LEXINGTON, Ky. — The No. 12-ranked University of Missouri gymnastics team stayed in the meet throughout, but dropped a meet on the road against No. 5 Kentucky, 197.350-196.600, Friday night at Rupp Arena.

A pair of Tigers won event titles, with senior Mara Titarsolej claiming the bars title with a 9.950 and junior Jocelyn Moore co-owning the floor crown with her second near-perfect score of 2024 with a 9.975. 


With a solid opening rotation on bars, Missouri scored a 49.425 to notch the second-best score on the apparatus in program history. Behind Titarsolej’s event title-winning 9.950, two Tigers scored their season-bests on the event, with Moore and graduate student Hollyn Patrick each picking up their first 9.900s of 2024.

Freshman Rayna Light chipped in a 9.850, her best score in a Missouri leo, while graduate student Sienna Schreiber added a 9.825.


Moore and freshman Hannah Horton continued their strong campaigns on vault, each posting a team-high 9.900 to score a 49.250 as a team. Junior Amari Celestine added a 9.850, while Schreiber and junior Grace Anne Davis each logged a 9.800.


The Fab Floor lived up to its lofty standards once again, notching a 49.525 to surpass 49.5 for a third consecutive meet. The mark also tied for the ninth-best mark in program history.

In addition to Moore’s 9.975, Celestine notched her best floor score of the year with a 9.950 in the fourth spot. With their scores carrying the load, Horton and freshman Kennedy Griffin each scored a 9.875, while Schreiber scored a 9.850 in the leadoff position.
