Hit middle pass and then her 1.5 to front lay with a step out into arabesque to finish. Sobbing, obviously. Not a 10.0 routine technically, but a 10.0 moment for her, and one judge who ignored the multiple hops gave it a 10 anyway LOL.

10:43 pm. YESSSSSS MYKAYLA GOT THE 10!!!!!!!! FINALLY. And instead of showing us her reaction they’re showing us the little girl spinning the 10 around.

Tai, Stanford, BB- Bhs loso bhs landed basically on her crotch but not quite. Fall. Switch to straddle 3/4. At least she’s last up and they won’t count it. They went 196.275, by the way! Just shy of the season best. 1.5 with a hop to finish.

10:40 pm. Skinner, Utah, FX- Putting her fifth instead of last tonight so Baely can sob for 15 hours at the end of what is sure to be a 10 if all goes according to plan.

Solid bhs loso, and the rest is good, including a great 1.5 dismount.

10:20 pm. Utah is at 147.825 after a poopy beam and Stanford is at a 147.325 after probably the best floor rotation of the season. Too bad they didn’t have a sixth girl to get rid of one of the 9.7-range scores! But yeah, who would’ve thought the meet would be within five tenths?! Good on Stanford.

10:14 pm. Rowe, Utah, BB- Switch to straddle side, flexed feet on the straddle. Bhs bhs loso with a wobble. THIS IS YOUR NIGHT, STOP GIVING AWAY YOUR 10. Full turn. 1.5 with a hop. Still an excellent routine and she’s sobbing LOLOL SAVE IT FOR AFTER FLOOR ugh Baely.

10:10 pm. Lee, Utah, BB- Great bhs loso, switch to straddle jump, a big wobble on an aerial, as good as Stanford’s floor is going, Utah’s beam is about the opposite of what we usually see from them. Hit the double full though, and really, a nice save on that bobble like everyone else with big saves tonight.

10:09 pm. Daum, Stanford, FX- Great double pike, 1.5 to front layout, solid double tuck. This looks like a whole new Stanford on floor!

10:06 pm. Skinner, Utah, BB- Let’s go Miley Cyrus. Solid bhs loso, side aerial to sissone, hit leap series, slow and steady full L turn, oh my god, she wobbles out of her straddle jump to back tuck and then goes from wobbling into hilarious arm choreo with a big smile on her face, BLESS HER HEART, that was adorable. Double tuck is a little low.

10:04 pm. N Hoffman, Stanford, FX- Double tuck, a little crooked. Front full to what I think was supposed to be a front lay but her knees end up tucking a bit. Hit the last pass, I think a 1.5 to front pike.

9:47 pm. Rowe, Utah, UB- Giant full to Tkachev, bail, double layout with a hop back.

9:46 pm. Price, Stanford, VT- HOLY CRAP MONSTER. BALLER ass FTY. Stuck. COLD. Gets a perfect 9.95 from one judge.

Okay so all of the Red Rocks have a single weird glove on and I was like wtf nonsense is this but I realized it was the Michael Jackson look for Baely Rowe’s senior night.

7:22 pm. Gillette, WVU, UB- Hit release and pak, giant full to double tuck, stuck.

Anderson, Arkansas, VT- Messy FTY with a wonky landing.

7:21 pm. Laymon, Pitt, BB- Floaty bhs loso with a step back, cat leap to switch side, gainer pike with a step.

Yamzon, Arkansas, VT- Solid FTY piked down a bit, good enough.

Coca, Kentucky, UB- Hit routine, full-in stuck cold to finish!

7:20 pm. Rathjen, Arkansas, VT- Decent FTY.


Carlisle, Kentucky, UB- Jaeger, hit dismount.

7:16 pm. Koshinski got a 9.95 for her 1.5 on vault!

West Virginia picks up the lead at 97.9 followed by Pittsburgh with 97.65, Michigan State with 97.35, and Towson with 97.3.

7:14 pm. Close in Kentucky right now, with them at 49.0 and Arkansas at 48.925. Arkansas’ head coach said their goal is to “have five gymnasts up on each event” tonight so…yeah, that’s rough. They seem okay with bars and beam but I’m worried about vault and floor. They’ve lost 11 routines due to injury so far this season.

7:11 pm. Korth, Kentucky, VT- Huge 1.5 but you can tell she wants to stick it, though she’s a little too squatted to do so, and has to stumble back a couple of steps.

Deans, MSU, FX- Double layout, front tuck through to double tuck, great landings on both. They cut away before her last pass.

Last up for Arkansas on bars was good, just a few small form issues and her chest down on the double tuck dismount.

7:09 pm. Stuart, Kentucky, VT- FTY, a little form break.

MacMoyle, Arkansas, UB- Clear hip to huge Tkachev, short bail, double layout with a bobble on the landing.

7:08 pm. Dukes, Kentucky, VT- Solid Yurchenko layout half.

Speed, Arkansas, UB- I missed most of this but it was a beautiful routine from what I did see.

The male Kentucky commentator just said “Generating speed is so crucial to getting off.” ????????

7:06 pm. Davis, Kentucky, VT- Big and clean FTY! Beautiful.

Yamzon, Arkansas, UB- Clear hip to Tkachev, good, bail, a little short in her handstands, short full-twisting double layout with a hop.

Peele, Pitt, UB- Front giant half to big Tkachev, double layout.

7:04 pm. Hall, Pitt, UB- Gienger, a little too far away. Misses the catch.

Rosa, Kentucky, VT- FTY, very nice. Superb landing.

Garner, Arkansas, UB- Giant full to super clean Gienger to overshoot, good handstand before giants to full-in with a step back.

7:03 pm. Anderson, Arkansas, UB- Jaeger, bail, good handstands, giant full to double tuck with a hop back.

7:02 pm. Hyland, Kentucky, VT- Hit FTY.


Hoyer, MSU, FX- Rudi was awkward and short.

7:00 pm. Hoerner-O’Malley, MSU, FX- Short on double tuck last pass but otherwise good


Collins, Pitt, UB- Long wait for her. Short handstand before big Gienger (messy legs but not really separated), clear hip to bail, her feet are weird in this whole routine, like…flexed maybe? Giant full with leg sep to double tuck with her chest down.

Throwing Kentucky and Arkansas in!

6:58 pm. Pearson, Pitt, UB- Super aggressive swing, big Gienger with big leg sep, front giant half to bail (short with leg sep), giant full to double tuck, stuck.

6:52 pm. West Virginia moved up to tie Michigan State at 48.75. There was some confusion with Muhammad’s floor…one judge gave her a 9.85 and the other gave her a 9.65. Her score ended up getting bumped from a 9.75 average to a 9.775. To me there’s a HUGE difference between a 9.85 routine and a 9.65 routine so I know the margin of error for judges is two tenths but when most routines get fewer than two tenths in deductions, that seems a little wide, no?

6:51 pm. Pittsburgh leads 48.95 with Michigan State at 48.75, West Virginia at 48.725, and Towson at 48.275.

6:48 pm. Douglas, MSU, BB- Good start, solid bhs loso, illusion turn with a little bobble, side aerial to layout full with a good landing and I think they won’t have to count the fall.

6:47 pm. Koshinski, WVU, FX- They didn’t show her first pass but it sounded hit (#YELLING) and I think she does a double lay, and she hit her second pass, I think 1.5 to punch front layout. Double pike to finish.

6:45 pm. Westney, MSU, BB- Full spin, beautiful bhs loso, good side aerial, beautiful scale! Switch leap to split jump. Her flexibility is BRILLIANT. Full Y turn. DAMN. Stuck gainer layout. That was a ROUTINE.


6:44 pm. Muhammad, WVU, FX- I missed her first pass but from what I could see, it looked hit. Ooh, great jump series, I think split full to straddle full to wolf full! #Dizzy Front tuck through to double tuck, a little short on the landing.


6:43 pm. Shirley, MSU, BB- Switch, beat jump to stag, hit the rest, including gainer full dismount.

6:42 pm. Cluchey, WVU, FX- Opens with a solid double pike. Hit middle pass and 1.5 to front layout to finish.

6:40 pm. Frederick, MSU, BB- Cat leap to switch side, misses her foot, stumbles and falls. Gainer front tuck off the end.

Herbine, Pitt, VT- Yurchenko layout half, good and clean.

6:39 pm. Oscar, Pitt, VT- FTY, more piking and other leg form issues in the air.


Cumber, WVU, FX- Good double pike.

Pearson, Pitt, VT- FTY, leg sep as she popped off the table, huge in the air though!

6:37 pm. Gillette, WVU, FX- Good double pike. Solid double tuck!

Spivey, Pitt, VT- FTY, not the cleanest. Big lunge back.

Howery hit beam for Michigan State.

6:36 pm. Collins, Pittsburgh, VT- FTY, also a little piked but great landing.



6:35 pm. West, Pittsburgh, VT- FTY a bit piked with a couple of steps back.

This is gonna be a super Pittsburgh-heavy feed, just FYI, but I’ll try to catch whatever I can.

Hit bars for Towson’s Harada, including a stuck dismount.


6:34 pm. Starting the meet with the Pitt quad!
