After blowing out ranked teams by a couple of points in each of their first two wins, the Beavers suffered their first loss, to another ranked team, Oklahoma, by less than a point. A few miscues in previously reliable routines created a margin that was too great to make up, even though the Beavers finished strong. The final .65 difference is a credit to the Sooners' ability to overcome their own miscues and take first place in the quad meet. OSU finished second, outpointing Denver and Centenary.
Next up for the Beavers is a meet against the defending national champion UCLA Bruins, currently ranked #8. This contest between two talented teams on Friday the 28th in Gill could be decided by the closest event and meet scores of the season.
