No. 15 Gymnastics Set For MRGC Championships
March 19, 2015
No. 15 Boise State at MRGC Championships
ABOUT THE CONFERENCE
The Denver Pioneers are the reigning MRGC champions, as they won the title by .025.
Southern Utah is the only MRGC team to top the Broncos in 2015. The T-Birds won the season opener at the Utah quad meet, and were victorious in the final meet of the season on their senior night. The Broncos, however, beat Southern Utah in the home opener, 196.725-195.750.
The Broncos have topped Utah State and BYU twice this season, and beat Denver in the only regular-season matchup in 2015.
The Broncos rank 16th on vault (49.225), ninth on uneven bars (49.280), 23rd on balance beam (48.945) and 28th on floor exercise (49.065) this week. The Broncos have scored a season-high team total of 196.800, done against Alaska-Anchorage at home. The Blue and Orange claim an RQS of 196.375, which ranks second the Mountain Rim and ranks fourth in the West.
The Broncos claim five gymnasts ranking in the top-50 nationally through vault and uneven bars. Vault: Perkins-T11 (9.920 RQS) Morris-T30 (9.890) Krentz-45 (9.880) TEAM-16th (49.225). Bars: Perkins-9th (9.905) Jacobsen-T24 (9.885) Mejia-T47 (9.865) Morris-T47 (9.865) TEAM-9th (49.245).
Boise State put together three-straight meets of earning scores of 49.0+ on three out of the four events.
As of Feb. 22., women's gymnastics switched to Regional Qualifying Score (RQS) to determine qualification for regional competiton. A team's RQS is based on a team's and all-around competitor's six best regular-season meet scores, with three being away meets. The high score is eliminated and then the remaining five scores are averaged.
RAISING THE BAR...WITH HORSEPOWER
Kelsey Morris and Ann Stockwell posted a pair of 9.925's on the apparatus against BYU. Morris scored her second 9.925 this season, with her first also coming against BYU. Freshman Ann Stockwell shattered her season-best mark. A Bronco gymnast has recorded a 9.925 or higher on vault in six of the 10 meets this season.
Ann Stockwell wraps up the 2015 regular season, scoring a 9.80 or higher in every meet.
Morris tabbed eight all-around wins last season, and has five to her name in 2015. She joins Julie Wagner (1993-94) as the only Broncos to post back-to-back seasons to rank in the top-10 in Boise State history.
Morris has 13 career event wins at all around and marked her career-best score (39.500) at last year's MRGC championships. That score ranks 11th all-time in Bronco history. Morris' 13 wins in the all-around gives her sole possesion of third place in Boise State history. She needs two more to tie Amy Glass' mark for second place.
The Fall 2014 semester saw six Broncos earn straight-A's: Brooke Graham, Lianne Josbacher, Molly McFarland, Ann Stockwell, Paige Urquhart and Marissa Wossner. Stockwell, Urqhuart and Wossner were named to the Dean's List Highest Honors, while Mary Frances Bir, Alex Esmerian, Brooke Graham and Lianne Josbacher made the Dean's List High Honors.
RESTOCKED & RELOADED
The Blue and Orange return two conference champions: Perkins (UB, FX) and Morris (UB, AA), four MRGC First Team recipients: Perkins (V, UB, FX); Morris (UB, FX, AA); Krystine Jacobsen (UB); and Mejia (UB). Morris also earned MRGC second-team honors on balance beam.
