By a score of 421.55-405.6, the Cardinal took care of business Saturday night against Minnesota. "With Modi, Neff and Breckenridge only going on a couple events each, I thought as a team they worked well to show there is some depth," commented head coach Thom Glielmi.
Senior Jordan DeClerk was one who stood out, setting season-highs on SR (14.75) and PB (14.75) and contributing a 14.2 on FX. "Jordan is steady and he knows how the season runs," Glielmi said. "He is an example of how to stay on track, be prepared and execute. It's how we want all our competitors to be and I can say all our seniors possess these qualities."
With the Sooners coming to town next week, Stanford knows that the standard for what is considered a 'hit routine' needs to be raised. Glielmi simply stated, "I expect them to go 30 for 30."
As for the Gophers, it wasn't the meet they were hoping for following a season-high 417.2 performance two weeks ago. PH and HB stuck out in Saturday's meet, both with scores a shade under 63. Both events will be better, but it's a perfect example of how five-up/five-count can jump up and bite you.
A good sign for Minnesota was the return of Zach Liebler who scored a 14.7 on VT in his first action in about a month.
