The team ended the meet on vault, earning a 49.2375. Vault has been the GymDogs strongest event this season, and it continued to be a strong suit for the team in Texas. Snead and Vega led the team, each earning a 9.9. The next highest score came from freshman Rachael Lukacs who earned a 9.85.
The GymDogs 2019 season came to a conclusion with this loss. Snead will be the only senior leaving the team, and the GymDogs will see quite a few freshmen returning in the fall.
“They are young. They have the will and they want it so bad,” head coach Courtney Kupets Carter said. “It’s about getting them to understand in that moment that they can just go do it. Let it go, be free. That didn’t happen tonight.”
