Meet Notes 05: at Seattle-Pacific
HONEY, I'M HOME
Sophomore Michelle Denise hails from Kennewick, Wash., a city just over three hours outside of Seattle. All three of the Falcons' road competitions so far this season have taken place in the home state of a current gymnast.
SCOUTING THE (OTHER) FALCONS
Seattle-Pacific, like Air Force, currently does not have a Regional Qualifying Score. In last week's rankings, which used season averages, SPU was ranked fourth in the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation with an average of 186.056. In their last meet, the Falcons posted a season-high 188.350 to finish third at a tri-meet with No. 9 Stanford and No. 11 Oregon State.
LAST TIME OUT
In a dual meet with conference leader UC-Davis on Feb. 16, Air Force accounted for a score of 186.775. Although it was the Falcons' third-highest total of the season, it wasn't enough to overcome the Aggies' 188.525.
SWEEP IT UP
During Air Force's meet with UC-Davis, the Falcons tallied a combined total of 47.650 on the floor exercise to improve its top mark by nearly a half-point. Air Force earned a sweep of the top-three scores on the floor exercise, as Abigail Rogers (9.700), Katie Donnell (9.625) and Kelly Lewis (9.575) claimed the top three spots. Both Donnell and Lewis set season-best marks in that event.
WHAT'S AHEAD FOR THE FALCONS
Air Force returns to the Academy for a pair of dual meets with Eastern Michigan on Wednesday (Feb. 27) and Friday (Feb. 29). Both competitions are scheduled to begin at 6 p.m., in the Cadet West Gym.
