USU gymnastics tri-meet vs NCSU and BGSUJanuary 13, 2017
The Aggies came out on top, defeating both North Carolina State and Bowling Green State with a final score of 195.400 — nearly four points better than the 191.600 the Aggies scored in Arizona last weekend.
“This isn’t even their best yet, so I’m just really excited because there are so many little things that they can do better. I’m proud of them for leaving the past behind them and just going out and doing their gymnastics the way that they can, and representing our school the way we want to," said Aggie head coach Nadalie Walsh.
Sophomore Emily Briones wowed the audience by winning the beam title, tying her career-high with a score of 9.875. Her teammate, sophomore Madison Ward tied her career-high on the floor with a 9.825 to grab the floor title.
“It was really satisfying to hit tonight,” Briones said. “Every single person on the team had hit before me, and then we just built off of each other, so it felt really good.”
The Aggies take on BYU Friday at 7 p.m. in Provo. The next home meet will be on Feb. 3, also against BYU.
