As is expected in January, the rankings completely shook up as Lindenwood shot back to the top after putting up a huge 195.475. Improvement was the theme of the week across the USAG as everyone got back in the groove of competition. Considering the number of 9.8-plus routines this week, we’d say it was a weekend to remember. Keep up with the USAG as the rankings continue to shift throughout the season. It’s still anyone’s game.

Walker knows how to hit under pressure, but watching her on beam is an absolute dream. She’s cool, calm, collected and makes watching beam enjoyable.
