The Big Storyline: New Hampshire’s big score was just what the team needed as it coasts toward the end of the season, bouncing back to nearly score a season high on bars while notching its second 49 of the season on beam and finding consistency in its floor lineups. Temple struggled on vault, with just one vault over a 9.800 and several uncharacteristic low bar scores. However, the team answered its own struggles with a season high on beam and tying its high on floor. West Chester’s consistency kept the team afloat after struggling on bars, dropping into the low 47s for the third time this season, forced to count several scores under a 9.475.
Implications: New Hampshire’s second highest score of the season gave it a much-needed boost into second in the EAGL conference, now just a few tenths away from first place Towson, proving that the Wild Cats still aren’t to be counted out. The team sits in 46th place overall, less than six tenths away from the regionals bubble. Towson finds itself in 24th as of now, with the pressure on to keep that momentum going as it moves further toward the postseason. West Chester will stay firmly in third place in the GEC, with Penn and Yale continuing the hold strong in first and second places, respectively. To unseat Yale would require some big scores for the rest of the season.
Records: New Hampshire’s Summer Simpkin’s scored a personal best 9.850 on beam, as well as Sierra Bauman with a 9.825. Gracy Mowers pocketed a 9.875 career high on floor and Mariella Miele bested a 9.825 on vault. Temple broke the previous team beam score with a 49.325 and tied the record on floor, a 49.375. Brooke Donabedian tied the floor record with a 9.950, a 22-year-old record. West Chester’s Jordan Coleman scored a new career high 9.775 on bars. Natalie Marshall tied her career high with a 9.825.
