Deja Vu All Over Again.....
Exactly one year ago tonight, I wrote this post about our first gymnastics meet of the season and how although we won, we really just sucked less than the other team, and it pained me to post our winning score of 195.425.
Fast forward to tonight, when we really, really sucked but sucked just barely less than the other team and squeaked by with a winning score of 195.15. Ouch.
Once again, floor exercise was our nemesis. We had to count a 9.15 because we also had a 9.1. From a senior. Granted, she was limping after her floor routine, and I think that was the issue on her first (and second) tumbling pass. Courtney McCool absolutely saved the day with a 9.925 on floor. If she hadn't nailed that routine, we would have lost our home opener for the first time in about a bazillion years.
We've got a lot of work to do before an SEC match on the road next Friday night against a team that loves to hate us.
Oh yeah, I said that last year too.
For those of you who couldn't care less about college gymnastics, we now return you to your regularly scheduled programming.
