The Big Storyline: In each school’s first meet of the season, California barely edged out Stanford despite a career day from Kyla Bryant. Nevaeh DeSouza and Andi Li led the way for the Golden Bears with 39.475 and 39.425 in the all-around, respectively, with each of them taking home an event title as well. Bryant won four events for Stanford, who exceed the expectations of many in this performance.
Implications: After missing the postseason as a team in 2021, Stanford sits in 13th in the rankings to start the season while California comes in at 11th.
Records: Bryant now leads the nation in all-around average after notching new career highs in the all around and on bars. California’s team total is the best opening meet score in program history.
Controversies: After the meet initially finished tied, Maya Bordas’ floor score was raised by 0.050 to ultimately give California the victory.
