โ€œUnfortunately, we did let that last rotation slip away,โ€ said first-year Utah State head coach Kristin White. โ€œWe were on the verge of having a great 196 meet and at the end of the day, weโ€™ve got to be mentally tough and put four events together onย Friday night every single time. We just didnโ€™t do that.โ€ย 

Utah State Sets Two-Season Event Highs

Senior gymnast Alivia Ostendorf picked up her first individual title when she tied for first on the floor routine with a career-high 9.925.

โ€œI had a good routine last week and I didnโ€™t get the score I necessarily wanted, so I knew I could do it again,โ€ Ostendorf said. โ€œI was just wanting to lift up the floor score after a couple of mistakes, but I was just excited to get out there and do it for my team.โ€ย 

Junior Brianna Brooks finished with the best all-around score for the second-straight week with a career best 39.200. Brooks tied for fourth on the vault (9.850), finished third on bars (9.875), finished the beam tied for eighth (9.675), and eighth on floor with a career-best 9.800.

โ€œWe started off pretty well and with a lot of energy,โ€ Ostendorf said. โ€œWe had some ups and downs during the meet, but we kept it pretty consistent. I am really proud of this team. We did well, but we can always do better. Iโ€™m excited to come out next weekend at home and show them what we can do because we can do way better than this.โ€


Utah State opens a two-meet homestand on Friday, Feb. 10, at 7 p.m. when it welcomes Boise State to the Spectrum in a rematch of the previous week’s action.ย ย
