Bridgeport Wins Quad Meet, Despite West Chester's Best Efforts (Ever!)

WCU Golden Rams posted their highest-ever total score, but it wasn't enough to beat Bridgeport in a quad meet with Ursinus and Rhode Island College in West Chester

Host squad West Chester University set team record scores on bars, floor and total team score, but nevertheless came second best to ECAC rival Bridgeport University today, in a quad meet with Ursinus and Rhode Island College. Results had not been posted as of this writing so no further details are available, but an enthusiastic standing room-only crowd (I know firsthand, because I had to stand most of the time) witnessed a close competition between the home Golden Rams and powerhouse Bridgeport Purple Knights (three straight NCAA Division II titles, I think), with some standout performances from individual Ursinus and Rhode Island gymnasts. This was the first NCAA meet I've managed to get to this season, I'd almost forgotten how much fun the rowdy atmosphere of college gymnastics can be.
