COLUMBIA — The Missouri gymnastics team will face Air Force, UC Davis and Texas Women's University at the Air Force Quad Meet on Saturday in Colorado Springs, Colo.

Missouri has faced No. 58 Air Force three times in program history with an overall record of 3-0 and has faced No. 53 TWU 15 times with a record of 14-1. This will be Missouri's first meeting with UC Davis.

The meet follows Missouri's 197.300-194.625 loss to No. 3 Florida in its first-ever SEC road competition last Friday. Freshman Rachel Henderson and Miranda Eubank competed for their first times in this meet, and sophomores Laura Kappler and Rachel Updike scored career highs of 9.725 on the uneven bars and 9.950 on the vault, respectively. Updike is currently ranked eighth nationally on vault.
