Rematch with Baylor on tap for A&T


EUGENE, Ore. – The No. 2 Oregon acrobatics & tumbling team will face No. 3 Baylor in Waco, Texas, Saturday at 5 p.m. in a rematch of a March 6 meeting where Oregon knocked off the then top-ranked Bears at Matthew Knight Arena.
Oregon handed Baylor a 281.635-280.660 defeat thanks in part to a pair of perfect 10 scores in the meet. The Ducks were scored the 10s in the 5-element of the acro event and the open competition of the pyramid event. The Ducks held advantage over the Bears in the compulsory event, the acro event and the toss event while the teams tied in the pyramid event.
“We are looking forward to finishing out our regular season strong,” Oregon head coach Keenyn Won said. “Baylor is well coached and a tough team, it is always a good match up when we see each other.”
Since the two teams met in early March, Baylor has picked up wins over Hawaii Pacific and East Texas Baptist while Oregon dropped a tight meet against Azusa Pacific, this week’s No. 1-ranked team in the nation.
“Although we were happy with the execution of a majority of the meet against APU,” Won said, “We had some major mistakes in our team event. We knew we had a lot of work to do when we got back to practices. It was important for us to re-build our confidence in all events. Our team event at APU was not our best and we decided as a team that we didn’t want to feel like that again moving forward. We have really focused on timing and overall execution from start to finish.”
The Baylor meet wraps up the regular season for Oregon with the team looking to earn a spot in the NCATA National Championships and a return to Waco for the meet on April 22-23.
We are taking these last few weeks one day at a time,” Won said. “We ask ourselves if we are giving our best effort at every single practice. Our leaders have done a great job about stepping up and rallying the team to push for each other. Being that this is our last regular season meet, our goal is go out there with confidence and execute all of our skills throughout the meet.”
