LIVE BLOG: No. 83 Greenville at No. 71 Fisk

Fisk competes in Nashville proper for the first time this season. While this meet is occurring down the street from Fisk at fellow Music City institution Belmont University, the Bulldogs’ contingent should be raucous this evening. Fisk welcomes the Greenville Panthers, who could round out their season with three overall wins with a high score tonight.

As non-NCAA teams, Fisk isn’t able to qualify a full team to the postseason. However, an exception was granted allowing Fisk to qualify individuals to the USAG championships, which is good news for former five-star recruit Morgan Price, who is in line to qualify on vault. Speaking of technicalities, tonight’s meet will not count toward the rankings or NQSgiven that Fisk is not an NCAA team and a meet must consist of at least two NCAA teams to count toward the final standings (which is why Fisk competed at so many multi-team meets this season to give its individuals a chance to qualify to USAGs). However, it remains an exciting and historic opportunity for two new programs to close out their inaugural seasons in exciting fashion.
