Gymnastics Breaks Record but Falls to Bridgeport

The gymnastics team scored over 192 points for the third straight meet to open the season, breaking a school record in the process. Still, the effort was not enough to earn a victory this past Sunday against Bridgeport. The Red fell by a score of 194.175 to 192.225 against the Knights. Cornell broke another record in the defeat, scoring a 48.775 on beam to surpass the previous record of 48.700 in 2004. Cornell placed the top three performers in the event.

Gymnastics Squad Wins Team Title

The gymnastics team concluded its season in the best way possible with a win at the USAG Collegiate National Championships in New Haven, Conn. The Red posted a score of 191.675, dead even with Bridgeport to share the title. Throughout the meet the Red knew that it had a shot, but was not sure of the final results until the announcement was made.
“It was crazy,” said rising junior Maddie Pearsall. “Basically throughout the meet we were keeping track of [Texas Women’s] because they won last year so we figured that they were our main concern. We knew that their last event didn’t go very well, and then when they made the announcements they came in fourth. When they finally announced that we had tied Bridgeport for the win, everybody went nuts.”

It all started April 7 at approximately 4:30 p.m., when the gymnastics team boarded a Swarthout bus outside Teagle hall.

Could it be a sign? Maybe. The girls promptly named the bus “Baby Beluga” and we all boarded.
