Georgia Gym Dogs Post Season-High 196.725 in Easy Victory in Monday Matinee

The fifth-ranked Gym Dogs hosted No. 18 West Virginia in a special Monday afternoon meet, cruising to an easy 196.725-192.125 win in the holiday matinee.

Georgia won all four events, outperforming the Mountaineer gymnasts on the bars (49.45-47.85), on the beam (49.15-47.525), in the floor exercise (49.25-48.375), and on the vault (48.875-48.375). Cassidy McComb claimed the all-around title with a cumulative 39.525 mark.

The Red and Black carded a trio of 9.75s in the vault competition, but McComb’s 9.8 and Lindsey Cheek’s 9.825 in the event bolstered the Bulldogs’ tally. The uneven parallel bars saw the home team showcase strong performances from McComb (9.9), Gina Nuccio (9.925), and Kat Ding (9.95). McComb’s 9.9 on the balance beam highlighted a rotation in which the Gym Dogs notched four scores of 9.825 or higher. A pair of 9.9s posted by Noel Couch and Hilary Mauro augmented a performance in the floor exercise that included a 9.925 by McComb.

Quite frankly, West Virginia did not present, and should not have presented, much of a challenge for the Georgia gymnastics team. The Red and Black were competing not against the Mountaineers, but against their own lofty standards. Today, the Gym Dogs met those standards, posting a season-high score that included the sorts of scores to which fans of this program have become accustomed. If Saturday’s result turns out to be the exception and Monday’s meet proves to be the rule, we should see the Gym Dogs back in competition for the conference and national championships where they belong.
