Air Force at Alaska


Full Results USAFA: 194.200 UAA: 185.875

The Big Storyline: Alaska’s home finale featured some struggles on bars that held down the overall team score. The team celebrated its lone senior, Kylie Reese, who transferred from SPU after the program was cut. Although Air Force started off somewhat shaky on bars, the Falcons were able to pull together for a strong finish to the meet. 

Implications: After two 195s last weekend, the Falcons slipped back into the 194s this week. Daija Stevenson was completely absent from all lineups this week. Several team members stepped up to fill her absence, including Leilani Zander on beam. Her availability in the postseason will be necessary to optimize the likelihood of Air Force’s success. The Falcon’s trio of all-around performers are likely to contend at USAG nationals. The score posted today included several mistakes and awkward landings on bars. Cleaning up that event will set the Falcons up for better success in the coming weeks. Air Force’s USAG ranking will go unchanged for now. Alaska only counted two scores above a 9.0 on bars this meet. Overall, this season has been very up and down for the Seawolves, but the team will look to finish the season strong at the conference championships next week.

The event is finished.
