Acrobatics & Tumbling - Sat, Feb. 4, 2017

Georgetown College acrobatics and tumbling opened the varsity competition against Concordia University Wisconsin. The No. 10 Falcons started strong in the compulsory and never looked back against the No. 12 Tigers.

GC's top four scoring events were – tumbling six element pass (8.8 out of a 9.05), compulsory toss heat (8.25 out of a 10), toss heat three (8.1 out of an 8.9) and pyramid heat three (8.0 out of a 9.1). The visitors tallied a program first 184.155 points to CUW's 235.640.

The best event in meet one was pyramid where the Tigers scored a 23.35 out of a start value of 27.6 for the three events. They followed that up with a strong toss portion, scoring 21.35 points out of a possible 26.65. This was also the portion GC was closest to Concordia as the hosts posted a 24.55 out of a 28.05.

"This was a good first meet," said GC coach Alicia Castagneto. "We've done so much of things in theory, but when you actually get to go through a meet you can learn so much more. In a sport such as this, sometimes the score can be deceiving because if the start value is lower than there are less points to get. However, it is about challenging yourself, and I think we did that.

"There are definitely things to work on that we thought would go better, but again that is part of the learning process that only true competition can bring."

GC returns to action 7 pm Friday, Feb. 17 hosting Glenville State College in the first ever competition in Davis-Reid Alumni Gym.
