PROVO, Utah — In the first of BYU gymnastics’ two final home meets, the team hosts Arizona Friday night at the Smith Fieldhouse.

“It’s always nice to come home and have great support from our fans,” BYU head coach Guard Young said. “Arizona is well-coached and has some great talent. We want to roll with the punches — they hit and we hit.”

The Cougars fell to Minnesota 196.050 to 195.000 Saturday night after tying the score at the end of three rotations. Brittni Hawes and Jill van Mierlo both earned a 9.875 on bars and beam, respectively. Shannon Hortman earned her third Mountain Rim Gymnastics Conference Gymnast of the Week award after scoring a 39.200 in the all-around.

Arizona recently came up short against Arizona State at home, 195.700 to 195.375. Victoria Ortiz and Krysten Howard both posted a 9.925 on bars and floor, respectively.

The meet begins at 7 p.m. MST and will be televised live on BYUtv. It will also be streamed on and live stats will be available. 

Following Friday's meet, BYU will host No. 21 Southern Utah Monday night in its regular-season finale at 5:30 p.m. MDT.
