BYU at Boise State


Full Results BYU: 196.450 Boise State: 195.975
VT: Vulaj, Miner-Van Tassell 9.875 UB: Stokes 9.975 BB: McClelland, Popp, Lopez 9.850 FX: Miner-Van Tassell 9.900 AA: Miner-Van Tassell 39.425

The Big Storyline: It wasn’t a perfect meet for either team, but it showed just how competitive these two teams could be if they are competing at their highest level. Boise State faltered on bars, where it had to count a fall, but was able to maintain less than a half point deficit between it and BYU. BYU had another meet where it didn’t count a fall but suffered uncharacteristic mistakes on bars and beam. 

Implications: At the end of the day, it was a good showcase of the competitiveness and parity in the MRGC. At the conference championships in about a month, we should be in for a treat with these teams; add in Utah State and Southern Utah, and it’ll be a good one. BYU notched a good road score which will be critical in a couple weeks when NQS kicks in; it now has a calculable NQS as well. BYU ultimately drops one place in the national rankings to No. 19, while Boise State retains its No. 24 overall ranking. In the conference standings, BYU overtook Utah State for No. 1 overall. 

Records: Alexis Stokes set a career high 9.975 on bars; that mark also ties the Boise State program record on bars. 

Controversies: Can we talk about the format of this meet for a second? It was WILD. Despite being a dual meet, vault and bars ran simultaneously, and they only decided it was a good idea to alternate for beam and floor. 


Current Rankings: No. 18 BYU at No. 24 Boise State

Why You Should Make Time to Tune in: This should be another close MRGC meet and is a rematch of last week’s meet at BYU. Last week, BYU defeated the Broncos in a thriller, 196.700 to 196.525. This time, Boise State will have the home crowd on its side as it looks for a quality MRGC win and another solid score.

Need More Proof? Boise State senior Emily Muhlenhaupt has been chasing a perfect score on bars for years and is currently ranked No. 4 nationally on the event. BYU senior Sadie Miner-Van Tassell continues to impress in her first season competing in the all-around. Also keep an eye out for BYU’s engaging routines on floor where the Cougars scored a 49.400 to take the meet last weekend. 

The event is finished.
