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

Summary

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

Cristal Isa: 9.850

Grace McCallum: 9.950

Summary

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

Hadley Roberts: 9.800

Skylar Kilough-Wilhelm: 9.850

Lana Navarro: 9.850

Amara Cunningham: 9.875

Thu Nguyen: 9.825

Summary

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
