The Cougars will compete in their final meet of the scheduled season before the Regional competition. BYU scored its highest team score since 2008 in last week’s meet against Southern Utah University. The 195.875 score solidified BYU’s position in the Regional competition on April 6. BYU hopes to continue scoring well and have fun in this last meet of the 2013 season.

“We have been working all season to max out our routines,” coach Brad Cattermole said. “It doesn’t matter if we score a 193 or 198 this meet, we’re gonna be where we are for Regionals. This will be a meet where the girls can relax and compete.”

The Washington Huskies have been scoring in the upper 195 and lower 196 range; however, they scored their lowest score of the season in last week’s meet. The 194.775 the Huskies scored last week was one that the team hopes to improve on in this weekend’s meet.

Seattle Pacific University will also compete, after posting a team score of 191.725 in last week’s meet in San Jose, Calif. The Falcons will end their regular season on Friday.

The competition will take place at the University of Washington on Friday at 7 p.m. PDT.
