|Full Results||Northern Illinois: 196.300||Lindenwood: 193.625||UW-Whitewater: 192.225|
|VT: Griswold 9.825||UB: Hamp 9.925||BB: Al-Ashari 9.900||FX: Kofmehl 9.925||AA: Sears 39.125|
The Big Storyline: Lindenwood led Whitewater by just half a tenth after two rotations. The Warhawks posted a season high team score while Lindenwood managed a decent score despite counting a mistake on bars. Northern Illinois casually earned a season high of its own.
Implications: The top three NCGA teams are going to be in a tight race for No. 1. Whitewater will move into third place for now after posting the second highest score of any Division III team this season. Brockport is the front runner thus far. To keep up, Whitewater will need to replicate this performance meet after meet. Lindenwood’s performance tonight will have little effect on its season average, but its top ranking should be safe for the time being. However, with Air Force hot on its tail, Lindenwood will need to pick it back up to the 195 range.
Records: Northern Illinois’ 196.300 is its highest score in program history. Richella Velarmino of Whitewater posted a 9.825 on bars for a new career high.
