The Big Storyline: It was a huge night for Towson, who recorded a season high team score—the highest score from any EAGL team thus far. The Tigers’ total was the sixth-best score in program history. George Washington finally made its 2021 season debut, and while it was not the start the Colonials hoped for, there were some bright points. Freshman Kendall Whitman had a strong debut, scoring a program record-tying score of 9.950 on floor and a 9.875 for her unique front handspring to front handspring pike half vault.
Implications: Towson’s score here will help tremendously once NQS kicks in and it can start dropping its lower totals. George Washington will not debut very high in the rankings, but there is still time left in the season, particularly if it can make up its postponed meets.
Records: Kendall Whitman’s 9.950 on floor tied the George Washington program record. Towson’s 196.150 team total is the sixth-highest score in program history. Amy Stewart recorded a career-high 9.900 on floor.
Controversies: Judging was painfully slow in this meet, particularly on beam.
