The Big Storyline: Ties are rare in NCAA gymnastics, but Temple and Pitt both received identical scores of 194.525. Temple bounced back from a rough outing on bars with a huge 49.200 on beam, the second highest score in program history. Pitt had a much improved meet from last week, but a few low counted scores held the Panthers back.
Implications: Both teams will move up a bit in the rankings—Pitt to No. 46 and Temple to No. 41. Temple will also pass New Hampshire in the EAGL rankings.
Records: Julianna Roland’s 9.900 on vault tied her career high (scored while she was at Bridgeport) and also tied the Temple program record from 1996. Temple’s 49.200 on beam is the second-highest score in program history, just 0.025 off the record. Ariana Castrence’s 9.900 on beam was also a career high.
Controversies: The meet ended in a tie, and it took forever for the final scores to be announced, as both teams wanted to make sure everything was scored correctly. In the end, nothing was changed and the tie was made official.
