What a chill day of gymnastics we had yesterday. Oklahoma and Michigan both counted falls on multiple events, and I still say there was something wrong with that floor at Michigan. (#WheresBart) And UCLA hasn’t even gone yet.
Lowering blood pressure right now: Some of those Arkansas vault scores yesterday were in fact scoreboard errors and the real scores were more normal. And the Olivia Dunne bars score was more normal than I originally thought upon watching the replay. Cling to the little things.
The premier meet of the entire weekend starts us off today as Minnesota and Michigan contend for national “we’re better than you” status. After that, I’ll make a point of following Oklahoma pretty closely since I know fewer people have access to watch that one on a subscription stream.
Bev’s mask sparkles are all of them. Because when I think of glitz, I think of Bev Plocki.
Heiskell – VT – Michigan – already identified as Lexi Montgomery – Bridget thinks she fell last week (that was bars) – pretty full, near stick, smallest slide back, not the most distance, but pretty much as clean as she can go. 9.875
Links will continue to be added as they become available.
Starting their seasons this weekend will be UCLA, Washington, West Virginia, Arizona, New Hampshire, Central Michigan, North Carolina, Northern Illinois, Ball State, Western Michigan, and Illinois State. Centenary has withdrawn from Friday’s Tennessee Classic.
#15 Iowa State is idle.
**Bowling Green won’t have enough gymnasts to compete for a team score.
This week, we had zero 10s. Are the judges…chilling? (I do say the silliest things sometimes.) For the top scores of week 2, I’m looking at the routines that got a 10 from one judge, or a consensus 9.950 from both judges. Have at it.
