PROVO -- Landing season-high scores in all four events, the No. 32 BYU gymnastics team recorded a season-best 196.300 over No. 45 Utah State's 194.250 Monday in the Cougars final home meet of the year.

"I am pleased with the results tonight," said BYU head coach Brad Cattermole. "I told the girls we need to be inspirational with our performances. That is exactly what happened tonight."

Four gymnasts claim career highs throughout the meet, but it was the seniors who took center stage in their last home meet at BYU. Senior Dayna-Smart Allen claimed individual titles on beam and floor, tying for first on vault with fellow senior Alethea Boon.

Senior Kylee Draper-Marvin took the final individual title on the uneven bars and landed two career-best scores on both bars (9.850) and beam (9.800). Boon, all-around competitor for the Cougars, claimed the all-around title against the Aggies.

"I expect that each of them hit their routines because they have the ability to," Cattermole said. "Tonight they performed just like they did in practice all week long."

The Cougars started strong on vault posting a remarkable 49.200. That is the highest score BYU has earned on any event all season. The vault team is currently ranked No. 29 nationally.

Four of the six vault competitors tied or surpassed career-best scores. Boon and Smart-Allen led the Cougars with 9.900, a mark to tie Smart-Allen's career-best. Sophomore Megan Donehue, who has been steadily improving on the apparatus with each meet launched a career-high 9.825, along with junior Hayley Jensen whose 9.800 tied her career-best. Sophomore Kiki Berrett also earned a career-high 9.775.

Sticking a season-high event score on bars with an even 49, the BYU squad remained strong. Draper-Marvin earned a career-high posting of 9.850. Close behind the senior, Madeleine Johnson secured 9.825, a personal-best for the freshman.

BYU continued its season-high streak as the Cougars earned a season-best 48.975 on beam. Smart-Allen topped the squad with a season-high 9.875. Boon and Draper-Marvin followed as Boon claimed a sound 9.850 and Draper-Marvin recorded a career-high 9.800.

Rounding out the night BYU worked its way to a 49.125 posting on floor exercises. Smart-Allen and Jensen both launched a 9.850 performance, a season-best for Smart-Allen. Not far behind Draper-Marvin posted a season-high 9.825. The Cougars are currently ranked No. 29 on floor.

Though this meet ends BYU's competition at home, the Cougars will continue their season on the road. They will next travel to face No. 25 Southern Utah on Monday, March 17. It will be the third time BYU and Southern Utah have faced each other this season.

"We've got to be able to carry this over to our road meets," Cattermole said. "We know what to expect at Southern Utah. We have been there once this year and will be comfortable performing there."
