The No. 15 Tigers hoped to push their win streak to three on Friday night as they traveled to Lexington, Kentucky, to take on the No. 25 Wildcats. The Wildcats would emerge victorious, however, by a close margin of 196.050-194.675.

Britney Ward continued her phenomenal season with a win on vault, her eighth event win of the season.

The first event of the day was the bars, and Morgan Porter came off firing on all cylinders tying for second in the event with a score of 9.850. Porter has been strong all season on the apparatus, scoring at least a 9.800 in the last seven meets.

The second rotation went much better for the Tigers as they scored a season high 49.100. Ward, who took home her fourth vault title of the season, and Kennedi Harris, who scored a 9.850, led the Tigers to their season high tally.

The Tigers struggled on the floor as they were outscored by nearly a full point by the Wildcats. The final rotation closed out on the balance beam, as once again the Wildcats dominated the Tigers, outscoring them 49.2-48.625.

Mizzou looks to bounce back at the Hearnes Center on Friday, Feb. 19, when they take on the No. 2 Florida Gators. To keep up to date with all things Mizzou gymnastics, follow the team on Twitter @MizzouGym or head on over to mutigers.com.
