Gymnastics: Brown, Springfield, Ithaca at SCSU

NEW HAVEN, CT- The Southern Connecticut State University Owls opened their season hosting the Division 1 Brown Bears, and the Division 3 Springfield Pride and Ithaca Bombers. As a note, wins and losses are somewhat irrelevant as overall scoring by season’s end is critical for postseason appearances, however Brown did take first with a 188.950. Their highest scoring event is a 47.925 on Vault, with an event leading 47.550 on Bars, and 47.575 on Floor. Playlist of most of Brown’s routines:
