Ivy Classic

For a small fee, international viewers can watch the meet here.


Full Results Yale: 195.050 Pennsylvania: 194.125 Brown: 192.250 Cornell: 191.625
VT: Chia 9.825 UB: Costa, Kuhn 9.900 BB: Walker 9.900 FX: Chia 9.875 AA: Chia 39.150

The Big Storyline: Yale went over 49 on beam for the first time this season thanks to a duo of 9.875s from Lindsay Chia and Kendal Toy, along with an event-winning 9.900 from Raegan Walker. Yale also brought out a full lineup of twisting vaults for the first time this season. Across the board, the Bulldogs brought a calm consistency that has been lacking in previous meets. Penn started the Ivy Classic in a bit of a hole after counting a fall in the first rotation on floor. The bar squad brought it home with a meet best 49.000, but it was too late to catch the Bulldogs. Brown put together the best vault rotation on the day, but beam struggles kept the Bears from contending at the end of the meet. Cornell also was forced to count a fall in the first rotation. There were bright spots throughout each rotation for the Big Red, but it was unable to put everything together today. 

Implications: With a win today, Yale proved that Penn will not be a guaranteed victor of the GEC conference championship. Although the Quakers have been leading the pack all season, it will take a hit on all four events to stay ahead of the Bulldogs. Overall, there will be no changes in the conference standings this week. Yale nearly overtook Air Force in the USAG standings, but a second 194-plus on the weekend saved the Falcons from losing the third spot. On the bright side, counting a 190 in the Bulldogs’ NQS will be a thing of the past. Brown and Cornell both fell victim to a balance beam situation, so neither could put up a real challenge in this competition. However, both teams will be happy to be rid of the 188s from their season openers. There’s more distance between these teams and Southern Connecticut at the moment, hopefully assuring a nationals berth.

The event is finished.
