PROVO, Utah – The BYU women’s gymnastics team will host in-state competitors Utah State and Southern Utah University, Saturday at 1:00 p.m. MST at the Smith Fieldhouse.

The team will be wearing pink to show their support for finding a cure for cancer. Last year in honor of trainer Gaye Merrill, who passed away from cancer, the team wore pink all season. The gymnasts are excited to show their support once again for a great cause. Admission to the meet will be $1 for those wearing pink.

The Cougars are coming off a loss at the University of Arizona and are looking to rebound with solid scores this week.

“These athletes are trying really hard,” head coach Brad Cattermole said. “They are giving it their best shot. We just have to keep going. We don’t have many meets left and we need to increase our personal intensity. If everyone on the team isn’t going as hard as they can, we’re going to be in trouble. We need everyone on the team doing everything they can for us to succeed.”

The meet will be broadcast live on BYUtv with live streaming on byutv.org. Live stats will be available at byucougars.com.
