Heather Udodwitch BB ASU - HS mt.,  fro aerial to bhs,  sw to spl jump,  1/1 turn, fro toss, bal check, aerial cartwheel to 1/1 dismount 9.7

Guess Zoey Schaefer's bar score was downgraded a .25 of a tenth?

48.9 for Washington on floor.

ASU struggled on beam, scored a 47.8 having to count two falls and multiple errors.

Washington 3 event total 145.875

ASU 3 event total 143.550

Final rotation, Washington will end on beam and ASU will end on floor. Barring an act of God, I think Washington will pull off an upset over ASU on their home turf.

 Joslyn Goings leads off WASH on beam - bhs, bhs, LOSO, straddle to side straddle, 1/1 turn, gainer loso, off balance slightly, pretends it didn't happen, aerial cartwheel to 1/1 twist stuck. 9.775

Malory Rose WASH BB - spl jump on beam mt, fro aerial to bhs,  memmel 1/1 turn, sw + spl, aerial cartwheel, aerial cartwheel to 1/1 twist (Titanium was definitely an appropriate finishing song to play for Washington on beam). 9.75

Taylor ALlex ASU FX - double arabian huge, 2 1/2 to tuck 1/1 front, fr hs to rudi, 9.9

ASU scores a 48.9 on floor, all-around total 192.450

Washington finishes strong, 48.7 on beam, all-around total of 194.575, wins with a 2.125 gap over ASU. Boom. I'm super impressed with Washington. They may not be getting ridiculous Florida scores, but they were consistent and I'm excited to see how far they can come this season. They're in my hometown, Denver this Saturday.

And with that, I have writers cramp, so I bid you all adieu.
