LOGAN, Utah — Victories from Kalliah McCartney on vault and beam led the Sacramento State gymnastics team against Utah State on Friday night. However, it was the Aggies who prevailed in the meet, 195.100-193.650.
McCartney scored 9.875 to win both of her events. The junior has now finished first on vault five times this season and claimed her first win on beam.
The Hornets began the meet on bars and trailed, 48.850-48.050, after USU was on vault. Brennan Bailes, Jesse Williams and McCarntey each scored 9.700 to lead Sacramento State and tie for fifth place.
The team made up a little ground during the second rotation, scoring 49.025 on vault compared to a 48.850 from the Aggies on bars. The score was a season high for the Hornets and the sixth best in school history. Along with the 9.875 from McCartney, Julia Konner and Williams each scored 9.825 to tie for second place. Kailey Hansen added a 9.800 to tie for fourth place and Katie Osaki scored 9.700 to tie for ninth.
The third rotation took Utah State to beam and Sacramento State to floor. The Hornets scored 48.500 and counted five scores between 9.600 and 9.775. Hansen placed third overall to lead the team. Williams tied for fourth with a 9.750 and Osaki was sixth at 9.700.
The Hornets ended the meet with a 48.075 on beam. Kayla Wonderly led off the rotation with a 9.725 and was followed by a 9.675 from Julia Konner and a 9.650 from Cassie Benning. The team endured some troubles in the back half of the order with two falls surrounding McCartney.
