PROVO, Utah — Two weeks after their last meeting, the BYU and Utah State gymnastics teams will compete in Logan Friday night at the Dee Glen Smith Spectrum.
“We didn’t have a very good meet up at Boise last week,” BYU head coach Guard Young said. “Having a little adversity is a good thing. We’re finding our identity. We expect to rebound and bounce back even stronger.”
In their first meeting of the season, the Aggies topped the Cougars with a narrow 195.300 to 195.200 victory in Provo on Jan. 20.
Last week, BYU fell to Boise State in the Gem State Invitational, 196.400 to 193.525. Jill van Mierlo earned a season-high 9.900 on beam while two freshmen added career highs on the same event. Hannah Miller posted a 9.800 and Briana Pearson scored a 9.750.
Utah State recently lost to New Hampshire on the road, 195.175 to 194.075. Sophomore Madison Ward earned her second straight 9.900 on floor.
The meet begins at 7 p.m. MST. A live stream and live stats will be available.
