Missouri gymnastics at Illinois

COLUMBIA, Mo. — University of Missouri gymnastics checks in at No. 13 in the Road To Nationals NQS rankings after the final week of regular-season competition. The Tigers improved their program-record NQS to 197.420 and have three events ranked among the top 12 in the country.

Mizzou posted its highest score this season with a 197.600 to win the Illinois Quad meet on Sunday. MU shattered a pair of program records in the back half of the meet, as the floor and vault records fell in the team’s regular-season finale.

The Tigers’ vault ranking jumped two spots to tie at No. 11 with a 49.340 NQS. Missouri’s vaulters posted a 49.500 to set the program record on the apparatus, breaking the previous mark of 49.450. All six Tigers in the lineup scored above 9.850 and three competitors — Kyra BurnsAmari Celestine and Jocelyn Moore — produced 9.9s, marking the first time this season that a trio of Missouri gymnasts have hit 9.9s on the apparatus in the same meet.

On bars, the Tigers maintained a spot within the top 15 for the seventh week in a row, checking in at No. 12 with a 49.405 NQS. MU’s beam lineup remains within the top 25, as its 49.265 NQS puts the event group at No. 21.

With a 49.575 NQS, the Fab Floor holds at No. 8 in the country. The consistent lineup produced the best outing in program history on Sunday with a 49.700 team score. Five gymnasts scoring 9.9s for the second time this season. Moore became the first Missouri gymnast to score a perfect 10 on the apparatus, while Alonna Kratzer scored a career-best tying 9.900, Sienna Schreiber and Kennedy Griffin recorded 9.925s and Hannah Horton shattered her career-best with a 9.950.

Three Tigers hold event scores that rank among the top 25 in the nation. Graduate student Sienna Schreiber maintained her spot position to become a WCGA Regular-Season All-American with a 9.950 NQS that ranks No. 8 in the country. The standout from Cumming, Georgia, also sits at No. 19 in the country in the all-around with a 39.540 NQS after scoring above 39.5 for the third consecutive weekend.

Junior Jocelyn Moore is also in position for an All-American nod, as her NQS jumped to 9.960 NQS on floor to elevate her to No. 7 in the country. With her perfect routine, Moore extended her 9.9 streak on floor to 14 meets as she is one of just two gymnasts in the SEC to hit 9.9s on the apparatus in every routine this year. The Hillsborough, New Jersey, native is also just outside of the top 16 necessary to be an All-American on vault, slotting in at No. 17 with a 9.910 NQS.

Senior Mara Titarsolej stays in line to be a Regular-Season All-American at No. 15 in the country on bars with a 9.940 NQS. She is in position to earn All-American honors for the third consecutive season on the event.


The Tigers will compete in the afternoon session of the SEC Championship on Saturday, competing alongside No. 12 Arkansas, No. 14 Auburn and No. 18 Georgia. Action from Smoothie King Center begins at 2:30 p.m. CT, and the session will be broadcast on SEC Network.
