The Hornets enter the meet with a 9-10 record and are currently ranked 29th in the national and fifth in the West Region. A victory over UC Davis would give the team a 10-10 overall record heading into the Western Athletic Conference Championships on March 25.

The team scored 193.350 in a tough loss at San Jose State and then responded with a season high 195.175 in a home victory over UC Davis.
