Terrier STUNT Snags Two Wins in Home Opener

Terrier STUNT Snags Two Wins in Home Opener

The Terrier STUNT team pulled their season record over the .500 mark as they earned a pair of victories in their first home dates of the year on Sunday afternoon.

The Hiram squad dominated their competition throughout the afternoon, earning a 14-4 victory over the Comets of Olivet, before snagging a 14-2 win over Tiffin University.

Both matchups were played as abbreviated games. Instead of doing four routines in the first three quarters, and three in quarter four, the two sides played three routines in quarters 1-3 and two in quarter four, for a possibility of 15 points.

In each game, Hiram came just one point shy of perfection. The Terriers first opened the day with the matchup against the Comets of Olivet, whom they had defeated 14-4 in their previous meeting at Davenport University.

After dropping the initial point in the opening quarter, the Terriers rallied to take the next two in partner stunts, leading 2-1 after one.

Following a short, two-minute, break, Hiram proceeded to snag all three points in pyramids and tosses, leading 5-1 at the half.

The Terriers pushed their lead yet again in the third quarter, earning a trio of points in jumps and tumbling. Improving on last week, Hiram took the frame 3-1, after narrowly pulling off a 3-2 advantage in the same quarter on Jan. 27.

In the final frame, the team routine, the Terriers captured all six of the possible points, rounding out the scoring at 14-4 for the second-consecutive week.

 In their second game of the afternoon, the Terriers faced off against Tiffin University for the first time this season.

Both competing in their first year, Hiram wasted little time in controlling the game, posting all six of the possible points in both the partner stunts and pyramids and tosses quarters.

Leading 6-0 out of the half, the Terriers once again controlled the third quarter. Hiram earned a perfect 3-0 decision in jumps and tumbling to push their lead to 9-0 after three.

In the team routine, The Dragons posted a pair of points, but Hiram once again controlled the action, taking five points to round out the final, 14-2.

In Hiram's three victories this season, including two over the Comets and Sunday afternoon over Tiffin, the Terriers have earned all possible points in nine of the 12 quarters.

Hiram will be back in action on February 17 as they travel to Michigan to compete at Alma College. While there, the Terriers will face off with Ferris and Oakland University.
