Records continue to fall for BYU's women's gymnastics team. Saturday night BYU defeated Utah State 190.55-188.50 - the first time the Cougars have gone over the 190-point mark in school history.
Another milestone was reached by the Cougars when Korie Jackman broke a 5-year-old state record for best all-around score (38.95) for a gymnast from a Utah school. The old mark of 38.85 was set in 1984 by the University of Utah's Megan McCunniff-Marsden.Utah State's 188.50 was its best road mark in school history and Aggie junior Tana Call-Davis' 38.10 was a Utah State record in the all-around.
Jackman tied or beat every school individual record but one on her way to her record-breaking mark. She tied her own best on vault (9.80), beat a 2-year-old record on bars with a 9.70, and bettered the floor mark of 9.60 with a 9.75. Sophomore Marianne Williams still holds the record on beam with a 9.80.
Besides the overall score, several other team marks also fell for the Cougars. They scored a team-best 47.90 on bars, 47.25 on beam and 48.30 on floor. The 38.30 is also a high for any event for the Cougars.
BYU and USU have qualified for the NCAA Midwest Regionals in Salt Lake City on April 1.
