Final Rankings for Regional teams that did not qualify for Nationals (#13 - #36) are based on NQS (sum of RQS and Regional Meet score) ... so OSU ends this year ranked 27th (6th in the Pac-12 behind 23rd place ASU) Ö which doesnít represent OSUís season ... it just represents their last team beam score of the season. (Years ago rankings for teams 13-36 were based solely on Regional Meet score ... which would have had OSU #31 this year.)
Through 3 rotations OSU was having a good meet, although not our best meet; ... Floor about 0.075 below the season avg, Vault about 0.050 above the season avg, and Bars matched the season avg. A third place finish in the Regional could have happened with a season low score (= 48.675 ... 196.150) ... a 50.000 on beam would also have been 3rd place by 0.050.
(Allow me one more "what-if"/"what could have been" ... a overall season average score on Beam (~49.075) ... would have meant a 196.550 Regional score for 3rd place & the 11th highest Regional Meet score ... also
a 393.330 NQS and a final rank of 14th, behind #13 Michigan!)
Nebraska had by FAR their best meet of the season at the Raleigh Regional, with their 197.525 (previous high 197.175) ... they matched their season high on Bars, exceeded their season high on Beam by 0.050, was only 0.100 under their season high on Vault, and only 0.0750 under their season high on Floor! If all of their event scores had matched season highs ... they would only have scored 0.125 higher!
