Quinnipiac Acrobatics and Tumbling Falls to Oregon, 273.475-260.215

HAMDEN, Conn.- The Quinnipiac Acrobatics and Tumbling team fell to the University of Oregon Ducks, 273.475-260.215, on Monday, March 25.  With the loss the Bobcats fall to 3-2 on the season as the Ducks remain untouched at 4-0.  The Bobcats were not able to come away with the victory but managed to outlast the Oregon in the Pyramid event.

Quinnipiac trailed from the start, as they fell behind in the Compulsory (37.6-33.65) and Acro (27.85-25.78) events.  Pyramid proved their best outing of the evening as they dominated the mats winning each of the heats (29.2-28.95). The Bobcats would trail going into the half by 5.77 points as they prepared for the second stanza.

In the final proceedings the Bobcats were unable to gain momentum as the Ducks continued to climb.  To open the final events, Quinnipiac posted just .55 short to Oregon as they came away to win their third event of the evening, Toss (28.15-27.6).  The Ducks would continue to receive high marks against the Bobcats in both the Tumbling (55.93-53.93) and Team (95.0-90.19) events to extend their margin by 13.26.

Quinnipiac will look to bounce back into action on Saturday, April 6, when they welcome Fairmont State.  This will be the programs third meeting between each other this year.  Quinnipiac will also honor their three graduating seniors on Saturday afternoon.  Action will begin at 1 p.m. at the TD Bank Sports Center in Hamden, Conn.
