New Hampshire and Towson at LIU
|Full Results||Towson: 196.150||UNH: 195.300||LIU: 190.450|
|VT: Vitoff 9.900||UB: Titarsolej, Zuhlke 9.900||BB: Lui 9.875||FX: Kelley 9.875||AA: Bolen 39.125|
The Big Storyline: It was a much-improved performance from LIU on vault and bars, but the Sharks once again struggled on beam, having to count three falls. Mara Titarsolej finally made her debut and scored a 9.900 on bars, giving LIU its first ever event win. Towson scored its second 196 of the season, matching its season high from two weeks ago. New Hampshire also matched its season high.
Implications: NQS finally kicks in this week. With two 196s already and several low scores still to drop, Towson is in a good position with its NQS. The Tigers have not qualified to regionals since 2000. New Hampshire seems to have found its groove, but it will need to improve on its current numbers if there is any hope of qualifying to regionals.
Records: Titarsolej’s 9.900 on bars is LIU’s first program event win and sets a new program record. Towson’s 49.250 on vault is the highest score in program history. Camille Vitoff’s 9.900 and Jenna Weitz’s 9.875 on vault were career highs. Towson has not beat New Hampshire since 2004.
