Arizona at California
|Full Results||California: 197.575||Arizona: 196.025|
|VT: DeSouza 9.900||UB: Bordas 9.950||BB: Bordas 9.950||FX: Hargrove, Herry, Quinn 9.925||AA: Bordas 39.575|
The Big Storyline: Tying her career high in the all-around, Maya Bordas powered California to an easy win over visiting Arizona to remain undefeated on the season and in the hunt for the Pac-12 regular season title. The Golden Bears were consistent on every event, using the second highest beam total in school history to propel themselves to a new season high. The Wildcats left encouraged with a new away-best on the season, led by event title-winning floor routines from Malie Hargrove and Caroline Herry.
Implications: California now needs one win in its next two meets to secure itself at least a share of the conference regular season championship. Two wins or a Utah loss would secure the title outright. Arizona remains winless on the season but is currently projected to be the last team to make the regionals cutoff.
Records: Herry’s floor-winning total was a new career best, along with a 9.900 on beam from Hargrove.
Current Rankings: No. 34 Arizona at No. 9 California
Why You Should Clear Space on Your DVR: Fresh off of an upset, California leads the Pac-12 and will be looking to take another step toward claiming the regular season crown as it hosts winless Arizona, which is in desperate need of a good score to stay on the good side of the postseason bubble.
You Can Fast Forward, but not Through This: After missing a few meets with illness, Milan Clausi should return to lineups and give the Golden Bears an added boost as they try to solidify a top 10 ranking. Gabby Perea made her collegiate debut on two events in Clausi’s absence, so expect some additional lineup shakeups to see if she remains or if someone else comes out as Clausi is inserted back in. For Arizona, Malia Hargrove seems to finally be back in a groove after a scary fall on bars early in the season. Watch for her 9.9-earning floor routine with a full-in opening pass.
