The Big Storyline: Air Force claimed its home opener in dominating fashion while Alaska made its first competitive appearance since March 2020. 

Implications: Air Force finally showed the gymnastics world the potential it has to offer. This team is composed of large freshman and senior classes, both of which have proven to make big contributions to the team’s scoring ability. A couple major lineup returns helped the Falcons to eclipse 193.000. Daija Stevenson’s full made its way back into the vault lineup. Adding another twisting vault will help to increase the Falcon’s vault SV. Briona Carswell also was back in the beam lineup this week for a strong 9.800. Air Force has moved into the second spot in the in-progress USAG rankings. Let’s see if it can hold onto that spot through the end of the weekend. The future’s looking bright for Air Force. Alaska made its 2022 debut after missing all of last season. Struggles on floor prevented the Seawolves from posting a big team score. The team will have a chance to redeem itself on Sunday in a tri meet at Air Force. 

Records: Cameo Stapleton posted a career high 9.875 on floor en route to the event title on the event. The freshman duo of Ayla McKean and Genevieve Sabado each upped their all-around career highs with a 39.100 and 38.900, respectively.

The event is finished.
