“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.”
