This Sunday, the West Virginia gymnastic team will compete in a tri-meet against Western Michigan and William & Mary.
The Mountaineers are coming into this meet with a recent win against New Hampshire, 195.8-195.225.
"This still wasn’t the best performance we can put out there," said WVU head coach Jason Butts. "To get that kind of a score at the second meet, it would have been our second high score of all season last year. So to be there in January right now, especially coming off our performance in Denver, I’m really excited with the direction we are headed in."
Junior Alexa Goldberg won first place overall with a score of 39.255, a personal best and career-high. She was also awarded with first on floor with a score of 9.96, along with a first on bars at 9.9.

WVU dominated on vault after having Mountaineers win each of the first, second and third place awards.
Koshinki won first with a 9.9 score, sophomore Zaakira Muhammad received second place, getting 9.850 and senior Jaida Lawrence’s score of 9.825 landed her the third place finish.
