Centenary at Texas Woman’s
|Full Results||Texas Woman’s: 191.575||Centenary: 186.575|
|VT: Emerson Adams 9.825||UB: Isabel Goyco, Mara Johnson 9.725||BB: Kyla Podges 9.825||FX: Madeline Gose 9.825||AA: Emma Lavelle 37.850|
The Big Storyline: Neither team will be happy with the end result as bars, once again proved to be their nemeses.
Implications: Vault and floor once again saved the day for the Pioneers, but counting two mistakes on bars and beam was less than ideal. Goyco and Johnson’s bars were unwavering despite the trouble that preceded them. Adding Podges and Makenzie Kunzman back on beam will be helpful in the long run. This week’s team score will not help TWU move up in the MIC or USAG rankings. For a team that is known to be very successful in home competitions, this meet was a bit out of character. Centenary started the meet struggling on bars and never fully recovered. The hit bar routines this week were lower scoring than the team expected, which set the tone for the rest of the competition. Highlights included Emma Lavelle’s 9.700 on floor and 9.775 on beam. She’s turning out to be a real asset to the team this year. Watch out for her come postseason. The Ladies will continue to work toward five-for-six made routines on all the events.
Records: Junior Kyla Podges put together a 9.825 beam routine, which was good enough for a new career high and the event win.
Controversies: The judges seemed to be having a hard time, with five-tenth splits between scores being a regular occurrence during this meet. Judging conferences may or may not have occurred when there was a discrepancy.
