Red Rocks Improve NQS, Come Up Short To Oregon State

Mar 11, 2023, 4:58 PM

CORVALLIS, OR – The Red Rocks came up short on the road against Oregon State Saturday afternoon 197.950-197.700.

Utah suffered once again from nerves on vault, but perhaps most shocking was an uncharacteristic fall on beam for Maile O’Keefe on a dance element.

The Red Rocks are now in a four-way tie for regular-season champs with Oregon State, UCLA, and Cal. Utah did improve their NQS score, though they will be passed by UCLA and fall to No. 5 in next week’s poll.

Utah will look to regroup and try to win the Pac-12 Title outright in the Pac-12 Championship Meet at the Maverik Center on March 18 in West Valley, Utah.
