|VT: Brooke Alban 9.825||UB: Clara Hong 9.825||BB: Rachel Hornung 9.850||FX: Abbie Pierson, Kiana Lewis 9.900||AA: Rachel Hornung 39.100|
The Big Storyline: West Virginia struggled a bit through the meet, counting three falls on bars, but the William & Mary freshmen led the team, with Caroline Blatchford coming in fourth all-around, as Towson continues to dominate and defeated West Virginia for the first time since 2017. West Chester led the meet at the midpoint but couldn’t quite keep pace toward the end.
Implications: Despite coming in fourth, the Tribe freshmen have proven that they’re up for the challenge. Despite coming in third, West Chester posted the highest bars score the evening, a 48.125, and was the only team to break 48.000. Going forward, West Virginia can quickly get back on track by settling the nerves on bars, particularly when they host Big 12 champ Denver this coming weekend.
Records: Kiana Lewis tied her career best score on floor, where she also took first, McKenna Kissinger scored a career high with a 9.675 on vault, and Agatha Handono scored a career high on beam with a 9.675, as well.
