The Big Storyline: After a sub-par vault rotation, Oklahoma rallied with three event scores over 49.600, capped off by Ragan Smith’s long awaited beam 10.0. Texas Woman’s finally put another complete meet together to post a season high team score.
Implications: Oklahoma will hold onto its No. 2 spot in the country, narrowly holding off a surging Utah team. With two scores over 198 in a row, the Sooners are silencing the naysayers who thought the team didn’t have what it takes to contend for the title this year. Audrey Davis and Ragan Smith stole the show today, but Oklahoma will want to make some improvements on vault from this week to stay in the race. The Sooners will not be able to so heavily rely on the strength of the other events forever. TWU brought the heat, unbothered by getting iced in earlier this week. Led by season highs on bars and beam, the Pioneers were able to inch closer to the top five in the USAG rankings. Hopefully the hot-and-cold meets are over for TWU and the season will continue to go up from here.
Records: Audrey Davis tied her career high 9.975 on bars while Ragan Smith posted career highs on beam and floor with a 10.0 and 9.975, respectively. Kat LeVasseur tallied a 9.975 of her own to get a career high on beam.
Controversies: We sound like a broken record, but why is the second-best team in the country being streamed on such obscure streaming services?
