It was a record-breaking week of meets, quite literally, with more perfect 10s than we can count and teams breaking program best totals left and right. Catch up on all the highlights, top routines, implications and more below.
Coolest “Teamwork” Moment
Jade Carey, Sunisa Lee, Grace McCallum, bars, Jordan Chiles, floor, 10.0
This Dismount wouldn’t be complete without mentioning this amazing feat. All four 2020 US Olympians that are currently competing in college scored their first perfect 10.0 this weekend. Jade Carey, Sunisa Lee and Grace McCallum all scored theirs on bars, and Jordan Chiles scored hers on floor.
Feel Good Performance of the Week
Maddie Quarles, floor, 9.900
After a six-year hiatus from the apparatus, Maddie Quarles made her floor debut for Minnesota this weekend. There’s nothing that warms the heart more than seeing an athlete overcome adversity to compete again, and Quarles did it in style. Perhaps after knocking this routine out of the park, she’ll be here to stay.
BTN+ Goof of the Week
Yeah, we’re just giving BTN+ its own category. It’s something every single week. This week, a misspelling of one of the best gymnasts in the country. Pretty rough! Never mind that the graphic didn’t get updated when the projected lineups changed, so you had nonsense like Tyson, who went up in the two spot, listed at the bottom with a score behind all of those zeroes for gymnasts who hadn’t competed yet.
Head Coach Joanne Bowers, San Jose State
San Jose State last finished in the top 36 back in 2014, but Coach Bowers knew back in November that this year’s team could be a regionals contender. Not only are the Spartans currently ranked 33rd, they broke 196 this weekend for the first time in program history with a 196.550.
Best Under-the-Radar Performance
Deja Chambliss, George Washington
The graduate student proved once again why she’s a perennial favorite among fantasy gymnastics players, earning a perfect score on vault and a career-high 39.425 in the all-around.
