USU gymnastics: Aggies ready to conclude road swing at Sacramento State Friday
Finishing a three-meet road trip, Utah State gymnastics will face-off with Sacramento State in a Western Athletic Conference meet in Sacramento on Friday, March 1. Action from the Nest will get underway at 8 p.m. (MT).
The Aggies are coming off a tough quad-meet at Denver last weekend where they finished fourth to then-ranked No. 13 Denver, No. 16 Boise State at Rutgers with a score of 192.150.
The Hornets are 3-9 on the season with a 1-1 WAC record. The team is averaging a score of 193.829 with a Regional Qualifying Score of 194.090, putting them at No. 40 in the Troester/Gym Info rankings. The Hornet’s high score came at a dual-meet at Southern Utah, where they lost with a score of 195.250.
As WAC rivals, the Aggies and Hornets meet on a consistent basis. Overall, Sacramento State leads the series, 12-7. The two schools competed twice in the 2012 season, both times at the Dee Glen Smith Spectrum.
The first meeting was a part of the regular season where the Aggies came out ahead, 193.875. The Hornets then returned to Logan for the WAC Championship meet. While Denver claimed the title with a 196.350, less than one point separated the remaining four schools. Sacramento State finished second with a 195.675, while Utah State finished fifth with a 194.775.
After a long stretch on the road, the Aggies have a quick turnaround as they will return to the Dee Glen Smith Spectrum to host in-state rival BYU on Monday, March 4 at 7 p.m. As part of the Family Night promotion, fans will receive a free children's ticket with every adult ticket purchase.
