The Big Storyline: Lindenwood went near-49 on bars and floor while SEMO struggled to hit its stride.
Implications: Lindenwood will continue to sit atop the MIC and USAG rankings, distancing itself from the rest of the competition. Vault is still an area that could be suspect at times, but bars is much improved. Gayla Griswold figured out the Yurchenko one and a half again this week, so hopefully nailing the landing will come in the near future. SEMO’s floor performance was lights out, but that could not undo the mistakes counted on the other events. In general, the Redhawks seemed to be lacking confidence throughout the meet. Injuries and lack of depth are interfering with SEMO’s success thus far this season. The situation might be rectifiable if the Redhawks can find a consistent vault lineup. Bright spots right now are the consistency of freshman Lindsay Ockler and Kaziska’s floor work.
Records: Hannah Appleget’s 9.850 was a new career high.
Controversies: Some scoring at this meet was loose, but at least it was consistent?
