Owls look to use spring break to their advantage

Women’s gymnastics (4-21) will head to William and Mary for a 1 p.m. competition against the Tribe tomorrow.

Coach Aaron Murphy said that he has been happy with the way the team was performing in practice this week and he used the spring break to display a little bit of strategy.

“We looked really good,” Murphy said. “With this being spring break, I only brought back my top 15, so that kind of cut some numbers down but really allows us to focus on the individuals in [the gym]. At this point they can all do their routines, now we just need to try and clean it up and perfect it, and that’s what we worked on this week.”

Heading into tomorrow’s meet, Murphy has high expectations for his team.

“Our expectations for the meet tomorrow is just going in there and trying to hit 24 for 24,” Murphy said. “I truly believe that we haven’t really shown how strong of a team we are, so if we can push a [score of] 192 and change, that’s what I’m leaning towards as a coach.”

Having come in fourth place out of four at the team’s last quad-meet at Penn State last week, the Owls will be looking to get back in the win column tomorrow at William and Mary.
