LA CROSSE, Wis. – The Gustavus women’s gymnastics team traveled to UW-La Crosse Friday and scored a 173.075. The Eagles won the dual with a score of 190.375.

The Gusties scored 36.125 on vault, 44.200 on beam, 43.200 on floor, while they struggled on bars with a 39.550.

Brooke Merila (So., St. Michael) had a solid day for the Gusties, finishing first in the all-around with a 36.650. She posted 9.250 on beam to pace the Gusties while the same score was the second best floor routine for Gustavus. Emma Esteb (Fy., Woodbury) posted the highest score for the Gusties on the floor with a 9.300 while Sophia Nelson (Fy., Minneapolis) led the team in vault with a 9.300.

“We were prepared to take a step back in scores today. We are still fighting injuries and illness, and resting people on events to get ready for our final home meet of the year. Beam was a highlight again and it was exciting because it happened at the end of the meet. Brooke also had a great meet, highest all-around of the year and really pushed the team forward.”

The Gusties are back in action next Saturday for their final home meet of the season as they host UW-Oshkosh in a 2 p.m. meet.
