Gymnastics to Take on Boise State
PROVO -- The No. 31 BYU Gymnastics team heads off to Idaho this weekend to battle the Boise State Broncos for the second time this season. The competition will be held Friday, February 14 at 7 p.m. at the Boise State Pavilion.
After two weeks of season-low scores at Kentucky and the Cat Classic, the Cougars are ready to jump back into competition and to raise their scores.
"The girls are looking really good," BYU head coach Brad Cattermole said. "They have refocused their efforts, and there has been a increase in workout performance. They are just ready to go out and compete again."
BYU competed against the Broncos in their first home meet of the season on January 25 in the Smith Fieldhouse. BYU took first with a 195.6 to the Broncos' 193.725.
Last weekend the Cougars participated in the Cat Classic at the University of Missouri. BYU came in last with a 192.850. Boise State took third last weekend in California against California, Cal State Fullerton and UC Davis with a 193.65.
BYU will have to pull together and remain focused to score above the Broncos, but Cattermole is confident that the girls will compete well.
"If the level of performance in our practices are any indicator," he said, "we've got what it takes to start scoring high again."
