PROVO -- The No. 35 BYU women’s gymnastics team will host its final home meet of the 2010 season Friday taking on No. 22 Boise State and No. 26 Arizona State at 7 p.m. in the Smith Fieldhouse. Despite an injury to team-leader Megan Donehue Friday in Boise, Cougar head coach Brad Cattermole remains optimistic about the remainder of the BYU season.
“We are looking forward to it,” Cattermole said Monday. “To be a great team you have to overcome things like injuries; if you are doing anything other than moving forward, you are only making excuses.”
The Cougars faced BSU last weekend in Boise. The Broncos were victorious scoring 195.625 to defeat BYU and Utah State. Donehue’s injury certainly rattled the Cougars but Cattermole said he was proud of his team’s composure.
“They showed determination to get through the rest of the evening,” said Cattermole. “We hope we will have Megan back and it certainly hurts our team to lose her at this point, but this is just something that our team will have to work through.”
BYU is currently No. 7 in the region and hopes to return to regionals after not receiving an invitation last year. Regionals will be held April 10th at 6 p.m. in Salt Lake City.
