UC Davis at UCLA


Full Results UCLA: 197.700 UC Davis: 193.975
VT: Campbell 9.950 UB: Chiles 9.950 BB: Malabuyo 10.000 FX: Campbell 10.000 AA: Campbell 39.725

The Big Storyline: The Bruins continued their massive turnaround from their beginning of the season struggles, posting their third straight 197-plus score thanks to a pair of perfect performances from Chae Campbell. She earned her second floor 10 of the season after notching a perfect 9.950 vault for the third week in a row, while freshman Emma Malabuyo added a perfect total of her own on beam. Megan Ray paced the Aggies with a 9.900 on floor to take third on the event.

Implications: UCLA will not move up in the rankings this week with a low road score still limiting its NQS potential. Freshman Brooklyn Moors was absent from lineups, but it was reported that was just due to giving her rest. Chloe Lashbrooke, who has been out of lineups with injury for several years, did an exhibition floor routine.

Records: Malabuyo earned the first 10.0 of her career while senior Norah Flatley upped her floor career-best to a 9.975.


Current Rankings: No. 42 UC Davis at No. 17 UCLA

Why You Should Clear Space on Your DVR: After meeting in a tri meet way back in January, UC Davis and UCLA will face off once again in each team’s final meet before their conference championships. The Bruins exploded for a huge 198 last weekend and would love to keep that positive momentum going to potentially pull an upset at Pac-12s and stay in the hunt for a regionals seed. The Aggies stayed in the hunt for regionals with a road-196 last meet and will need a repeat performance to remain on the bubble.

You Can Fast Forward, but not Through This: Floor is back to its typical Bruin standard, with standouts Chae Campbell and Jordan Chiles notching perfect 10s on the event in back-to-back weeks and Campbell on a two week streak of perfect 9.950 vaults as well. Aggie Kyla Kessler has been 39.375 or higher in the all-around in her last three meets, leading UC Davis and potentially playing spoiler if UCLA’s top gymnasts have an off performance.

The event is finished.
