PROVO, Utah – BYU gymnastics hits the road to take on the University of Arizona on Friday.
“Arizona is a great team and it should be an exciting meet,” BYU head coach Guard Young said. “We’re still looking for that one meet where we can put it all together. We are starting to taper now so the girls are feeling better in the gym and are looking stronger.”
The Cougars placed second last week with a total score of 195.550 in a tri-meet with Utah State and New Hampshire. Utah State finished in first with 196.025 and New Hampshire in third with 193.825.
Makenzie Johnson Halliday recorded a career-high on floor with a 9.950, tying the sixth-best floor score in program history. Emily Vidmar tied her personal best of 9.850 on bars, while Mackenzie Douglas set a personal record on floor with a 9.875. Éliane Kulczyk was named Co-Specialist of the Week for her performance on bars, scoring a career-high 9.900. BYU also recorded a team season-high 49.325 on floor last Friday.
The meet will begin at 6 p.m. MST at the McKale Memorial Center in Tucson, Arizona. Live stats can be found on the BYU gymnastics schedule page.
