The Big Storyline: UC Davis hosted Michigan State and Sacramento State in its season opener. This was the first meet in two years for both the Aggies and the Hornets, and the Spartans’ first meet since February 2021. 

Implications: The Spartans didn’t show any signs of rust as they casually earned the third-highest Big Ten score of the week. Former five-star recruit Skyla Schulte impressed with a cool 39.125 in her collegiate debut. A tough bars rotation kept UC Davis from challenging the San Jose State Spartans for the top MPSF score, but its 49.250 on beam is the program’s best event total since 2018. Conference-mate Sacramento State also had a standout beam rotation, with 9.850-plus contributions from senior Amber Koeth and sophomore Simone Dumas-Guzman.

Records: Michigan State not only set a new season-opening record with its 195.875, but it tied Alabama and Utah State for the 11th best score of Week 1. 


Current Rankings: No. 36 Michigan State and Sacramento State at UC Davis

Why You Should Make Time to Tune in: This is our first look at Sacramento State and UC Davis since March 2020, meaning we get the debut of two full classes. Plus, we only saw the Spartans twice in 2021, and UW-Oshkosh only had four outings.

Need More Proof? Skyla Schulte, a former 5-star recruit, promises to bring big numbers to East Lansing. Don’t take your eyes off her debut. She joins sophomore Baleigh Garcia on the Spartans’ talented roster. Emma Otsu will finally take the floor for the Aggies; she’s a potential star for UC Davis.

The event is finished.
