Boise State Gymnasts Top #23 Ohio State on the Road

Boise State scored one of the biggest gymnastics road wins in its history, beating #23 Ohio State 196.025 to 194.925 tonight in Columbus.  This and the meet at Alabama are exactly what the Bronco gymnastics program have been missing in prior years to get the type of pressure-packed events that they will be experiencing in the postseason.

The Broncos won three of the four apparatuses en route to the victory.  Krystine Jacobsen posted a 9.875 score on uneven bars to win the individual title and spark Boise State to a 49.075 score. 

Kelsey Morris scored 9.90 on vault, with freshman Ann Stockwell taking second place with a 9.875 and Paige Urquhart and Ciera Perkins getting 9.80 scores.  Boise State rang up a superb 49.200 team score.

Boise State only scored 48.975 on floor, then took to the balance beam, where they scored 48.775.
“We’re so proud of this team,” said co-head coach Tina Bird.  “We had several new gymnasts in the lineup and they did a great job.  Kelsey Morris had a phenomenal night, as did Ciera Perkins. Tonight was truly a team effort.”
Boise State hosts BYU next Friday at 7 p.m. in Taco Bell Arena.
