PROVO, Utah – After finishing first in the Ozone Invitational, the BYU gymnastics team returns home to host Utah State on Friday at the Smith Fieldhouse.

“The key to this time of season is to keep getting better,” BYU gymnastics head coach Brad Cattermole said. “The last meet we did pretty well on vault and bars, but what I’d like to see is if we can put four events together, and do what we’re capable of doing.”

Friday’s meet will be the first Mountain Rim Gymnastics Conference meet of the season for BYU.

The Cougars scored a 193.075 for first place with Makenzie Johnson finishing first overall with an all-around score of 38.975 and also led the team on vault and floor with a 9.850 and 9.725, respectively. Senior Jordan Schult scored a career-high on the beam with a 9.525 and Eliane Kulczyk led the team on bars with a 9.850. 

Utah State dropped its last meet against Denver 196.025-194.525 in their first MRGC meet of the year.

The meet will begin at 7 p.m. MST and will be televised live on BYUtv with live stats found on the BYU gymnastics schedule page
