Georgia at LSU


Full Results LSU: 197.200  Georgia: 196.375
VT: Bryant 9.9  UB: Durante 9.900 BB: Campbell 9.950 FX: Edwards 9.925 AA: Bryant 39.475

The Big Storyline: LSU swept the event titles with another 197-plus week. The Tigers also showcased their depth with exhibition performances on every event. On the other hand, Georgia continues to struggle with depth as a result of injuries, with lineups changing even more this week. However, the Gymdogs got back on the right track this week with their highest score of the season.

Implications: LSU will surpass Oklahoma and Michigan after the latter two teams scored uncharacteristically low. On the injury front, Georgia junior Rachael Lukacs added beam to what has so far been a one-event season for her, making it clear that the junior continues to progress on the comeback trail. Her classmate Mikayla Magee was once again absent on her typical events.

Records: Georgia junior Sterlyn Austin earned a career high score of 9.875 on floor. LSU senior Sarah Edwards earned a career high of 9.925 on floor, which was good enough for her first career event title.

Controversies: Many were surprised when Haleigh Bryant’s seemingly low-deduction floor routine earned a 9.850. One possible explanation, as astutely pointed out by former UC Davis assistant coach Carolyn Kampf, is an obscure UTL rule that requires a series to have three elements. Each of Bryant’s passes technically only have two elements each.

The event is finished.
