Level 10 Nationals Day 2

First, a bit of news. Missouri has hired Shannon Welker from Michigan as the new head coach. Release

The Senior A and B divisions primarily feature gymnasts set to enter NCAA in a few seasons, so there’s only a limited amount of information we can take from JO results. Much can change over those years. The Senior C and D divisions are comprised mostly of gymnasts set to join NCAA teams in a few months, so these results are much more informative in terms of potential contributions, which can be evaluated based on teams’ weaknesses and losses after the 2013 season.

Full results can be found at meetscoresonline.

Senior C

Top 10 AA
T1. Kara Lovan – Oklahoma 2013-2014
38.200 (VT – 6th, UB – 1st, BB – 15th, FX – 7th)
Oklahoma’s incoming class is crazy good. Remember this. They won’t let Florida get away with counting a fall again.
T1. Baely Rowe – Utah 2013-2014
38.200 (VT – 4th, UB 4th, BB – 3rd, FX – 26th)
Methinks there’s a place for you in the beam lineup. A certain few of the Utes should send her a welcome muffin basket about their not having to compete beam anymore.
3. Myia Hambrick – LSU 2014-2015
38.175 (VT – 5th, UB – 20th, BB – 2nd, FX – 1st)
She’ll be entering in the class tasked with replacing the scores from Morrison, Dickson, and Mathis and will be a key contributor. She’s a Georgia-based gymnast electing to go to LSU. There were years back when that would have been a notable surprise.
4. McKenzie Wofford – Oklahoma 2013-2014
38.075 (VT – 20th, UB – 1st, BB – 4th, FX – 17th)
Wofford would have been favored to win this division given her previous elite success. She didn’t just compete elite as a second-tier athlete; for a second, she was in the conversation for team selection. If competing L10 now gives her a better chance to be healthy through NCAA, that’s the ultimate gem of college recruitment.
5. Samantha Nelson – Arkansas 2013-2014
37.925 (VT – 25th, UB – 14th, BB – 6th, FX – 3rd)
Arkansas has spot talent in the younger classes but definitely needs an infusion of multiple-event gymnasts to help support the upperclassmen.
T6. Pua Hall – UCLA 2014-2015
37.850 (VT – 1st, UB – 17th, BB – 8th, FX – 34th)
A strong result for the future Bruin, but she’s still a year away. She’ll be in the class coming in after Courtney and Sawa leave, so the 9.800 vault is something to keep an eye on. I recall she had nice power but some leg form on vault back when she competed a 1.5 as an elite.
T6. Gigi Marino
37.850 (VT – 2nd, UB – 37th, BB – 15th, FX – 10th)
8. Courtney Bisbe – NC State 2013-2014
37.750 (VT – 16th, UB – 8th, BB – 15th, FX – 17th)
9. Nicole Medvitz – Penn State 2013-2014
37.725 (VT – 44th, UB – 4th, BB 1st, FX – 22nd)
10. Caroline Morant – Brown 2013-2014
37.700 (VT – 12th, UB – 12th, BB – 23rd, FX – 15th)
 
Notables
Talia Chiarelli – Michigan 2013-2014
VT – 10th, BB – 4th, FX – 3rd (Top 10 on vault, beam, and floor, 49th on bars. Is that on the seal of Brestyan’s? Brestyan’s: 1st in friendship, 49th on bars.)

Meghan Pflieger – New Hampshire 2013-2014
BB – 9th FX – 3rd
Tiffany Henry 
UB – 8th, BB – 6th
Katie Bailey – Alabama 2013-2014
VT – 6th, BB – 9th 
Desiree Palomares – Cal 2013-2014
VT – 10th, UB – 7th
Elena Lagoski – Michigan State 2013-2014
FX – 1st
Chelsea Raineri – Iowa State 2013-2014
VT – 2nd
Sasha Sander – Missouri 2013-2014
UB – 3rd
Tracey Person
FX – 3rd 
Alexa Goldberg – West Virginia 2013-2014
UB – 4th
Paige Urquhart – Boise State 2013-2014
VT – 6th
April Baker- Rutgers 2013-2014
FX – 7th
Mackenzie Myers – West Virginia 2013-2014
FX – 7th
Reagan Hemry – Oklahoma 2013-2014
UB – 8th
Olivia O’Connor – Williams & Mary 2013-2014
UB – 8th
Mary Sanders
VT – 9th
Ashley Potts 
BB – 9th
Paris Ryder – Arkansas 2013-2014
BB – 9th
Jordan Hardison – Kent State 2013-2014
FX – 10th

Senior D

Top 10 AA
1. Kaytianna McMillan – Oregon State 2013-2014
38.500 (VT – 2nd, UB – 14th, BB – 1st, FX – 4th)
Over the last two seasons, the Beavers have lost, well, everybody. They will need McMillan to contribute everywhere right away to somehow help make up for the loss of scoring potential after Stambaugh and Jones.
2. Ashleigh Gnat – LSU 2013-2014
38.475 (VT – 1st, UB – 3rd, BB – 23rd, FX – 1st)
I know, an LSU gymnast who won vault and floor: groundbreaking. They really are beefing up the talent pool, though. A young team that’s bringing in more young, multi-event contributors.
3. Nicolette McNair
38.425 (VT – 4th, UB – 1st, BB – 14th, FX – 16th)
4. Rachel Haines – Minnesota 2013-2014
38.225 (VT – 12th, UB – 8th, BB – 9th, FX – 4th)
With a batch of standout L10s coming over the next two seasons, Minnesota is seriously fighting against being a one-season wonder. Every one of them, including Haines, placed the best on floor, and we would expect nothing different.
5. Tenille Funches – Ohio State 2013-2014
38.150 (VT – 9th, UB – 6th, BB – 5th, FX – 23rd)
Wins the great name award of the session. She placed the best on bars and beam but scored the best on vault, where the Buckeyes will need her next year. They were way too 9.7y this year on vault, especially away.
6. Erin Buchanan – Illinois 2013-2014
38.000 (VT – 21st, UB – 8th, BB – 14th, FX – 12th)
7. Mackenzie Valentin – Arizona 2013-2014
37.925 (VT – 3rd, UB – 19th, BB – 32nd, FX – 4th)
8. Charly Santagado – Rutgers 2013-2014
37.875 (VT – 32nd, UB – 6th, BB – 19th, FX – 8th)
9. Amanda Wellick – Arkansas 2013-2014
37.850 (VT – 5th, UB – 8th, BB – 33rd, FX – 10th)
10. Nicolette Swoboda – West Virginia 2013-2014
37.800 (VT – 21st, UB – 19th, BB – 23rd, FX – 12th)

Notables
Rachel Daum – Stanford 2013-2014
VT – 5th, UB – 2nd, FX – 10th (She wins the “beam disaster but watch out for this one” award of the session.)
Mary Jane Rott – Auburn 2013-2014
BB – 1st, FX – 3rd
Ashley Lambert – Nebraska 2013-2014
BB – 1st, FX – 4th

  1. By your count which schools had the best outing, top-to-bottom? JO success doesn't always translate to NCAA success but it often is a sign of things to come. I'd love to read some of your analysis about (NCAA) teams that overperformed and teams that underperformed.
