Ivy Classic


Full Results Brown: 195.200 Penn: 194.875 Yale: 193.675 Cornell: 193.400
VT: Bedell, 9.850 UB: Walker, 9.950 BB: M. Marr, 9.850 FX: Bedell, 9.925 AA: Beers, 38.950

The Big Storyline: Penn was the easy pick to win going into the Ivy Classic. However, the same could be said last year when Yale won. With the win, Brown put itself in the books with the second best team score in program history. 

Implications: Previous to last week, neither Brown nor Cornell had an NQS. Despite a strong average, Brown slides into third in the USAG with the NQS at play. Despite a nearly record-breaking performance, Brown is up against a feisty yet more consistent Yale—but only five-hundredths separates them. Cornell certainly did itself some favors with a big showing too. The Big Red may not have set any season highs, but it was the third meet in a row it went better than 193. Yale, Brown, and Cornell all find themselves in the top eight teams in the USAG, with Yale making an excellent argument to make the team final at nationals.

Records: Julia Bedell tied the program record on floor for Brown with a 9.925 for the second time this season. Raegan Walker tied Yale’s record on bars, her own, with a 9.950.


Current Rankings: No. 47 Penn, No. 59 Yale, Cornell at Brown

Why You Should Make Time to Tune in: First of all, it’s the Ivy Classic! And these are some of the best teams in the GEC. Each program is smashing long-held records left and right. It’s a great preview of how these teams could finish the season.  

Need More Proof? Penn is the team to beat in the Ivy Classic. Despite Yale being the defending champ, it’s going to take a lot to eclipse Penn’s scores this season. And with how hot Penn has been looking, it’ll take several missteps by the Quakers to lose this year. Yale comes in as the strongest bars team today thanks to Raegan Walker at the helm. Cornell’s Sydney Beers is knocking down big score after big score; the sophomore will be a force for Penn to reckon with for individual titles. But don’t look away from Brown, which is inching closer and closer to a new floor record both as a team and with Julia Bedell as an individual.

The event is finished.
