It was a good meet, it's just that beam that nailed Arizona's coffin. They have the talent and the skills to get those high scores, just gotta put it all together. Hopefully, they can improve that as the season progresses.

That's all for me tonight. I'll be back tomorrow for Washington at Stanford at 2 p.m. MST.

I love NCAA gymnastics.

Katelyn Ohashi Sets the Rumors Straight

American Cup winner Katelyn Ohashi has been out of competition for a while due to injuries.

Since she won the American Cup in March, she's been largely absent from the USA Gymnastics scene. In April, she turned down international assignments at the City of Jesolo Cup because she was recovering from shoulder surgery. She was absent from the national championships in August, presumably for the same reason.
