No. 12 Presbyterian Wins Season-Opening Meet

February 21, 2022

The 12th-ranked Presbyterian College Blue Hose (1-0) Acrobatics and Tumbling team opened the 2022 season with a win over the Saint Leo Lions (0-1) by the score of 251.680-236.365 in the Templeton Center.

“I am excited about the win,” Presbyterian coach Amber Morrell said. “We started with lower start values than Saint Leo because we were wanting to do things that were really clean. We can build on that. I think we executed that so now as we go through the season we can increase our start values. The sport is really about cleanliness and execution so that is what we are trying to do is win by that strategy.”
