Coach Welker on tonight's performance...
"I thought the meet was a great step forward. I was pleased with the new faces and routines we got to see tonight. Overall we were very consistent on all four events. We did it without two of our girls, who were very consistent and impactful in the first week. It was a great performance from the whole team and I am excited for what they will bring in the upcoming weeks. The night's highlight has to be Kyra Burn competing for the first time as a Tiger. She was out last year with an injury and she brought great energy. You could feel how excited she was and how excited her teammates were for her."
Vault - Jocelyn Moore (9.950)

All-Around - Sienna Schreiber (39.500)
