unheralded stars of week 9

Balance Beam Situation:

Gymnasts from schools outside the top 25 who scored over 9.900

Danielle Mulligan, New Hampshire – Bars, 9.925
Mulligan is currently ranked 12th on UB and is setting herself up as one of those gymnasts who could legitimately get to nationals as an individual.

Breahna Wiczkowski, Temple – Beam, 9.925
New name to learn. Sophomore whose previous high was 9.850 and had broken the 9.8 barrier just three times in her career.

Macey Hilliker, Central Michigan – Floor, 9.950
She’s so the new Rachel Stypinski in this category. After six 9.925s, CMU finally hit a 9.950. 

Rachel Stypinski, Kent State – Floor, 9.950

Bailey Abernathy, Minnesota – Floor, 9.950

Briannah Tsang, Penn State – Floor, 9.950
Penn State broke 196 for the first time this season, in the process moving back into the top-36 regional spots. I wonder what changed…

Nicola Deans, Michigan State – Floor 9.950

Kayla Beckler, Kaitlyn Menzione, Sydney Finke, Ball State – Floor 9.925
School record 49.500 on floor.

Krysten Howard, Arizona – Floor, 9.925

Victoria Ortiz, Arizona – Bars, 9.925

Taylor Chan, San Jose State – Floor, 9.925
The freshman is top 50 on floor, following a string of 9.875s with this 9.925.
