Boise State at Southern Utah


Full Results Southern Utah: 196.675 Boise State: 196.225
VT: Blackson, Lopez, R Smith 9.875 UB: Lopez, Muhlenhaupt 9.950 BB: Murakami 9.925 FX: Nipp 9.950 AA: N/A

The Big Storyline: This was far from the best meet for either team, as both had to count falls or mistakes on beam; Boise State also counted a mistake on floor. Bars was a main highlight for both teams; Boise State worked through an early lineup mistake to post a 49.500 behind Emily Muhlenhaupt, Emily Lopez and Alexis Stokes, and Southern Utah notched its second-best bars total of the year.

Implications: Boise State now has enough scores for an NQS and enters the rankings at No. 22 while Southern Utah drops to No. 20 overall. The Thunderbirds are currently counting two road scores in the 195s and have two opportunities to drop them—next week’s meet at Penn State will need to be a good one. Likewise, Boise State is counting all of its current scores and will want to drop a couple shaky performances in the 194s and 195s from the start of its season. Both of those scores came at home, so the worry to drop road scores isn’t there—Boise State just needs a good score, no matter where it comes from. 

Records: Trailing heading into the final rotation, Southern Utah capitalized on Boise State’s mistakes to remain undefeated at home this season. Multiple career highs helped the Thunderbirds’ efforts, including Karley McClain’s 9.925 on bars. Hailey Vultaggio also set two career highs: a 9.825 on vault and 9.925 on floor. Boise State’s Emily Lopez notched a 9.950 on bars to set a new career high.

The event is finished.
