Utah Gymnastics Recover At Best Of Utah Meet

Jan 15, 2024, 6:11 PM | Updated: Jan 16, 2024, 10:54 am

SALT LAKE CITY – After a disappointing outing against some of College Gymnastics’ best in the Sprouts Farmers Market, the Red Rocks were back in the Maverik Center for the Best of Utah Meet.

No. 25 SUU, USU and BYU all descended to West Valley to compete with the No. 5 Utes in the annual local showcase meet.

The Red Rocks were eager to recover their composure after a bad outing just two days earlier and they did exactly that.

One of the biggest recoveries of the day came for Red Rock star Maile O’Keefe who put up a 9.925 on bars, a 10 on beam after falling off the other day, and a 9.950 on floor after a stumble in Saturday’s meet.

Utah finished the day with a 197.725 putting them solidly in first place. BYU finished second with a 195.775, SUU third with a 194.000, and USU in fourth with a 193.600.

Up Next For The Red Rocks

Utah will not be back in action until Friday, January 26 when they host the ASU Sun Devils at the Huntsman Center. That meet will start at 6:00 pm MT and can be viewed on Pac-12 Network.
