OKLAHOMA CITY — TWU took fourth at the Bart Conner Perfect 10 Challenge on Friday night at the Cox Convention Center.

Second-ranked Oklahoma won the team title with a score of 197.450, while No. 16 Boise State placed second at 195.575 and BYU took third with a 194.175. The Pioneers finished with a 191.425.

TWU opened the meet on floor exercise and posted a season-low 47.725 after counting a fall. Kristin Edwards led the team with a 9.800, while Spencer Jones scored a 9.725.

The Pioneers moved to vault in the second rotation and scored a 48.100. They have posted over 48.000 in every meet this season. Bethany Larimer continued her dominance with a team-best 9.800.

On bars, TWU posted a season-high 48.325. Courtney Cochefski scored a team-best 9.825, while Amy Winczura posted a 9.775 and Larimer a 9.750.

The Pioneers finished the meet on balance beam and scored a 47.275. Stephanie Repp led the team with 9.775, while Paisley Read posted a 9.700.

“We didn’t have our best performances in all four events,” TWU coach Lisa Bowerman said. “I thought we had some good vaults even though our scores were low. The bars team was better but still has room for improvement.”

The Pioneers return to action at 2 p.m. Feb. 24 when they face Air Force, Centenary and Illinois-Chicago at Kitty Magee Arena.
