No. 4 Michigan at No. 1 Oklahoma: Full Results
OU: 198.075 | UM: 197.275
VT: Jackson 9.975 | UB: Lehrmann, Capps 9.95 | BB: Capps, Marinez 9.925 | FX: Scaman 9.975 | AA: Capps 39.675Michigan needed a strong score and got just that. With its third 197 of the season and first on the road, the Wolverines lost to Oklahoma 198.075-197.275. It was also Oklahoma’s season-high and first 198 of the year. The Sooners continued to dominate, doing so with a number of career-highs. Ali Jackson had a 9.975 on vault for her nailed Yurchenko one and a half and Nicole Lehrmann and Chayse Capps put up 9.95 career-highs on bars. The team also tallied a massive 49.7 on floor for its second-highest mark on the event in program history. haley Scaman won floor with a near-perfect 9.975 and Capps won the all around with a 39.675. Michigan put up a number of strong scores as well. Freshman Olivia Karas had 9.95s on vault


and floor and Lauren Marinez had a career-high 9.925 on beam.
No. 7 LSU at No. 2 Florida: Full Results
LSU: 197.900 | UF: 197.875
VT: Gnat 9.95 | UB: Caquatto 9.925 | BB: Gnat 9.925 | FX: Gnat 9.95 | AA: Baker 39.625For the first time in 22 years, LSU came to Florida and left with a win. The upset also snapped the Gators’ regular-season home win streak that dated back to the 2008 season. But it was really a great outcome for both teams. LSU scored its highest total of the year,andit was on the road. Florida also put up a very strong mark for its second-highest of the season. Alex McMurtry competed on floor for the first time in her collegiate career, scoring a 9.9, which tied the highest debut score on an event by a Florida gymnast. Bridget Sloan had an off night, falling on beam for the second week in a row and stepping out of bounds on floor. Alex McMurtry fell on bars in a fluke mistake as well, but still scored a 38.8 in the all around, meaning she would have had around a 39.7 had she hit in her usual fashion. For LSU, it was a homecoming for Ashleigh Gnat who is from Lake Mary, Fla. Gnat sealed the victory for the Tigers with a 9.95 on beam. She also had a 9.95s on vault and floor. Kennedy Baker won the all around with a 39.625.


No. 10 Georgia at No. 3 Alabama: Full Results
Bama: 197.550 | UGA: 195.700
VT: Beers: 10.0 | UB: Winston 9.975 | BB: Guerrero 9.95 | FX: Beers, Winston 9.975 | AA: Jay 39.35It was senior night for the Crimson Tide and the scores definitely reflected. Perfect 10s and 9.975s were flying around like fruit flies. But in a touching gesture before the meet, not only were the Alabama seniors Lauren Beers and Carley Sims honored but Georgia’s Mary Beth Box, Brandie Jay, Brittany Rogers and Anysia Unick were as well. But after the pre-meet festivities, it was back to business in one of NCAA gymnastics’ biggest rivalries. Beers started off the night for the Tide with a perfect 10 on vault. Kiana Winston continued with near-perfect 9.975s on bars and floor. Beers also had a matching 9.975 on floor. Ari Guerra and Katie Bailey also had 9.9s on bars and Nickie Guerrero a 9.95 on beam. Aja Sims and Amanda Jetter added a 9.9 and 9.925 on beam and floor, respectively. For


Georgia, the struggles started early, with two uncharacteristic falls on bars from Natalie Vaculik and Rogers. The team bounced back well on floor but continued to have a hard time on beam, having to count a fall after both Vaculik and Ashlyn Broussard fell. Jay continued her streak of all-around wins, picking up the title after posting a 9.9 on bars for a 39.35 total.
No. 5 Utah at No. 14 California: Full Results
Utah: 197.025 | Cal: 196.750
VT:Hughes 9.9 | UB: Hughes 9.9 | BB: Draghi, Stover 9.9 | FX: Hughes 9.925 | AA: Rowe 39.45Coming off a bad meet last weekend at Oregon State, Cal was back home to face off against Utah. While the whole team looked to improve its performance, the most crucial contributed had to be Toni-Ann Williams. When she’s off, the team suffers. And she did get back to her normal self, albeit a watered down one. Williams “only” competed her Yurchenko full and front full beam dismount rather than their harder counterparts. Utah seemed a high road score to help bump itself up in the standings. But yet another low 197 situated it right where it’s been performing all season. The Utes had to deal with a couple of nagging injuries, so it’s depth was tested in Berkeley. Baely Rowe compete in the all around for the first time this season, adding floor to her night and winning the AA


with a 39.45. Breanna Hughes also continued to excel, winning three events with 9.9s or higher.
No. 46 Arizona State at No. 6 UCLA: Full Results
UCLA: 196.625 | ASU: 192. 950
VT: Allex, Preston 9.85 | UB: DeJesus 9.925 | BB: Ohashi 9.9 | FX: Bynum 9.95 | AA: Salas 39.05It was another opportunity for UCLA to explore depth as Danusia Francis, Angi Cipra and Peng-Peng Lee were out of the lineups. Lee had a knee scope and will be out for a few weeks. The absences allowed those with less experience to gain more before the postseason. Stella Savvidou, a freshman that only joined the team in January, competed on beam while Nicki Shapiro added bars to her set. Vault started off rough as the team only had two scores above 9.775. But Arizona State struggled more withthreescores in the 8s on bars. The Sun Devils brought it back together on beam and floor to finish with a near-193. After it was all over, the Bruins took it easily but didn’t get the score they were looking for this week. However


the mid-196 was about as much as they could expect without Francis, Lee and Cipra.
No. 16 Missouri at No. 8 Auburn: Full Results
Auburn: 197.200 | Missouri: 196.625
VT: Harris, Porter 9.9 | UB: Atkinson 9.9 | BB: Ward 9.925 | FX: Atkinson 9.95 | AA: Atkinson 39.625In front of 6,243 fans, Auburn picked up another win, this time over Missouri in yet another battle fo the Tigers. Auburn’s 197.200, just 0.075 shy of its season-high, was a strong mark that should keep it in the hunt for the last night session spot at the SEC championships. Missouri had a great outing as well despite the loss, totaling its fifth-best beam rotation in program history and freshman Morgan Porter’s 39.450 in the all around was the second-highest by a freshman for Missouri. Its total of 196.625 was its highest road score since 2007. Auburn’s Caitlin Atkinson won the meet’s all around title with a 39.625 after notching a 9.95 on floor and 9.9s on bars and beam. Britney Ward continued her success on beam, scoring a 9.925 for the


event win. Kennedi Harris also had a 9.9 on vault to tie Porter’s mark and share the apparatus title.
No. 22 Kentucky at No. 9 Arkansas: Full Results
Ark: 197.225 | UK: 196.700
VT: Stuart 9.9 | UB: Freier, Speed, Zaziski 9.925 | BB: Hyland 9.925 | FX: Wellick 9.95 | AA: Wellick 39.6In its annual pink meet, Arkansas matched or surpasses more than a few records. The team’s 197.225 tied its program record total while its bar score of a 49.550 is its highest-ever in Barnhill Arena. Kentucky got in on the fun as well, scoring a massive 196.700, smashing its previous season-high of 196.050. Wildcat freshman Katie Stuart had a 9.9 on vault while fellow classmate Sidney Dukes scores the same mark on beam. Alex Hyland had a 9.925 on beam and Cori Rechenmacher had a 9.9 on the same event. For the Razorbacks, Amanda Wellick own the all around with two 9.9s, a 9.95 on floor and a 9.85 to equal a 39.6. Paige Zaziski, Braie Speed and Erin Freier had 9.925s on bars and Samantha Nelson had a 9.9 on beam and floor. Stephani Canizaro also added a 9.9 on the final event of the night for Arkansas.


No. 11 Boise State at No. 30 Utah State: Full Results
Boise: 196.425 | USU: 194.675
VT: Krentz 9.85 | UB: Jacobsen 9.9 | BB: Urquhart, Remme 9.85 | FX: Collantes 9.875 | AA: Remme 39.175For the sixth week in a row, Boise State posted a 196 total to keep its name in the conversation for nationals. All but one score this season had been below the 196-mark for the Broncos, and that was the very first meet of the season. Shani Remme won the all around with a 39.175 and Krystine Jacobsen scored a 9.9 on bars. Utah State had some trouble on bars and beam, counting a fall on each event, but still managed an overall good performance for a 194.675.


No. 12 Stanford at No. 17 Oregon State: Full Results
OSU: 196.325 | Stan: 196.250
VT: Price 9.9 | UB: McMillan, Price 9.95 | BB: Perez, Price, McMillan, Gardiner, Daum, McNair 9.85 | FX: Singley 9.9 | AA: Price 39.550

It all came down to the last routine. With Stanford dealing with a depleted lineup and Oregon State at home, the Beavers were posed to win it. And thanks to freshman McKenna Singley, they did. After Ivana Hong fell on beam, Singley needed a 9.825 on floor to clinch the win for Oregon State. And she didn’t just get that score but notched a career-high with a 9.9. Even more impressive was the fact that Singley wasn’t even supposed to compete in the official lineup. Scheduled for an exhibition, she found out she was up in the anchor spot after the 30-second touch before the rotation began. But that obviously didn’t faze her. Stanford had a solid night despite the adversity it faced. Elizabeth Price continued to defeat all competition in her sight and Nicolette McNair put up yet another trio of 9.8+ scores. However, the mistakes added up and the Cardinal lost another close one, making it harder and harder as the weeks pass to get into a good position for regional competition.


No. 18 Iowa, Illinois-Chicago, No. 49 SEMO at No. 13 Denver: Full Results
DU: 197.350 | Iowa: 196.075 | UIC: 193.000 | SEMO: 192.650
VT: McGee 9.95 | UB: McGee 9.925 | BB: Ross 9.925 | FX: McGee 10.0 | AA: McGee 39.775Killed it. Denver annihilated its previous season high by around a point and broke a plethora of records along the way. In front of a sold-out crowd the Pioneers scored their second-highest total in program history with a 197.350. Nina McGee also had herself a night, breaking the program all around record with a 39.775, tying Chayse Capps and Bridget Sloan for the top all around score of the year and taking four event wins to become the winningest gymnast in scroll history. Iowa also picked up another 196 on the road that should help it jump in the rankings. Last week, the Hawkeyes were ranked No. 18, their


highest since the early 2000s. To cap off the night, UIC finished third followed by SEMO.
No. 39 Bridgeport, No. 38 Northern Illinois, No. 36 Sacramento State at No. 14 Nebraska: Full Results
Neb: 196.400 | Sac State: 194.875 | NIU: 194.350 | Bridgeport: 193.225
VT: Blanske, Breen 9.875 | UB: Carter 9.85 | BB: Breen 9.9 | FX: Blanske 9.9 | AA: Breen 39.475

With depleted depth, Nebraska still managed to put together a strong performance for a mid-196 and a win in its annual Masters Classic. Only seven Huskers competed Saturday, but they picked up four of the five event titles up for grabs. Hollie Blanske and Danielle Breen tied for the vault title with a 9.875, Breen also won beam with a 9.9 and the all around with a 39.475. Blanske added the floor title to her winning night with a 9.9 and also finished second to Breen in the all around by just 0.050. Northern Illinois’ Jamyra Carter won bars with a 9.85.
