LOGAN, Utah - Utah State gymnastics is set to compete in the inaugural Mountain Rim Gymnastics Championships (MRGC) on Saturday, March 22. The meet featuring USU, Boise State, BYU, Denver and Southern Utah will be hosted by BYU in Provo, Utah. Action from the Marriott Center will get underway at 1 p.m. (MT).
Saturday's meet will be televised live on BYUtv (Comcast Ch. 21, Dish Network Ch. 9403, DirecTV Ch. 68/374). In addition to the broadcast, BYU will provide live scoring and an online video feed. These links will be available on the Utah State Athletics website, www.UtahStateAggies.com, the day of the meet.
Overall, the Aggies are 3-3 against MRGC opponents this season. USU swept Southern Utah in the home-and-home series, while splitting the series with BYU by winning at home and falling on the road. Boise State topped the Aggies at the Oregon State Quad-Meet, finishing second to USU's third-place. Denver handed USU its only home loss of the season in February.
