The Scratch List from U.S. Championships

With the release of an updated start list from USA Gymnastics, The Gymternet has learned of several early scratches for the 2014 P&G Championships.

Updated August 20, 1:44 pm

Rachel Gowey fractured her ankle on her triple full dismount from beam and has withdrawn from the meet.

Brenna Dowell will compete only on bars, likely due to a nagging ankle injury. Madison Kocian and Rachel Gowey have scratched vault and floor. Kocian injured her ankle on floor at the 2013 P&G Championships and seemed to have aggravated it at this year’s Secret U.S. Classic after a fall on beam. Gowey missed last season due to a back injury, so this could be a possible reason for sticking to only two events this year.

As of today, only eight senior gymnasts will compete in the all-around.

Grace Quinn, a junior, will compete only on beam and floor.

Peyton Ernst of Texas Dreams has withdrawn from the P&G Championships due to a minor nagging injury. It’s possible she will still petition to the World Championships selection camp.

As of August 14

Junior Rachel Baumann of WOGA will no longer be attending the meet due to an arm injury. All other juniors who qualified into the meet will attend, except of course for Bailie Key, who withdrew earlier this week to prevent future injury to her elbow.

There have been more changes in the senior division, as Emily Schild has thought it best for her to take this year off. Additionally, at this moment, three in the now field of fifteen will not compete in the all-around, including Felicia Hano, Nica Hults, and Ashton Locklear, all of whom will mirror their appearances at the U.S. Classic.

By not competing on bars at the U.S. Classic, Hano could only qualify to Championships on three events, which explains why we won’t see her compete in the all-around next week. Hults qualified as an all-arounder at the ranch earlier this year, but will compete only on bars due to a minor nagging hip injury. Finally, Locklear will stick to bars and beam, events on which she hopes to medal in Pittsburgh with the hope of making the World Championship team later this fall.

  1. This is really going to bother me that they didn’t take one of the beam-starters and put on vault first rotation- I have a geometry brain!


  2. Ashton only qualified on UB/BB, right? Wonder if she still trains FX/VT. Only FX I can find from her is from the WOGA classic in 2012.

    At least now the whole Nica-not-competing thing is settled. That was a fun news night.

  5. At this rate this post needs to be stickied at the top of the list or something. Wonder how many girls will be left by the actual competition.
