NEW HAVEN, Conn. – After two consecutive home meets (the final two of the season), the Yale gymnastics team will be back on the road on Saturday, competing in the New Hampshire Invitational against newly crowned Ivy champion Brown, Towson and host UNH. The Bulldogs have scored over 190.000 in their last three meets and look to continue that trend this weekend.
Last Saturday, Yale hosted the Ivy Classic and finished fourth with a score of 191.100. Brown won the event with a 193.925, Cornell was second with a 193.025 and two-time defending Ivy champion Penn finished in third, with a 191.600. On their home turf, the Yale gymnasts delivered a number of impressive performances, led by senior Tara Feld, who won the Ivy championship on the floor exercise, pacing the field with a score of 9.825. Senior bars specialist Lindsay Andsager also performed extremely well, tying for second on the bars with a 9.800. Sophomores Joyce Li and Morgan Traina each had excellent days for the Bulldogs, finished third and fifth, respectively, in the all-around event.
This will be Yale's second meet at New Hampshire this year, having competed against UNH in a tri-meet on February third. On that occasion, UNH was victorious, scoring a 195.425 to Yale's 191.225. It was a very solid performance for the Bulldogs, especially on the floor exercise, where all six Yale gymnasts scored over 9.500. Having just faced Brown in the Ivy Classic, Towson will be the only team Yale has not already faced this season.
Saturday's meet is scheduled to start at 4:00 P.M.
