Cougars fall to hot USU gymnasts

LOGAN — In a meet where Utah State tied or broke 15 individual and team highs, the BYU gymnastics team fell to the Aggies 196.025 to 195.500 Friday night at the Dee Glen Smith Spectrum.

The Cougars tied a school record on the floor exercise with 49.525, a score they recorded against Missouri. The record included a 9.95 by Kim Little. Utah State's score was the second highest in school history, as they set season highs on every event except the beam.

BYU was without the strength of top Cougar gymnast, Kelly Parkinson, who is nursing a sore back.

"I thought we came back and did a great job," said USU coach Ray Corn.

Nicole Kilpatrick won the all-around competition with a career-high score of 39.325. For the Cougars, Little was the only gymnast in the all-around and she scored a 38.700.

BYU is back in action tonight when Southern Utah and Stanford come to the Smith Fieldhouse in Provo. The meet will begin at 7 p.m.
