Air Force at California


Full Results California: 195.750 Air Force: 188.950
VT: George, Sadighi 9.825 UB: Schank 9.900 BB: George 9.875 FX: George 9.875 AA: George 39.375

The Big Storyline: California debuted with a solid performance, hitting 24-for-24 routines. The Golden Bears, however, lacked some training, as they struggled with polish and endurance here and there. Air Force had a bad meet, putting up only five scores on floor despite a fall and continuing to struggle on bars. Tyler Davis’ absence was very much felt.

Implications: California starts its 2021 campaign ranked No. 19 while Air Force sits at No. 49, only ahead of Bowling Green, which did not compete full lineups this week.

Controversies: The judges seemed to struggle with California’s start values on floor. A few routines had only two tumbling passes, making leap and jump rotation key for earning a 10.0 start value.


Current Rankings: No. 47 Air Force at California

Why You Should Clear Space on Your DVR: This may not be the most competitive meet, but all eyes will be on California in its season opener as expectations are high for the Golden Bears this year. A highly anticipated freshman class joins a large and experienced roster of returnees that will look to start the 2021 campaign off strong at home. Air Force will be hoping to put up a competitive score after stumbling in its first two meets of the season.

You Can Fast Forward, but not Through This: Make sure you don’t miss the debuts of California freshmen Andrea Li and Gabby Perea. Both have the potential to contend for best freshman in the country, and the Golden Bears have the benefit of having them both on their team in addition to senior all arounder Kyana George. Falcons sophomore Briona Carswell has been a bright spot on beam, having scored in the 9.8s twice, the only Air Force gymnast to score that high this season.

The event is finished.
