|Full Results||Ark: 196.975||OSU: 196.875||DU: 196.800||UNL: 195.750|
|VT: Mundell, Carey 9.950||UB: Carey 9.950||BB: Carey, Dagen 9.950||FX: Carey 9.950||AA: Carey 39.800|
The Big Storyline: Powered by a big 49.500 on vault, the Razorbacks picked up a trio of victories as they were able to edge Oregon State and home Denver in a very close matchup. Arkansas team effort was able to withstand another incredible performance from Beaver Jade Carey, who posted four identical 9.950s to win the all-around and a share of every event title. Before the meet, there was a scary moment on vault when Makenzie Sedlacek crashed an attempt. She was taken out of the arena for further evaluation and did not compete.
Implications: Notching a near-197 kept the Razorbacks in contention for the final regional seed, while Oregon State and Denver were able to maintain their status as seeded-teams.
Records: Arkansas’ vault total is a new program best.
Current Rankings: No. T-12 Oregon State, No. 18 Arkansas and No. 38 Nebraska at No. 14 Denver
Why You Should Clear Space on Your DVR: This is a hugely important meet for all four teams with regionals looming. Nebraska is currently on the outside looking in with a 195.500 to drop, Oregon State will want to break that tie, Arkansas does not want to drop out of the top 20 and Denver is looking to hold onto its position, now down three gymnasts with Achilles injuries. There’s a lot going on. Plus, it’s senior night!
You Can Fast Forward, but not Through This: Jade Carey should continue her string of dominance here. Several gymnasts have 9.975s and will want to join the 10 club: Kaitlyn Yanish is always close (pending a possibly severe injury last week), Carey can complete a gym slam by upgrading her vault and beam 9.975s to 10s, Rylie Mundell will be eyeing the number on beam and Kinsey Davis has potential on bars. The way scores have flown this year, you never know!
