PROVO, Utah – Heading into its final regular season meet, the BYU women’s gymnastics team will travel to Seattle for a tri-meet vs. Washington and Seattle Pacific at Alaska Airlines Arena on Friday.
“This is a meet where we can just go out there and give it our best without having to worry about anything,” head coach Brad Cattermole said. “We feel like we are in a good position to make regionals no matter what happens. It will be fun to just go out there and see what we can do.”Comment on this story
BYU is coming off a season-best 195.875, it’s highest score since the 2008 season. The Cougars are currently ranked 29th in the extended rankings and are positioned for a likely NCAA regional berth, a goal the team has had since barely missing out last year after 11 straight postseason appearances.
With a current regional qualifying score of 195.320, BYU matches up well with Washington’s 195.520. Seattle Pacific has work left to do and will be looking for a big score with an RQS of 191.820.
The meet is set to begin at 7 p.m. PST. Once the meet begins, fans can follow live scores and streaming video on Washington's website.
