PROVO, Utah – In one of the busiest weeks of the year, the BYU women’s gymnastics team is heading south to Cedar City for a second meet vs. Southern Utah on Friday at 7 p.m. MST at Centrum Arena.

The meet is the Cougars third competition in seven days. BYU hosted a tri-meet last Friday vs. Utah and North Carolina State and traveled to Logan for a rematch vs. Utah State earlier this week on Monday.

The team came away with a 195.500 in the tri-meet and a 195.025 vs. the Aggies. After five meets this year scoring above 195, the Cougars are anxious to take the next step and score over 196.

“If we can get them to hit like we do in practice it will happen,” head coach Brad Cattermole said. “We are still looking to improve and are on the right track.”

BYU scored a season high 195.800 in the first meeting with the Thunderbirds while Southern Utah posted a 194.075. SUU is coming off its best road performance and second highest score of the year with a 195.600 at Boise State.
