PROVO -- Despite good performances and a great effort, the Utah Utes slipped by the BYU Cougars 194.350-196.650.

"This meet was scored about right," said head coach Brad Cattermole. "We got about what we deserved."

Though it was not the best night for the Utes either, they landed solid performances that kept them ahead the entire meet. Their vault (49.125), beam (48.90), and floor (49.25) scores were the third highest of the season, with the 49.375 score on beam was their second highest.

BYU's scores were among the lowest of the season. However, the Cougars had some shining moments. Senior Genevieve Claveau scored a season high 9.8 on bars. On vault Sierra Jacobs scored a new career high with 9.775 and on beam Candace Bauer tied a career high 9.650. The Cougars were on, but the night was full of small slip ups that kept them from scoring higher. Making her first career appearance, Cassie Myers performed on bars but suffered a fall.

On bars, the Utes had a great night. Katie Kivisto scored a career high 9.9, Ashley Postell tied a career high 9.8, and Rachel Tidd tied a season high 9.95. Their vault performances were just as good with Jessica Duke scoring a season high 9.775, and Nicolle Ford tying a season high 9.875.

The Utes managed to capture the top three places in all events. In the all-around competition, the Utes took the top for spots with BYU's Jaime Mabray coming in at fifth with a season low 38.60.

The Cougars are now 7-2 while the Utes move up to 6-0. The Cougars will finally return home next week for their second home meet of the season. They will take on Southern Utah again in the Smith Fieldhouse on Friday, February 11, at 7 pm. The meet will be broadcast on BYUTV.
