The Big Storyline: Season high scores highlighted a close one in Provo.
Implications: BYU strengthens its conference lead, but a strong road performance will bode well for Southern Utah as it inches closer to the top 16.
Records: Southern Utah’s 197.000 was a school record score for a road meet. The Thunderbirds’ 49.450 on bars to start the meet was also a school record. BYU’s Sadie Miner-Van Tassell scored a career high 39.525 in the all-around.
Current Rankings: No. 23 Southern Utah at No. 19 BYU
Why You Should Make Time to Tune in: We have another exciting MRGC meet! Last time these two teams met on Jan. 21, just a quarter-tenth ultimately separated them. This time home turf shifts to BYU, where the Cougars will hope to get the edge this time. It’s bound to be another close one!
Need More Proof? Southern Utah’s Shylen Murakami tied the MRGC and school bar record with a 9.975 last week. Her set is exquisite and one to watch. Similarly, BYU’s Anyssa Alvarado is stunning on bars; we should be in for a treat from both of those lineups. Both vault teams feature a variety of skills, though watch for Caitlin Kho’s (Southern Utah) and Sadie Miner-Van Tassell’s (BYU) Yurchenko one and a halves. Finally, BYU floor is always a treat—beyond the fun choreography, Miner-Van Tassell recently added a double layout back into her routine.
