|Full Results||Illinois State: 195.500||Lindenwood: 195.375||SEMO: 195.150|
|VT: Labat 9.900||UB: Doctor, Wojcik 9.850||BB: Kaziska 9.900||FX: Baze, Griswold, Kaziska, Solorzano-Caruso, Topp 9.900||AA: Labat 39.300|
The Big Storyline: Both USAG teams scored season highs and all three teams in attendance broke 195.000, typically the threshold of excellence at this level, at a thrilling final match-up before conference championships. Lindenwood’s vault lineup, a strength all year, set a season-high 49.175, and Lindenwood also produced a season high 49.200 on floor. SEMO’s 49.225 on floor for senior night was a season high and allowed the Redhawks to close out a meet that is one of the ten best in program history.
Implications: MIC Championships next Friday is going to be freaking TENSE. Any of these three teams or Texas Woman’s could realistically win. Lindenwood beam and SEMO vault have been weaknesses all year and those are the events that could lose the championship. Despite the monster score SEMO drops to No. 3 in USAG standings as Texas Woman’s drops a lower NQS score, while Lindenwood continues cruising at No. 1.
Records: Anna Kaziska’s 9.900 on beam is a personal best and fifth in program history, tied with teammate Dahlia Solorzano-Caruso amd coach Ashley Lawson. Anna Speller’s 9.875 on beam, Dahlia Solorzano-Caruso’s 9.900 on floor and Jordan Jones’ 9.875 on floor were also personal bests for SEMO. Lindenwood’s Gayla Griswold also set a career high of 9.900 on floor. SEMO’s team total is tenth-best in program history.
