Ducks Top Falcons in Regular Season Finale
Release Date: 03/26/2011
The Ducks cracked 283 points for the fourth-consecutive meet and the fifth time in their last six outings to finish the regular season with a 6-1 record.
“It was a good close to the regular season,” head coach Felecia Mulkey said. “This entire trip has put us in a good position going into nationals. We know what we need to work on and clean up to get ready for the national championships. I feel like we’ve progressed exactly the way we need to be ready in two weeks.”
Oregon claimed five of the six events in the dual, beginning with a 39.65-38.98 win in the compulsories. All four heats scored at least a 9.85 with three tallying over a 9.9, led by a 9.95 in the basket toss heat. UO swept all three heats in the next event, stunts, and extended its lead with a 29.14-28.76 win.
The Falcons scored their only event win of the day in the pyramids, 28.9-28.7, to pull closer. The slim FSU win cut UO’s lead to 97.49-96.64 at halftime.
Oregon jumped ahead by over a point following a 28.27-27.77 win in the basket toss. The effort was led by a 9.77 in the first heat.
The Ducks put the meet out of reach with their second-highest tumbling score of the season. Oregon swept all six heats and posting a high-score of 9.75 in the open heat to win the event, 54.35-50.82, and open up a lead of nearly five points going into the final event.
Oregon concluded the competition with a 106.13-102.34 win in the team routine. The score is the Ducks’ second-highest of the season and the second time in the past three duals that they have scored higher than 106 in the final event.
The Ducks host the National Collegiate Acrobatics and Tumbling Association National Championships at Matthew Knight Arena April 7-9. Seedings for the three-day competition will be announced on Sunday.
