THERE'S NO PLACE LIKE HOME — Utah State gymnastics will wrap-up the home portion of the season Friday [March 14] when they host in-state rival No. 24 Southern Utah on Senior Night.
CELEBRATING THE SENIORS — As it is the last home meet of the season, Friday's competition will be the annual Senior Night. The Aggie roster boasts two seniors this season in Paige Jones and Christina Nye. Jones, a Smithville, Mo., native and Nye, a local hailing from North Logan, Utah, have both been at USU for their entire careers and have made significant contributions to the program.
TUNING IN — Friday's meet will be streamed live and at no cost for fans. Additionally, live scores will be available. Links to both will be posted on the Utah State Athletics website on Friday. Fans can also follow the Utah State gymnastics social media outlets for meet updates.
Live stats and a video feed will also be available for Sunday's meet. Links to UCLA's information will be posted on the Utah State website.
LUCKY NUMBER 36 — For a team to qualify for NCAA Regionals, it needs to be in the Top 36 of the Troester/Gym Info rankings. Utah State is at No. 35 for the third week in a row with a Regional Qualifying Score of 194.530. Right now, each of the five teams in the Mountain Rim Gymnastics alliance are in the Top 36. Utah State has not participated in NCAA Regionals as a team since 2007, though individual Aggies have participated each season since.
