since 2017, all while on the road going up against Penn, West Chester and Towson. Oh, and just to add more fun, the team high scores on floor in the East fall within 1.025 of each other. 

Routine Improv of the Week

Many gymnasts who cast over at the beginning of their routines panic and drop off the bar, not Elizabeth Schauer. This veteran added an overshoot and proceeded with the previously scheduled program, nailing her clear hip Gienger connection. 

Tik Tok of the Week

This is becoming a near weekly award for us here in the NCGA, but the props required to pull off this bus ride video really sent Gustavus over the top this week. We couldn’t help but share this with the gymternet. What a way to celebrate a season high and road win. 

NCGA-East Meet of the Week

Springfield at Brown

Why Should You (Re)Watch? This meet is a treat brimming with gymnastics that’ll put your mind at ease and makes for the best “What to watch tonight if you don’t want to scroll Netflix.” Why? Springfield posted the best team score at a dual since 2020, and Brown’s Bedell tied Alicia Sacramone Quinn’s floor record. And that best score for Springfield? It’s two points better than the Pride’s previous 2023 season high. Although Brown took the top three spots on floor, the Pride’s Devon Rosier’s 9.800 isn’t to be ignored. 

Are These Teams Trending Up or Down? Both Springfield and Brown are trending up, unquestionably. It’s only a matter seeing how high these teams can go as the season ticks on. 

WIAC Meet of the Week

UW-Whitewater at Stout

Why Should You (Re)Watch? An out-of-this-world beam performance kept the competition close heading into the final rotation. Carleigh Moore continued to shine on the leg events in her freshman campaign. Kelsey Kollhoff also shined on beam and floor. Stout’s beam team counted four scores over 9.625, with Isabela Krulich taking the top honors this week. In fact, no one put up a score under 9.000 on beam. 

Are These Teams Trending Up or Down? Whitewater’s consistency is slowly smoothing out, although the Warhawks haven’t found the success they had in January, their consistency should keep them on track to slowly continue trending up. Stout, on the other hand, hasn’t had as much consistency through the season, but it did score higher on three of the four events this week; the Blue Devils haven’t yet put it all together this season. There’s work to be done before saying they’re solidly trending up.
