The Tigers finished in last with 193.400 points. However, junior Mary Burke scored 9.875 points on the beam, which was tied for third in the competition and matched Burke's personal best.

The Tigers will face the Cornhuskers again next weekend in a dual meet at the Hearnes Center. The meet will begin at 6:30 p.m. on Friday.
