Owls headed to Colorado to take on Air Force

The No. 12 men’s gymnastics team (10-4) will be heading to Colorado for Thursdays 6 p.m. meet with Air Force. After getting ousted by No. 9 California Berkeley last Sunday, the Owls will look to get back in the win column against Air Force.

Graduate student Taylor Brana will aim to stay in good form for tomorrow’s meet. The native of Israel led Temple in three events last Sunday at California. Scoring a 14.200 on pommel horse, a 14.300 on rings, and tying teammate senior Alex Tighe for the Owls’ highest score on parallel bars with a 14.600.

Senior Allan Malone is also in good form heading into the meet with Air Force. Malone scored very high at California Berkley as well. The Cookeville Tenn. native led Temple scoring a 13.750 on horizontal bar, and was Temple’s highest scorer on floor exercise with a 14.900, the major contribution to the team’s overall event score of 71.1, Temple’s best apparatus score of the day.

Brana said that he was a little disappointed with the team’s outcome last week, but that he and the rest of the Owls will look to get back on track at Air Force tomorrow. Competition begins at 6 p.m.
