DENTON, TEXAS — The No. 9-ranked University of Missouri gymnastics team extended its winning streak to three meets with a victory over Texas Woman’s, 197.025-195.475, Saturday night at Kitty Magee Arena. The Tigers have now won six of their last seven dual meets dating back to last year and have surpassed 197 in 11 of their last 12 outings.

The Tigers claimed a share of all four event titles, as senior Mara Titarsolej secured the bars title with a 9.925 in the anchor position and junior Amari Celestine and freshman Hannah Horton shared the vault title by each scoring 9.875. Junior Jocelyn Moore took a share of the floor title with a 9.950 while graduate student Sienna Schreiber ended the night with a 9.975 on beam to notch her fourth event title of the season.

Schreiber starred for the Tigers in the all-around, tying a season-best 39.525. With her personal-record 9.925 performance on floor, Schreiber passed Mary Burke (2009-12) for the most points scored in a Mizzou gymnastics leo. She ended the night with 2002.800 total points in her four-plus years, becoming the first Missouri gymnast to surpass 2,000 career points.

After exceeding 49 on both bars and vault with a 49.100 and 49.075 respectively, Shannon Welker‘s squad hit the next gear in the last two rotations. On floor, four Tigers earned at least a 9.9 to help Missouri score a 49.500 on the event. The visitors needed to score a 49.325 on beam to clinch another 197, and with standout performances at the end of the lineup from Schreiber and junior Grace Anne Davis, Missouri hit a 49.350 in its final rotation.

A handful of Tigers made their debuts on different events in Denton. After performing in exhibition early this season, sophomore Jalene Jachna made her competitive debut on vault, scoring a 9.775 on her front pike with a half twist. Junior Alonna Kratzer cracked the bars lineup in the second spot, posting a 9.725.

With the win, Missouri improves to 6-1 on the season, marking the team’s best start since 2010. Texas Woman’s drops to 3-3 with the result.


The Tigers opened up a lead after the first rotation thanks to Titarsolej’s 9.925 to lead, as Missouri scored a 49.100. Senior Kyra Burns opened the scoring with a 9.825, and Schreiber preceded Titarsolej with a 9.850. 

With the 49.100 score on bars, Missouri has now eclipsed 49 on bars in three consecutive meets.


Missouri scored a 49.075 on vault, as Horton and Celestine shared the vault title with 9.875 performances. The Tigers received a trio of 9.775 vaults from Schreiber, Jachna and Moore.

The Tigers have hit 49 on vault in every meet this season and extended their total streak to seven consecutive meets.


As always, the Fab Floor put on a spectacular performance, producing a 49.500 for Mizzou’s best rotation score of the night. Schreiber led off the event with a career-best 9.925, breaking her previous best of 9.900 which she had hit seven times before. Freshman Rayna Light followed with a 9.800 showing while Horton notched a 9.900 in the third spot.

To close out the rotation, freshman Kennedy Griffin notched her third consecutive 9.9, posting a 9.925 to a thunderous ovation. Moore, the steady anchor, scored a 9.9 on floor for an eighth consecutive meet, leading the Tigers with a 9.950.

With the stellar showing, the Tigers have notched a 49.3 or higher in 12 consecutive meets and a 49 or better in 41 consecutive outings.


The Tigers needed every last point from the Beam Queens to break 197 for a third consecutive meet, and they did not disappoint, notching a 49.350. In her first career leadoff appearance on beam, Celestine opened with a 9.825, followed by a pair of 9.775s from Titarsolej and Light. 

The back half of the lineup stepped up in a major way, with senior Sydney Schaffer producing a 9.850. In the five spot, Davis put together the best beam routine of her career with a 9.925. Needing a 9.950 or better, Schreiber stepped up and notched a 9.975 — the fifth near-perfect score of her career — to help the Tigers close the night at a 197.025, clinching an important road score in the process.
