|VT: Pfister, Moravansky 9.875||UB: Moravansky 9.875||BB: Chemotti 9.950||FX: Petrousek, Binstock 9.875||AA: Moravansky 39.375|
The Big Storyline: Western Michigan continued its 196-plus streak, led by a program-record-tying all-around performance from Sarah Moravansky. UW-Oshkosh posted a season high, the first 190-plus by any NCGA team in 2022.
Implications: Western Michigan entered this week at No. 18 in the country, and the Broncos will likely remain in a similar position next week. The one-two punch of all-arounders Payton Murphy and Sarah Moravansky is proving to be just what the team needs to make a move up the rankings. If this scoring trend continues, the Broncos’ regional fate will not come down to the final week of the season. Eastern Michigan crossed the 195.000 mark for the first time this season while Ball State’s 10.0 SV vaults only got better. For the time being, UW-Oshkosh will move to the top of the NCGA after its groundbreaking performance. The Titans looked like they were in a league of their own, so we’ll see if that trend persists when they head back to competing against other Division III foes.
Records: Oshkosh’s 191.650 was the second highest team total in program history. The team was led by a huge 9.750 on vault from Emily Gilot. Ella Chemotti’s 9.950 was enough for a new career high and a beam event victory.
