Rhode Island NCGA NCGA-East

The NCGA Dismount: Week 8

While Winona State and Stout took bye weeks, the rest of the NCGA was kicking butt and taking names. Brockport continued its streak of high scoring meets, while Oshkosh stepped its game up even more this week with Emily Buffington stepping into the all around with a program record-breaking performance. 


Rhode Island Records Falling Down

2022 was full of breaking records for Rhode Island, and 2023 is no different. This week featured two pace setting routines from Morgan Lunn on beam and Kelsey Gates on floor with a 9.825 and 9.900, respectively. 

No Time Like Friday Night Heights

Ursinus’ Sidney Schreiber put the Bears on the Friday Night Heights map with this Yurchenko full. And in a new this season leo, none the less. 


Setting a program record? Just another day. Doing so in front of a record crowd? Oh heck yeah. 

NCGA-East Meet of the Week

Ithaca at Cortland

Why Should You (Re)Watch?: Look no further than Finger Lakes rivals Ithaca and Cortland. Both teams bring something different to the table, ahem, Abby Bang’s vault, Christelle Louis’ flawless Y-scale on beam, Delaney Brown’s whip to one and a half to punch front. Ithaca’s beam squad keeps things fresh and original, see Emily Kobusky’s roundoff layout stepout and Julia O’Sullivan’s front toss backhandsprin acro series on beam. 

Are These Teams Trending Up or Down?: Both teams had a few hiccups, so while there was no downward trajectory overall, bars proved to be an obstacle for both teams. However, both showed up strong on beam and floor. Two weeks left in the season, there’s a little to be nervous about but not enough to lose sleep. 

WIAC Meet of the Week

Hamline at UW-Whitewater

Why Should You (Re)Watch? Whitewater had itself a day, led by Kelsey Kollhoff’s career high 9.875 on floor. Let’s not forget Kara Welsh killing it on her two events as well. While the Warhawks do not typically have all around performers, the team does have many very talented athletes that make up the whole team. Highlights for Hamline were Bailee Davis’ sky high vault and Lily Ramsdell’s floaty double layout on bars. 

Are These Teams Trending Up or Down?: A 192.050 marks a significant jump for UWW. Can the team maintain that over the coming weeks? TBD. Hamline is trending pretty steady at the moment.
