Nebraska at Iowa State
|Full Results||Nebraska 194.425||Iowa State: 194.350|
|VT: Roby 9.800||UB: Davis 9.825||BB: Semple 9.800||FX: Cooke, Diab 9.900||AA: Spence 38.875|
The Big Storyline: It was a close meet throughout, but the Huskers pulled out the victory despite a shaky beam rotation. Both teams were about a point off their opening meet scores from last year, with Nebraska a point higher and Iowa State a point lower.
Implications: This meet showed Iowa State might not be set up for the type of season its roster is capable of. Addy De Jesus only competed one event and appears to have a heavily wrapped knee. It will be a huge loss for the team if she’s not able to do the all around for much of the season. The Cyclones also announced several season-ending injuries that will affect depth on some events. The Huskers look stronger than last season, and freshman Emma Spence will be a great addition. Still, they lack the polish of previous squads and could have trouble in the Big Ten this season.
Records: Laura Cooke won the floor title with a career high 9.900.
Controversies: Iowa State originally scored 194.450, enough to win the meet, but received a one-tenth deduction for competing out of order on floor, resulting in a second-place finish. A heartbreaking way to open the 2022 season.
