The Big Storyline: West Chester swept past Ursinus with a nearly 13-point margin after the Bears struggled to fill their lineups due to protocols and injuries.
Implications: A meeting of two teams across conferences, Ursinus will be most hurt in its respective standings in the NCGA after dropping five points this week following its opening score last weekend of 185.825. The Owls found beam to be the biggest challenge, scoring a 44.050, counting just a single score over a 9.000. Floor proved to pose another challenge, as they scored just over 1.500 over the previous week, missing Lindsay Thornton and Taylor Cusick’s strong floor routines this matchup. West Chester continued to improve its season, most likely continuing to secure its second place in the GEC, scoring a season-high, improving on most events, allowing just a tenth difference on beam, but losing five tenths on floor, but still its second-best showing on the event so far this season and counting not a single score under 9.625.
Records: West Chester scored a season-high of 193.125, as Golden Rams Jessica Meakim tied her career high on vault with a 9.800, and Lily McFarland set several career highs with a 9.725 on vault, 9.800 on beam and 9.750 on floor. Hyla Betts swung her way to a personal best of 9.700.
