TEMPE, Ariz. — The No. 12 Oregon State gymnastics team took a 196.650-196.625 win at No. 20 Arizona State on Friday night.
The 196.650 was a solid road score for the Beavers, who were coming off a 196.950 at home last weekend against California. The rankings will switch to the National Qualifying Score next week.
“I know we have more in us and we will be better,” coach Tanya Chaplin said. “We haven’t put it all together on the road yet, but we are getting closer. I am proud how this team continues to learn and grow from each experience.”
The Beavers started out with a 49.175 on bars, getting 9.850s from Mary Jacobsen and Mariana Colussi-Pelaez and 9.825s from Isis Lowery, Halli Briscoe and Sabrina Gill.

It was touch and go on vault as the Beavers had to make up for a fall and an 8.950 by Savanna Force to start. They avoided an additional miscue and McKenna Singley and Madi Dagen scored 9.825s and Kaitlyn Yanish hit for a 9.900 to help put together a 49.100 score on the event.
OSU also found some rough going on floor for a moment and wound up having to count a 9.675. The damage was alleviated when both Lowery and Yanish had big routines for 9.925s. Force bounced back from vault to score a 9.875 and Singley scored a 9.825. The Beavers finished with a 49.225.
Singley led off beam with a 9.825, Colussi-Pelaez and Lacy Dagen followed with 9.850s and Sabrina Gill hit for a 9.900. Maela Lazaro, usually a steady anchor for the Beavers on the event, had to count a fall and scored a 9.050, but the Beavers still managed a 49.150 on the event.
The Beavers take on Alaska Anchorage and Bowling Green next Friday at Gill Coliseum.
