Gymnastics falls to UC Davis

Senior Halle Moraw performs her routine during the gymnastics meet against Bowling Green University in McGuirk Arena, Feb. 22.

The Central Michigan University gymnastics team struggled to keep consistency and fell to the University of California at Davis 194.725-194.15 on Friday night. 

The Chippewas could not find their groove during the loss. The championship style rotation has proven to be a problem this season as CMU both of the quad meets it has played during 2015. 

UC Davis all-arounder Alexis Brown claimed three third-place finishes. The highlight for CMU was senior Kylie Fagan's first-place finish on the uneven bars.

With senior balance beam ace Taylor Noonan out of the rotation with a knee injury, CMU failed to break 48 during the event. 

With scores as low as 9.15 on beam, the Chippewas could not make up the lost points.

After the balance beam breakdown, Head Coach Jerry Reighard’s squad moved to floor where it scored a 48.7, lead once again by senior Halle Moraw who managed a 9.825.

CMU had a chance to move into the NCAA Top 25 with a big score late Friday night but failed to hit the 196 mark.

Fagan lead CMU with the only 9.9 of the meet. 

The Chippewas' next action is set for 9 p.m. on Friday when the team takes on BYU in Provo, Utah.
