BOISE -- Despite recording a season-high 194.525 and five gymnasts posting individual season and career highs, the BYU women's gymnastics team struggled at times and was unable to overcome a season-best 194.775 mark by Boise State, falling 194.775 - 194.525 Monday night in Boise. The Cougars are now 3-4 on the year.

"We did good for our fifth meet," BYU assistant coach Dawn Cattermole said. "We had to count a fall on vault and a run on a dismount. Without those, we would have been right there."

Kylee Draper and Jennifer Matthews recorded career highs on bars early to help BYU post a season-high 48.900 and take a 48.900 - 48.600 lead after the first rotation. Draper led the Cougars with a 9.850. Kacie Capra and Cassie Myers were right behind at 9.800, a season high for Myers, while Matthews posted a 9.750. BSU's Taylor Jacob took first with a 9.875.

"We did great on bars," Cattermole said. "Jenny (Matthews) did really well. We were very pleased."

The Cougars had some struggles on vault in their next rotation and fell behind 97.100 -- 97.050. Dayna Smart did manage to take first-place on the event with a season-best 9.850 while Hayley Jensen posted a career-high 9.775.

Capra led BYU on floor with a 9.800 in its third rotation, but the Broncos posted a solid outing on beam behind Lindsay Ward's 9.875 to take a .250 advantage into the last rotation.

The Cougars recorded a season-best 48.875 on beam in their last rotation. Dayna Smart tied her season-high 9.875 while tying with Ward for first place on the event.

BSU's Taylor Jacob and Kea Cuaresma each recorded a 39.100 to tie for first place in the all-around. BYU's Capra was right behind with a season-best 38.975.

The Cougars will be back at home Friday night when they host national-power and No. 3 ranked Utah at 7 p.m. in the Marriott Center. The meet will be broadcast live on BYU TV.
