The Dismount: Week 10

In the final week before the conference championships, we pretty much had everything you could ask for in NCAA gymnastics. There was a perfect 10, upsets, program records, collegiate debuts, senior night tears, rankings flip flops and more. Catch up on what you missed below.

Biggest Surprise

Michigan, vault, 49.800

The Wolverines shocked us all with a lineup with six 10.0 start values. Abby Heiskell and Reyna Guggino each debuted new Yurchenko 1.5s, and the team totaled a staggering 49.800 on the event. That’s tied for the second-best total in NCAA history per statistician friend of the site Drew Porche. 

Best Consolation Prize

LIU, 193.100 

The Sharks continued their upward trajectory by earning 48-plus on all four events and besting their previous season and program high by over a full point. 

Biggest Upset


No. 21 Illinois shattered its program record 197.350 set in 2015 with a 197.575 in an upset over No. 7 Minnesota. It even got a shoutout from the athletic director! The Illini and Gophers will meet again next week in the Big Ten conference championship night session.

The Taylor Houchin Award 

Lynnzee Brown, floor, 9.975

Denver senior Lynnzee Brown earned her third consecutive 9.975 on floor at BYU this weekend. Third. The senior is poised for something great this postseason.

Most Brilliant Floor Music

Cameron Kelperis, floor, 9.700

Sweet Dreams by the Eurythmics is the most perfect floor music we never thought of. We somehow missed this in San Jose State’s first televised meet last week, but thankfully, got it together this week and were treated to Kelperis’ set.

Senior Moment

Mercedez Sanchez (San Jose State)

We’ll admit we got a little teary seeing Sanchez perform in Pauley for the first time.
