The Arizona gymnastics team improved to 2-0 on the season Sunday, as the Wildcats defeated Texas Woman’s University 193.475-192.450 in Dallas. Arizona showed some inconsistencies that weren’t apparent in the team’s first meet of the season. Although the GymCats earned better team scores in three of the four events, five of their individual performances were uncharacteristically low. “There were a lot of highlights and moments of brilliance,” Arizona head coach Tabitha Yim said in a press release. “It was nice to see some new faces in the lineup. We had some uncharacteristic performances and gained valuable experience and lessons from our time in Denton. We look forward to getting back to work and for our next home meet on Saturday.”Those uncharacteristic performances came from Lauryn Mattson, Krysten Howard, Lexi Mills and Maddy Cindric, where the Wildcats especially struggled on beam, having to count multiple falls. Arizona combined for a total team score of 48.925 on uneven bars to open the event. Gabby Laub walked away with the second highest score in any event for either team with a 9.825. Selynna Felix-Terrazas also impressed in the event with a score of 9.800. The GymCats then moved onto their second rotation of vault, which three Wildcats tied with scores of 9.675. Jessie Sisler, Shelby Edwards and Cindirc led the way for Arizona. Moving onto the third event with the floor rotation, Kennady Schneider led the way for the second straight week with a 9.800 to take first place. From there, three Wildcats added scores of 9.750 to finish with a team floor score of 48.775. On their final rotation, the GymCats were forced to count two falls, but still managed to walk away with the victory. Sisler scored the highest number between the two teams in any competition with a 9.850. Arizona will face off against Pac-12 Conference opponent UCLA in McKale Center on Saturday at 1 p.m. on Pac-12 Networks. The No. 5 Bruins are coming off a second place finish against No. 3 Florida, a meet in which they managed to earn a total score of 196.925. Senior Danusia Francis is coming off a 9.95 score on beam, from which UCLA earned six career-high marks. UCLA has historically given Arizona much trouble over the past few years as the Wildcats have lost both meets against the Bruins in the past two years.
