|VT: Emmalise Nock 9.900||UB: Jolie Miller 9.875||BB: Hadley Roberts 9.900||FX: Tara Kofmehl 9.900||AA: Hannah Moon 38.900|
The Big Storyline: SEMO improved over its season-opening score by nearly two points while Lindenwood bested itself by more than four.
Implications: The Tennessee Collegiate Classic did not offer live scoring or video, so it’s too soon to tell if the scoring was realistic or if Lindenwood’s 195-plus will be maintainable. However, this meet was on neutral territory, so it’s safe to say that the finishing order was correct. Lindenwood’s drastic improvement over last week proved that maybe the Lion’s season opener was just an off day. Simone Evans’ debut routine on floor and Kaylee Cooper’s first collegiate bar routine were just the boost the team needed. SEMO is still missing some key players in its lineups, but the Redhawks were able to put together a good score to build off of in the coming weeks. Anna Kaziska added her front double full back into her floor routine this week, which will be necessary for the big scores later in the season. Suspect that the rivalry between these teams will continue. They will battle it out again next weekend in Hyland Arena.
Records: SEMO notched three career highs on bars, including Lydia Webb’s 9.750, Lindsay Ockler’s 9.825 and Jolie Miller’s 9.875. Ockler also set a new career best on vault with a 9.825. Hadley Roberts put together the first 9.900 routine of her career on beam to lead the Lion’s effort to a 49.1 team total on the event. Hannah Moon notched her first career all around win with a 38.900. Emmalise Nock’s career high 9.900 on floor was enough to earn her the event win.
