Kennedy Griffin

ATHENS, Ga. — The No. 12-ranked University of Missouri gymnastics team picked up its first SEC victory of the 2024 season, posting the eighth-best score in program history to take down No. 20 Georgia, 197.400-197.050, Saturday afternoon at Stegeman Coliseum. The Tigers improve to 4-1 (1-1 SEC) while the Bulldogs fall to 1-2 (0-2 SEC).

Senior Mara Titarsolej and graduate student Sienna Schreiber put on the two most impactful performances for the Tigers, as the two veteran leaders each produced a 9.975 on their best event. For Titarsolej, her 9.975 on bars stands alone as the best score on that apparatus in Mizzou Gymnastics history. Meanwhile, Schreiber’s performance on beam matched her career best and helped her capture her third beam title in as many meets this season.

Junior Jocelyn Moore picked up her second vault title of 2024, standing head and shoulders above the competition with a 9.950.

With the Tigers picking up a trio of 9.9s on floor from Schreiber, Moore and Kennedy Griffin, Missouri posted a 9.9 on all four rotations for the first time since the 2023 SEC Championship.

Lily Smith served as Georgia’s best performer in the loss, posting three scores over 9.9 with a Perfect 10.000 on bars.


Missouri started off on the right foot on bars, led by Titarsolej’s 9.975 to take an early 49.250-49.025 advantage. 

Every Tiger scored at least a 9.800 in the rotation, as graduate student Hollyn Patrick and senior Kyra Burns assisted with a 9.850 and 9.825, respectively. Freshman Rayna Light earned a spot in her first bars lineup, posting a 9.800 in her first routine on the event at the collegiate level.


A pair of 9.9 routines from juniors Moore and Amari Celestine helped the Tigers post a 49.325 and create further separation from Georgia, who scored a 49.250 in the rotation. 

Celestine picked up her first 9.9 on vault this season, scoring an even 9.900, while Moore improved upon her vault title performance at Alabama by posting a season-best 9.950.

Schreiber (9.850) and junior Grace Anne Davis (9.825) supported Missouri’s second consecutive meet of scoring over 49.3 on the apparatus.


For a ninth consecutive meet, Missouri totaled a floor score of at least 49.3, notching a 49.425 to best the Bulldogs’ 49.350 in the third rotation. 

Schreiber, Griffin and Moore each scored a 9.900, while Celestine and freshman Hannah Horton scored a 9.875 and 9.850, respectively, to help the Tigers maintain their advantage.


Missouri closed out the show with its best beam performance of the young season, compiling a 49.400 to close out the victory.

In addition to Schreiber equaling her career-high 9.975 on the apparatus, Celestine tallied her first 9.9 on beam in her collegiate career with a 9.925. Davis (9.850) and senior Sydney Schaffer (9.875) added to the solid beam performance to help Missouri wrap up its fourth consecutive dual victory over the Bulldogs.
