USU gymnastics: Aggies to open conference competition at SUU on Friday
In the first of its Western Athletic Conference meets of the 2013 season, Utah State gymnastics will face Southern Utah in Cedar City, Utah, on Friday at 7 p.m.
Last week, the Thunderbirds were a part of the USU-hosted tri-meet with Hamline University. SUU finished first with 194.075, with USU in second place with 192.875 and Hamline wrapping it up with 181.975.
As both WAC and in-state rivals, Utah State and Southern Utah have a long history of competition. The teams have been consistently comparable, with a nearly even record. The Thunderbirds currently edge out the Aggies, leading 38-36.
Both USU and SUU head coaches began their coaching careers as student assistants for Utah State legendary head coach Ray Corn, with the Aggies' coach Jeff Richards coaching from 1988-90 while Thunderbirds coach Scott Bauman was with the Aggies through his 1990 graduation. Richards was later an assistant under Bauman at SUU from 1991-98.
Next weekend, the Aggies return home to the Dee Glen Smith Spectrum to host the Falcons of the Air Force Academy. Action will get underway at 7 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 8.
Live results for Friday's meet are available by clicking on the "Live Results" and "Watch Live" links on the USU website, which will redirect to SUU's site. There will be a small fee to watch the video feed, and the live stats link will only work once the meet has started.
