Gymnastics lose to Bowling Green
The women’s gymnastics team struggled in its final meet of the season, losing on the road in Bowling Green 193.675-190.950.
The loss drops the team’s record to 10-9 before the Mid-American Conference championship.
“We didn’t do so hot tonight,” Coach Steve Wilce said. “We had a really good meet at home about a week ago, but today we had a couple people with a repertory problem not feeling well and people with bad knees who could of used a little more break and today wasn’t a good outing, we just didn’t show up.”
Freshman Anna Wilette and Paulina Miller led the team with top performances on the night, coming in second and fifth overall on the vault. Wilette also continued success on the bars with a 9.725. Overall the team struggled with four falls, which was the most all season.
“We simply got to get five or six good routines on each event and see where we fall next week at the championship,” Wilce said.
“There are four judges at the championship meet, which should give us a better chance and makes it a little more fair over,” Wilce said. “We are doing good quality routines and we will have a great chance to push into the top three. We are good enough to win it but got to win that day.”
The team will finish up its season next week, as they will compete in the MAC conference championship. The championship meet will be held at 2 p.m. Saturday in DeKalb, Ill.
