No. 4 Red Rocks Handle Business At Home Against No. 25 Washinton

Jan 28, 2023, 2:47 PM

SALT LAKE CITY – After a rough first road outing against the No. 1 Oklahoma Sooners last week, the No. 4 Red Rocks returned to the Huntsman Center to host the No. 25 Washington Huskies.

The meet was never once in doubt as the Red Rocks put the Huskies on notice rather quickly there weren’t there to play games. A few season highs later, Utah walked away from the Huntsman Center victorious, 197.975- 196.350.

Rotation One: Utah Vault, UW Bars

Utah Vault: 49.425

Jaylene Gilstrap: 9.850

Abby Brenner: 9.850

Makenna Smith: 9.900

Jaedyn Rucker: 9.875

Grace McCallum: 9.850

Jillian Hoffman: 9.950


UW Bars: 49.000

Deiah Moody: 9.800

Taylor Russon: 9.800

Olivia Oppegard: 9.700

Brenna Brooks: 9.800

Lilly Tubbs: 9.700

Skylar Killough-Wilhelm: 9.900


The Red Rocks off to a great start after rotation one, lead the Huskies 49.425 – 49.000. Highlight on vault was Jillian Hoffman’s stuck 1.5. It’s the first time she’s competed that vault since coming back from injury last season.

Rotation Two: Utah Bars, UW Vault

UW Vault: 49.100

Total Score: 98.100

Kennedi Davis: 9.775

Brenna Brooks: 9.850

Lana Navarro: 9.825

Skylar Killough-Wilhelm: 9.825

Amara Cunningham: 9.825

Emily Innes: 9.775

Utah Bars: 49.450

Total Score: 98.975

Amelie Morgan: 9.850

Makenna Smith: 9.825

Abby Brenner: 9.850

Maile O’Keefe: 9.950

Cristal Isa: 9.850

Grace McCallum: 9.950


Another strong showing for the Red Rocks in rotation two with Maile O’Keefe and Grace McCallum being the stars of the show. There has been a pattern today of extreme discrepancies in how routines have been scored today. About three or four of Utah’s routines so far have had a tenth of a point difference between judges which is a lot. Example, one judge gave McCallum a 10, another a 9.900.

Rotation Three: Utah Beam, UW Floor

Utah Beam: 49.625

Total Score: 148.500

Amelie Morgan: 9.825

Grace McCallum: 9.900

Abby Paulson: 9.900

Kara Eaker: 9.900

Cristal Isa: 9.950

Maile O’Keefe: 9.975

UW Floor: 49.200

Total Score: 147.300

Emily Innes: 9.800

Hadley Roberts: 9.800

Skylar Kilough-Wilhelm: 9.850

Lana Navarro: 9.850

Amara Cunningham: 9.875

Thu Nguyen: 9.825


Another beautiful effort even with a few uncharacteristic mistakes from the Red Rocks on beam. Maile O’Keefe and Cristal Isa were absolutely exquisite to end the rotation. Utah heading into the fourth with a very comfortable lead.

Final Rotation: UW Beam, Utah Floor

UW Beam: 49.050

Final Score: 196.350

Brenna Brooks: 9.800

Taylor Russon: 9.325

Deiah Moody: 9.800

Lana Navarro: 9.900

Kennedi Davis: 9.875

Skylar Killough-Wilhelm: 9.675

Utah Floor: 49.475

Final Score: 197.975

Abby Paulson: 9.850

Jaylene Gilstrap: 9.875

Abby Brenner: 9.875

Makenna Smith: 9.800

Jaedyn Rucker: 9.925

Grace McCallum: 9.950


Best floor rotation the Red Rocks have probably had all season. Energy continued to build throughout with Rucker and McCallum finishing with the big scores.
