|Full Results||OSU: 197.200||DU: 196.725||Brown: 193.625||Sac St: 192.400|
|VT: Carey, 9.975||UB: Mundell, Carey, 9.925||BB: Carey, 9.950||FX: Carey, 9.975||AA: Carey, 39.825|
The Big Storyline: It’s Jade Carey’s world, and we’re just living in it. The sophomore sensation led her team to a season-high score and an upset of No. 8 Denver, as well as wins over Brown and Sacramento State, with a country high-tying 39.825 all-around score. Brown set season highs on three events and the team total in head coach Brittany Harris’ return to her alma mater.
Implications: No conference rankings changed as a result of this meet, but Oregon State advanced two spots to No. 16 nationwide, and Brown, which got a season high by a margin of over two points, improved its average substantially.
Records: Oregon State is undefeated in Gill Coliseum since the beginning of 2022, with a record of 11-0 in that timespan. Six Beaver routines set career highs.
Controversies: Denver had several beam scores adjusted after start values were questioned. Lynnzee Brown, Abbie Thompson and Jessica Hutchinson all had their scores increased after successful inquiries. As usual with Oregon State livestreams, few non-Beaver routines were shown, and commentators made several errors identifying high-profile gymnasts, including mixing up Mila Brusch and Lynnzee Brown.
Current Rankings: No. 8 Denver, No. 58 Sacramento State, No. 59 Brown at No. 18 Oregon State
Why You Should Make Time to Tune in: This quad meet breaks down into two independently compelling duals. Denver, fresh off a program record on vault at Michigan last week, is the favorite, but first it’ll have to get past the juggernaut of Oregon State home floor. Oregon State should be feeling good after a great result in the high-scoring evening session of the Wasatch Classic, where it was led by a 39.725 (and two controversial perfect 10.000s) from sophomore Jade Carey. Brown and Sacramento State have each only competed once and produced similar results, though both can improve a lot on their opening gambits. This meet is also a homecoming for Beaver alumna Brittany Harris, now the head coach at Brown.
Need More Proof? At Oregon State, only two people not named Jade Carey have scored 9.900-plus on any event this year, and one of them is freshman Savannah Miller on floor. If her name is unfamiliar, her debut in Gill Coliseum is a great time to get to know her. Denver’s Rosie Casali debuted a monster Yurchenko one and a half last week at Denver, scoring a 9.975 and beating Michigan’s entire lineup of stellar vaulters. Don’t miss Sacramento State powerhouse Emma Morgenthaler competing the same vault, either. If you haven’t watched Brown in a while, the name you need to know is Julia Bedell: She’s ultra-powerful, with scores as high as 9.900 on floor in her freshman season.
