Pittsburgh at Texas Woman’s
|Full Results||Pittsburgh: 195.575||Texas Woman’s: 192.925|
|VT: Emerson Adams 9.800||UB: Hallie Copperwheat 9.850||BB: Hallie Copperwheat 9.875||FX: Mara Johnson 9.875||AA: Sidney Washington 39.250|
The Big Storyline: Pittsburgh secured the win with its highest beam score in program history while Texas Woman’s stellar 49-plus floor rotation helped it to put the mistakes of bars and beam behind it.
Implications: TWU has not quite escaped its bars and beam woes from years past. This young team has not quite figured out how to completely bounce back from a fall within the rotation. The Pioneers’ vault and floor lineups will help to keep them in the hunt for now, but without five hit routines on the other events, it will be difficult to keep up with the top USAG teams. Freshmen Emerson Adams and Sierra Muns have proven to be integral players in TWU’s success so far this season. Consistency across the board will ultimately determine the Pioneer’s fate. Pittsburgh became just the third team in the EAGL to eclipse 195 this season. Hopefully the Panthers will be able to carry this momentum in the coming meets and continue to move up the conference ranks. However, consistently staying in the 195-plus scoring range has been a struggle the last few seasons. Perhaps the additions of big scorers like Hallie Copperwheat and Sidney Washington will finally put Pittsburgh over the edge.
Records: Mara Johnson bettered her floor career high for the second time this season with a 9.875 while teammate Sierra Muns upped hers to a 9.850. Senior Domi Bonzagni tied her floor career high with a 9.800. Emerson Adams proved herself to be “Miss Consistent” on vault, earning her second 9.800 in the last three weeks. Emily Six’s 9.725 on beam earned her a career high as well.
