Centenary at Alaska


Full Results Alaska: 188.825 Centenary: 187.500
VT: Huff, Johnson 9.600 UB: Manley 9.800 BB: Decious 9.875 FX: Decious 9.700 AA: Sanders 38.475

The Big Storyline: Both teams had a difficult time staying on the equipment as Alaska just outpaced Centenary to take the win. Consistency was questionable across the board, but Rachel Decious and Kendall Sanders proved to be the rocks of their individual teams. Alyssa Manley’s bars impressed yet again this week. Considering she’s only a freshman, the sky is the limit for her success in college gymnastics. Leilani Johnson proved that sometimes clean form can beat high difficulty, taking a share of the vault win for her near-stuck Yurchenko layout. 

Implications: Neither team’s performance will help their causes in moving up the rankings. Alaska and Centenary will look to their second matchup of the weekend to seek some redemption from multiple uncharacteristic performances. Kendall Sanders posted a season high all-around total, jumping to the top of Division III. She will look to continue to put together consistent performances on all events to qualify for her fourth straight USAG national championships. Several individuals on the Ladies’ roster are not able to compete right now due to short term injuries, so the rest of the team will need to pick it up to fill in the gaps. Madison McCary made her collegiate debut on bars while Taylor Ann Wilson competed beam for the first time in her career. Both were among the top performers on the team. They should increase the amount of depth moving forward. 

Records: Kendall Sanders achieved a career high 9.775 on beam for her upgraded BHS layout two-feet series and stuck dismount.

The event is finished.
