FINAL: No. 2 LSU 197.575, NC State 196.100.
D-D Breaux and the Tigers extended their winning streak on Friday night in Raleigh, posting an overall team score of 197.575 against NC State. LSU has now scored 197 or higher in 34 straight meets.
The Tigers were led by junior Lexie Priessman, who scored a near perfect 9.975 on bars. Event winners included Ruby Harrold on the vault, Lexie Priessman and Sarah Finnegan on bars and Myia Hambrick on the beam. Like Priessman, Finnegan was almost perfect herself, posting another 9.975 to anchor bars for the Tigers.
“Execution was really strong with a different lineup,” said LSU coach D-D Breaux. “We fought for positions tonight. We never let up.”
Next: The Tigers will return to the Maravich Center on Saturday for the regular season finale and Senior Day against Arizona. The meet will begin at 4 p.m. CT and will be televised on the WatchESPN app.
