The Big Storyline: Bars proved to be the differentiator this weekend between the No. 1 and No. 2 teams in the MAC going into this dual, with the other three events’ team totals all between 0.150 of each other.
Implications: If anyone is still doubting Ball State as a serious bubble (or outright qualifying) team to regionals, now is the time to re-evaluate their opinion. Kent State moves into a grayer position, in the high 40s and still waiting to register its first 196-plus of the season.
Current Rankings: No. 32 Ball State at No. 36 Kent State
Why You Should Make Time to Tune in: This is a one-two conference match up, with consistent 9.9-plus routines at the back end of key lineups from both teams.
Need More Proof? Ball State has emerged as this year’s MAC surprise powerhouse, just over two tenths out of the top 30 nationally. Victoria Henry has been at the forefront of the Cardinals charge, but not without incredible depth from specialists including Megan Teter, Suki Pfister, and Lauren Volpe—three of many on the current roster with event program records. Kent State has the home advantage and will be looking to draw big scores from all-arounder Rachel Decavitch. The Golden Flashes boast a deep and high energy floor roster, led by Karlie Franz nearing a 9.900 average.
