MONDAY FEBRUARY 20

6:07 pm. UCLA went from a 1+ point lead to winning by just over a tenth, 195.825 to Utah State’s 195.700. Bridgeport is in third with a 193.325.

On floor, the Bruins had two 9.9s in the early half of the rotation, but then had to count a 9.575 from Savvidou, a 9.35 from Ross, and a 9.225 from Kramer, while scrapping Honest’s 9.1. Their total on floor is a 47.950.

But can we talk about how one of those 9.9s was MACY TORONJO!?!?!?!?! That floor routine was AMAZING. I want her in the lineup EVERY WEEK, MISS VAL.

6:05 pm. Ross, UCLA, FX- Nice whip to double tuck. 1.5 to front layout is good. She is on pace for a 39.7+ AA if she hits here soooo GET IT KYLA. Double tuck and puts her hands down. UGHHHHHH.

6:04 pm. Comport, Bridgeport, BB- My favorite! Front aerial to bhs into a scale, good jumps, lovely extension, front aerial to beat jump, big wobble on a skill there but my feed froze and I missed the rest.

6:03 pm. Golison, Utah State, VT- Tsuk full, not bad! Hop back.

6:01 pm. Kramer, UCLA, FX- Front double full with a step, 2.5 is nowhere near where it’s supposed to be in the air and she crashes it on her side, 1.5 is big into a front layout.

6:00 pm. Chiles, Bridgeport, BB- Bhs loso basically STARTS off-center so no idea how she even made it halfway through that, lands pretty much off the beam. Switch to switch side, side aerial landed sideways, full turn, 1.5 with a little hop.

5:59 pm. McIntire, Utah State, VT- Yurchenko tuck full, a little short, two steps back.

5:57 pm. Honest, UCLA, FX- Loooove her opening choreo. Double pike is short, bent knees and chest down on the landing. Front lay front full with a hop. Double tuck is super short and she lands it on her hands so they have to count Stella’s 9.575.

5:56 pm. Reimers, Bridgeport, BB- Great amplitude on beat jump to wolf jump, bhs loso is a little wonky but she hits, side aerial with a bobble, switch to back tuck to split jump with a little wobble, they all do that fanning themselves choreo. Double full with some leg sep and a small hop.

5:55 pm. Hone, Utah State, VT- Yurchenko full-on back tuck off, always love this. Legs get a little crazy in the air and it’s a little short.

5:53 pm. Savvidou, UCLA, FX- Great 2.5 into her arabesque. Her presence is just outstanding. 1.5 to front layout with leg sep landed right on the line. Double turn to split jump full is gorgeous, the extension is brilliant. Double pike is a little short with a step forward and her chest slightly down.

5:51 pm. DiCarlo, Bridgeport, BB- Bhs layout with Raismanesque layout form and it’s way off-center with a fall. Front toss, switch to split jump, beat jump to sheep jump, bhs gainer full with a good landing.

5:50 pm. Ward, Utah State, VT- Her run is so slow and weird but works for her. Big FTY, clean, but also a big hop back.

5:48 pm. Toronjo, UCLA, FX- SOOOOO EXCITED to finally see this. Omg this opening is so phenomenal, choreo-wise. Omg Jordyn in the background looks like a grown up lady?!?!?!Excellent double pike. Big excellent double tuck. 1.5 to front layout. NEVER GET INJURED AGAIN, I WANT THIS EVERY SINGLE WEEK.

5:47 pm. Campbell, Bridgeport, BB- Front toss with a wobble. Switch to straddle side, front toss to back tuck, so that first front toss missed the connection. Stuck 1.5! Nice there.

5:46 pm. Brown, Utah State, VT- Yurchenko layout half, very clean, small hop forward.

5:44 pm. Ohashi, UCLA, FX- Double tuck is fantastic. Her middle pass with all the skills is good, I can never remember what they are if I don’t type them as they go. Well, I remember straddle to front tuck. Either way, it’s good. Big double pike with a solid landing.

5:43 pm. Tralli, Bridgeport, BB- Full turn (check), bhs loso (another check), switch leap to straddle side, straddle full is maybe at 90 degrees, 1.5 with a deep landing and a hop forward.

5:42 pm. Estrella, Utah State, VT- Great FTY! Excellent landing, practically stuck, and looked mostly good in the air.

5:36 pm. UCLA now leads 147.875 to Utah State’s 146.775 and Bridgeport’s 146.050 going into the final rotation! 49.275 for UCLA on beam after dropping Madison’s 9.6, but they had to count a 9.725 and two 9.8s.

5:32 pm. Ward, Utah State, FX- Open tucked full-in! Nice. 1.5 to front half, that looked SOOOO EASY for her. She floated through it. Excellent double tuck.

5:31 pm. Ohashi, UCLA, BB- Bhs bhs layout full only with a slight check. Switch to split jump, full turn, front aerial, bhs loso layout full stuck on her toes. If she gets that layout full under control she’ll get a 10 someday.

5:30 pm. Liataud, Bridgeport, UB- Giant full to Deltchev to overshoot, really cool. Whenever I see legs going into the Deltchev I’m like what are you doing?!?! because it always looks so awkward. Giant full to double tuck, a little cowboyed and underrotated, small hop.

5:27 pm. Golison, Utah State, FX- Double layout, really big, bounces out of it. Front lay front half to straddle jump. Front full front full, nice.

5:26 pm. Lee, UCLA, BB- Homma flairs, crowd loves it. Nice leaps, bhs layout with a big wobble and leg up, but she brings it back under control. Lovely double turn to beat jump. Punch front tuck with a big check. Good front full dismount.

5:25 pm. Campbell, Brigeport, UB- Weird form on the front giant into her straddle Jaeger, bail, messy full-in with a big hop back.

5:23 pm. McIntire, Utah State, FX- Good landing on her opening double tuck. Front full front lay. Oh my GOD my feed skipped here and I wasn’t really paying attention so I heard Sam say “front layout front layout front layout front layout front layout” and I was like is she really just doing nonstop front layouts? LOLOL. Finished with a solid double pike.

5:22 pm. YAS that got a 10! Kyla’s third 10 and first on beam! Yay, she’s so happy. Look at Deanna Hong filming her reaction.

4:58 pm. UCLA extends the lead to nearly a point at 98.6 to Utah State’s 97.7 and Bridgeport’s 97.3.

4:56 pm. Oster, Utah State, BB- Side aerial to bhs, I thought it was supposed to be to a loso, but close enough.

4:28 pm. Comport, Bridgeport, FX- Loooove this routine but I love her beam MORE. Lost control a tiny bit on her jumps but it was barely noticeable…great extension though. Rudi loso is good. Front lay front full to stag is excellent. Rudi to finish is lovely.

4:27 pm. Peel, Utah State, UB- Clean handstand into her Tkachev to overshoot, great handstand before giant full (ankle sep) to double tuck, a little poorly rotated, step back to control it.

4:25 pm. Ross, UCLA, VT- Good FTY. Bounce on the landing.

4:24 pm. Cutolo, Bridgeport, FX- Rudi loso, not bad. On a big mat so kinda hard to tell how good the landing was but considering it was on a tricky surface it looked good. Front double full is actually gorgeous. Good Rudi to finish.

4:14 pm. Savvidou, UCLA, VT- Her first time vaulting. Very clean FTY in the air, hop back. Extension in the air is gorgeous, just a slight pike when she approaches the landing.

4:13 pm. Quinn, Bridgeport, FX- Double pike, amplitude on jumps is nowhere near where it needs to be, second jump is maybe at 100 degrees. Big double tuck with a lunge back. Wolf full to wolf full combo is also a little low. Little stumble on front full front pike.

4:12 pm. Ward, Utah State, UB- Jaeger to overshoot, full-in with a hop back. Not bad, just some little clean-up areas.

4:10 pm. Honest, UCLA, VT- FTY, a little messy and underrotated, chest down with a hop forward.

4:09 pm. Campbell, Bridgeport, FX- I love Bridgeport getting to compete against UCLA. Front tuck through to double tuck is great. Front full front pike, great landing on her 2.5 but her legs in the air are a little rough.

5:44 pm. Washington needs a 9.775 in its last routine to go 197!

Schneider, Arizona, BB- Front toss to bhs, straddle jump to sissone, beat jump to sheep jump, stuck front full! Very nice.

5:34 pm. Duranczyk, Washington, FX- Front tuck through to double pike, fabulous. Big double tuck, slightly over-rotated but she saves the landing nicely.

5:31 pm. Cowles, Arizona, BB- Full turn, front aerial with a check, probably meant to connect that for her series because she dances backwards out of it? Lots of dancing going on lol…prob trying to figure out what to do. Switch to split jump. Here we go, front aerial to bhs, got it perfectly this time. Standing loso. Gainer front full with a hop.

5:29 pm. Janik, Washington, BB- Double pike lands too far forward on her feet and bounces her forward toward the floor, hands down. Solid Rudi. 1.5 to front layout.

5:16 pm. HUGE 49.425 for Washington on beam! They extend their lead by over a point, 147.775 to Arizona’s 146.525 I think after Arizona struggled with only five routines on floor.

5:11 pm. Burleson, Washington, BB- They’re killing it on beam right now. Front aerial to bhs is lovely. Split leap, straddle to straddle side, side aerial layout full stuck. NICE.

5:09 pm. Schneider, Arizona, FX- Double pike looks a little tentative on the landing, front lay front full is good, omg these 90s hip hop jams were my life, no diggity. I hope Tabitha chose all of this. Double tuck with a deep landing and buckled legs but she pulls it out.

5:07 pm. Goings, Washington, BB- BEAUTIFUL bhs bhs loso. Lovely full turn, great standing loso, side aerial to stuck layout full. EXCELLENT.

5:05 pm. Howard, Arizona, FX- They don’t have Sheppard so they have to count Laub’s 9.55…I think I missed an OOB from her. Howard starts with a big double tuck into a great lunge back. Front lay front full with a deep landing. Double pike is solid.

5:03 pm. Nelson, Washington, BB- Bhs loso, smooth full turn, switch to split 3/4, solid front toss, holds on to the 1.5 landing.

4:56 pm. Swanson, Arizona, FX- Nice Rudi. That’s all I saw.

Priessman, LSU, FX- I actually love this routine. First pass is good, front lay front full has a weird stumble sideways into her jump, double pike is great.

4:55 pm. Edney, LSU, FX- Big double arabian, great landing! 1.5 to front layout, double back to finish is fab. But then she dabs and I immediately take her score down seven points.

4:40 pm. Swanson, Arizona, VT- Clean FTY with a little bounce back.

4:38 pm. Leung, Arizona, VT- FTY, a little low, you can see her bent elbows on her block, so the landing’s a little short but she hits.

Duranczyk, Washington, UB- Big Jaeger to overshoot, stuck double layout out of only two giants, awesome!

4:36 pm. Sheppard, Arizona, VT- Yurchenko layout half OH NO, looks great in the air like it’s going to be a really good landing but JAMS her knee and immediately jumps down to the mat because she’s clearly in tons of pain. 😦 They’re carrying her off while the rest of the team huddles with Tabitha.

Burleson, Washington, UB- Huge Tkachev, super clean bail, giant full to double tuck which SAILS down into the landing. Beautiful and stuck.

4:33 pm. Washington, Washington, UB- Tee hee I love Washington Washington. Clear hip to SUPERB Gienger, NO leg break AT ALL. Super clean bail, great handstand before giants to full-in dismount, landed with legs apart but stuck.

Mattson, Arizona, VT- Yurchenko layout half with a hop.

Priessman just exhibitioned for LSU and it wasn’t bad! Just wobbly and with a break in her series.

4:30 pm. Laub, Arizona, VT- Decent enough FTY to start them out.

Nelson, Washington, UB- Short handstand before blind change to straddle Jaeger, caught with legs apart and a jerky swing to break the rhythm slightly but she controls it quickly., nice pak, stuck double tuck.

Gnat, LSU, BB- Full turn, switch to straddle side, big switch side with a bobble, nice bhs loso. I’m always like “did I miss her flight series” and forget it’s her last skill. Double full with a hop.

Felix-Terrazas, Arizona, VT- FTY, form could be a little better, step back.

4:29 pm. Finnegan, LSU, BB- Full wolf turn instead of the triple, not worth risking after they had a fall earlier, bhs loso, beautiful switch to switch half, side somi is effortless, side aerial layout full! Fab. Judging has been tight today but on any other day that could’ve gone 10. Would’ve gone 10 at that hilarious St Louis quad on Friday.

Li had a 9.925 btw so HEY DD cut it out and use her.

4:27 pm. Li, LSU, BB- Front aerial to bhs loso, love it. Switch to back loso. I’m confused about why they don’t use her more often…I guess too many other big names but I’d regularly use her over Hambrick. I remember she was fab in her debut for LSU. Cat leap to switch side, tiny bobble. Stuck gainer full.

4:24 pm. Ewing, LSU, BB- Bhs layout with a little hesitation on the landing but covers it up well. Cat leap to big switch side, full turn, standing loso to straddle side. Basically stuck the 1.5.

4:21 pm. Ortiz, Arizona, UB- Huuuuge wait for Spencer’s score. Judges are like wtf do we do with this lol. They’re conferencing like crazy. Huuuuge Tkachev to overshoot, giant full to stuck double tuck. Awesome routine after that fall before her.

Hambrick, LSU, BB- Full L turn, hitch kick to side aerial with a big wobble, bhs loso with a wobble, double full with a step.

4:20 pm. Macadaeg, LSU, BB- Nice leaps, bhs loso, way off-center and she flies right off the beam. Gainer full with a little step.

4:19 pm. Burleson, Washington, VT- Huge stuck FTY! Beautiful. Her lines in the air are just phenomenal.

4:17 pm. Spencer, Arizona, UB- She saluted too soon and is confused hahaha. Nice handstand before Gienger (leg sep), holds a handsand for 900 years and has to swing herself around a bit to get back on track but it’s not a hugely noticeable mistake for most I don’t think. Bail, but then in her giants she kind of bails out of doing her dismount? Starts swinging her giants again but then stops swinging and jumps off so must’ve lost her rhythm on that high bar fluke before the bail. Ends up saluting, doesn’t bother getting back up at all for the dismount, I guess not worth it?

4:16 pm. Yacalis, Washington, VT- Clean FTY with a fab landing, basically stuck with her feet apart.

4:15 pm. Berg, Arizona, UB- Big piked Jaeger, bail, full-in with a little hop.

4:12 pm. Goings, Washington, VT- Clean FTY with a fab landing. Not very big but still very nice.

4:09 pm. Howard, Arizona, UB- I missed this.

You wanna know why? I finally trapped a mouse that has been living in my room all night in a grocery bag and had to run him out into the hallway. #HUMANE

I also missed the second Washington vault. Hayley Roy I think.

Hendrickson, Arizona, UB- Finished with a double layout.

4:08 pm. Zurawski, Iowa, FX- Double pike is great. Front full front lay with a little stumble. Rudi to finish looks solid.

4:05 pm. Winstanley, GWU, BB- Front aerial to front toss, loooove that so much. Switch to straddle side, full turn, double full with a hop. Very nice.

4:04 pm. I really love watching Erin Macadaeg prep for beam and a woman in the crowd drink a soda instead of seeing other teams on beam and floor!

4:03 pm. Priessman, LSU, UB- Tkachev to pak, her cleanest yet! Double layout with a little slide back.

3:49 pm. LSU is at 49.575, George Washington at 48.9, and Iowa at 48.425.

Picture LSU at nationals with 1.5s from Harrold, Hambrick, Priessman, Ewing, and Edney and a DTY from Gnat. I’m basically sobbing?? It’s gonna be so good.

3:46 pm. Metcalf, Iowa, BB- Switch to straddle side, bhs bhs loso with her leg up but she falls, so Iowa will count a fall. Hit a big leap series, 1.5 with a hop.

3:40 pm. Pfeiler, GWU, UB- Gienger caught close with bent elbows, good last handstand, giant full to double tuck with a little hop.

3:39 pm. Gnat, LSU, VT- As one of the commentators just said, the lineup set her up for a perfect score if she sticks…but she has some noticeable form issues in the air on her DTY and hops forward on the landing.

3:38 pm. Edney, LSU, VT- Yurchenko 1.5, STUCK and HUGE. WHAAAAAT.

3:37 pm. Winstanley, GWU, UB- Gienger, leg sep, good bail, that’s all they showed. They have three routines going up at once so we’re probably gonna be all about LSU since this is technically the SEC+ network.

3:36 pm. Ewing, LSU, VT- Yurchenko 1.5, also stuck! Dayum?! This team is fully gonna have six 10.0 vaults for nationals and they’re all gonna look fabulous.

3:33 pm. LSU, Iowa, and GWU starting now!

2:53 pm. “They won by one tenth. The judge was handing them scores on beam and our scores were so frustrating. I don’t know what the judges were doing with our scores on beam. They deserved higher scores. Had they given each gymnast 0.025 higher each, less than what they deserved, we would’ve won. When you hand scores out to one team and you’re falling asleep during the other routines, IT’S NOT FAIR. They hit vault, they hit bars, beam was nice and solid, they had one fall but everyone else did their job, they rocked it out on floor, and I don’t know. I think they definitely should’ve won.” Sorry, I am like, enraged by this fool, hahahaha. Like if you’re a fan of a team or a former team member, fine. But if you’re commentating a meet??? Kaleigh Dickson commentated for an LSU meet recently and was super fair to both teams despite CLEARLY being an LSU fan, having competed for the team.

2:46 pm. Central Michigan wins with a 195.775 to Kent State’s 195.675. Nothing against Kent State but I’m happy CMU won by a close margin if only because this commentator will go home and cry in her diary all night. She just laughed at the scores and said “I don’t understand.” #FIRE #HER

2:45 pm. Stypinski, Kent State, FX- Excellent double layout. 2.5 to front layout with a small hop back. Beautiful! 9.925

“Now I’m SURE the judges didn’t blink for Clements’ routine the way they did for us because THAT’S just the type of scores they’ve been handing them! Where were these scores for us?” Seriously this girl needs to stop. It’s not “US,” you’re NOT ON THE FREAKING TEAM. YOU’RE COMMENTATING A MEET. #STAB

2:38 pm. That was UNH coach Gail Goodspeed’s 600th win, by the way!

2:37 pm. Plaksa, CMU, BB- Bhs, back foot slipped and she landed on her back onto the beam, which knocked her to the ground, but she looks okay. Does it again, bhs loso, and it’s perfect this time, NBD.

2:17 pm. Breeden, UNH, FX- Stuck double pike! Beautiful double tuck. Stuck 1.5 to front layout!

After a huge 49.225 on floor, CMU maintains the lead at 147.350 to Kent State’s 146.525. Kent State had a 48.550 on beam…they didn’t have to count Stypinski’s fall but had two 9.6-range scores after big mistakes on two routines.

Oliveiri, Temple, BB- Full turn, good bhs loso, side aerial with a slight check to hold on, punch tuck full stuck on her toes.

SATURDAY FEBRUARY 18

11:51 pm. Utah wins with 197.875 to UCLA’s 197.500. Scoring started out well! And then got borderline ridiculous. And then turned the arena into a dumpster fire. #NCAAGym

11:46 pm. Skinner, Utah, FX- Perfect double double! I never watch her jumps so I’m gonna try to catch them but tbh I am so autopilot with routines, because in elite when it’s four routines at a time, I watch floor tumbling and then put my eyes elsewhere to catch other skills haha. Oh, yeah, I missed her leaps. 1.5 through to double full, and a full-in to finish. Incredible as always! 9.95

11:44 pm. Ohashi, UCLA, BB- YAAAAS the layout full series was excellent! Switch to split to beat jump, full turn with a slight check, front aerial, hit dismount. YAS. 9.85

11:21 pm. That little bit with MyKayla talking about her double double sounded like she was giving a eulogy, it was so bizarre.

11:18 pm. Utah extends its lead by 0.05 in a meet where every half tenth counts. The Red Rocks lead UCLA 148.200 to 147.950.

11:15 pm. Mossett, UCLA, FX- Whip to double tuck, yas. Loveeee her choreo so much and the crowd actually kinda loves it too. Her back handsprings look super low and slow and I expected her to land the double pike on her head but she somehow got more than enough height?! #Magic Well-deserved 9.925 for her.

Utah has gotten a 49.4 on every single event so far! Kinda fun.

11:13 pm. Rowe, Utah, BB- Switch to straddle side with a bobble, excellent bhs bhs loso, full turn en dedans to full turn en dehors, always a favorite. She’s singing along to her “Man in the Mirror” music and gets the big applause for the moonwalk as always. 1.5 stuck. 9.925

11:11 pm. Cipra, UCLA, FX- Big double tuck. 1.5 to front half to straddle jump to front tuck, oh HI Katelyn Ohashi 2.0. Double pike way short, big step forward with her chest down. 9.825

11:07 pm. Kocian, UCLA, FX- Nice front double full, 1.5 to Rudi into a jump, great. Jumps get really excellent amplitude. I want Martha Karolyi to come back just to watch Madison doing this routine. Just want to see her face. Double pike a little short. 9.925

11:05 pm. Skinner, Utah, BB- Bhs loso is solid, I always laugh that her beam music is “The Climb.” Side aerial to sissone, switch leap to split jump, not at 180, full L turn is excellently controlled, perfect straddle jump to back tuck!!! Gets applause when she flashes the U. Double tuck, looks like she wanted the stick too badly and she’s off a little with her rotation, big step forward…but it’s very clean in the air at least! 9.875

11:03 pm. Ohashi, UCLA, FX- Big double tuck. 1.5 to front half to split jump to front tuck down into the split, YAS as always. Double pike is good, just a little low with her chest position. But a fab routine. 9.85

10:57 pm. Merrell, Utah, BB- Switch leap to split jump, bhs bhs loso with the tiniest check to center herself, front aerial, great full turn, double full dismount, legs are completely tucked. Looked like she kinda missed her footing on the punch and kind of started to bail out a little. 9.825

10:55 pm. Honest, UCLA, FX- Omg she’s been working on her toe point with a ballet foot stretcher, bless. Big double pike. Front lay front full with a hop forward. OMGGGG I love that little piece in her routine so much where she does like, the back layout basically to a backwards Shushunova, I forgot that was a thing and just got so excited about it. Big double tuck. Excellent. 9.825

10:53 pm. Stover, Utah, BB- Perfect full turn, front aerial to bhs, solid, great jumps, she does something super weird with her legs when she lands stuff…like, she turns them in? Cartwheel to gainer full, excellent landing, just brings her heels together. 9.85

10:49 pm. Utah has the lead, 98.8 to UCLA’s 98.6. Even with a few little weirdo scoring things, I’d say that makes sense. Utah’s bars rotation was definitely superior to UCLA’s vault.

10:48 pm. Rowe, Utah, UB- Giant full to Tkachev is very nice, clean bail, double layout with some leg sep and a hop. 9.925

10:47 pm. Preston, UCLA, VT- FTY, huge but waaaaaay off in the air, like…she was a little too excited and lost air awareness or something. Whipped it around but is off to the side and facing the wrong direction, has to take a step to bring it the rest of the way around. 9.75

10:46 pm. Lewis, Utah, UB- Giant full a little late to huge Tkachev, bail, clean double layout with a hop back and her feet looked a little flexed. 9.9

10:44 pm. Lee, Utah, UB- Big piked Jaeger to overshoot, very clean full-in with a hop back. 9.775

10:43 pm. Cipra, UCLA, VT- Solid FTY, 9.85.

10:42 pm. Skinner, Utah, UB- Maloney (leg sep) to bail (nice), great handstand before toe-on to full-in, stuck cold! In the replay you can see her ‘great handstand’ was actually arched over. I HATE the handstand angle on these broadcasts!!! SHOW FROM THE SIDE. 9.925

10:41 pm. Kocian, UCLA, VT- Decent FTY, leg sep throughout with a hop back. 9.825

10:40 pm. Reinstadtler, Utah, UB- Toe half to straddle Jaeger, bail, full-in with messy legs and a couple of steps back. 9.825

10:32 pm. NATURALLY it’s 49.4 to 49.4 right now. I hope it stays tied for the REST OF THE MEET.

10:30 pm. Lee, UCLA, UB- Huge Ray, Bhardwaj caught a little close and muscled, maybe missed a hand or something? Kathy’s freaking out but I didn’t even see what happened? She kind of has a coach blocking her for the rest of the routine lol, van Leeuwen looked good, double layout but I couldn’t see the landing because of a coach. 9.45

10:29 pm. Skinner, Utah, VT- DTY, huge, just a hop back, about a foot. If only she could control her landings…she’d be in 10 city no problem. 9.925.

10:28 pm. Ross, UCLA, UB- Maloney to perfect bail to toe shoot, double layout stuck cold. Yeah, that was perfect. Literally perfect. The judges think so too! 10.0

10:27 pm. Lewis, Utah, VT- FTY, a couple of steps back and her body isn’t fully extended in the air. 9.85

10:26 pm. Kocian, UCLA, UB- Clean first handstand, Chow to pak (ankle sep), Chow half (slight leg sep), stalder to full-in with a hop and then a step back. 9.85

8:32 pm.

8:11 pm. Cal leads 98.625 to Oregon State’s 98.375 after a 49.475 on bars. Some of the judging is questionable at best BUT Cal is usually on the losing end of score fudgery so I’ll let them have it.

8:10 pm. Gallarzo, Cal, UB- Lovely control on her first handstand, big straddle Jaeger to clean overshoot, another beautiful handstand, and a nice double layout, slides her feet together.

8:09 pm. Dessaints, OSU, VT- BEAUTIFUL basically stuck Yurchenko 1.5!!! Her legs are SUPER GLUED throughout the whole thing. Just a tiny little foot movement on the landing.

8:07 pm. McMillan, OSU, UB- Whips around a 1.5, very aggressive vault. Lots of leg sep when she leaves the table but the landing isn’t bad, small hop forward and to the side a little.

8:06 pm. Sternberg, Cal, UB- Tkachev, clean bail, stalder to double tuck, super clean and stuck! If Shu got a 9.9 (HOW on God’s green earth with those handstands), that needs to go 12.7.

7:50 pm. Richardson, Cal, VT- Tsuk full, leg form is pretty messy throughout and she hops to the side. Oof, in the replay you get a better view of her entry and her legs are practically straddled.

7:49 pm. McMillan, OSU, UB- Hop change to Jaeger to overshoot, fab. Short handstand before giants into her big clean double layout, just slides her heels back.

7:48 pm. Robinson, Cal, VT- Handspring onto the springboard, handspring front pike off, clean pike with a large step forward. Her handspring form is a little messy too…very archy with big leg sep.

7:46 pm. Singley, OSU, UB- Great first handstand, giant full to big Tkachev, bail is super wonky and she muscles to hold it but has to start her swing again, and she keeps getting lost on the low bar, kip casts to full pirouette on the low bar and then kip casts around to get back in the direction she needs. Kind of loses steam so for her dismount she has zero energy and her double layout is super low with a big step forward.

7:45 pm. Peterson, Cal, VT- Omg the STICKS tonight!!! Another big gorgeous stuck FTY. Great in the air and with a nice arm flare.

7:44 pm. Jacobsen, OSU, UB- Short handstand before big Tkachev to clean overshoot, another short handstand, like way short, but she sticks the double front COLD. WOWZERS. Too bad about the handstands.

4:26 pm. Jones, ASU, FX- Excellent double pike. Solid double tuck. 1.5 to low front pike that I think she’s gonna sit but it ends up being totally fine.

4:24 pm. Fitzgerald, Stanford, BB- Ooh, hitch kick to front toss in a LAYOUT! That’s kinda cool even if front tosses are blah. Front aerial to bhs, front layout full with a fight to hold the landing.

7:07 pm. Gowey, Florida, UB- Ray with flexed feet, toe-on to pak, she pikes it down as she catches. Double layout is so weird, no height and so close to the bar…super piked too and her chest is down with a step.

4:55 pm. So yes, a big 197.125 for Nebraska, the powerhouse DI program that was clearly going to win this thing, but the remaining three teams were in quite the battle with DII Lindenwood showing tremendous fight to score a 194 — the program’s fourth straight 194+ score! — to defeat DI Brown (193.350) and fellow DII Seattle Pacific (191.000…SPU had some struggles but I was so impressed with them on vault).

In addition to the team score, Lindenwood had Kiersten Sokolowski place third on beam with a 9.825, ahead of FOUR Nebraska competitors! She also placed fourth on vault with a 9.825, while Caroline Morant of Brown was 2nd on floor with a 9.925, helping her to third place in the all-around with a 38.975.

Nebraska claimed all event titles with Megan Schweihofer and Ashley Lambert tying on vault (9.9), Jennie Laeng winning bars (9.875), Danielle Breen winning beam (9.925), and Taylor Houchin winning floor (9.95).

4:50 pm. I am seeing that Nebraska has a 197.125 which is awesome for them!

4:48 pm. Well, no live scores AND FloPro turned the feed off before we could see the standings because why would we care about seeing who wins a meet that we’re watching?! In baseball, basketball, football, they’re always like “you’re just here for the good times right” and never tell us the scores.

4:40 pm. Oswalt, Lindenwood, FX- She’s here to wrap up what has so far been a strong rotation. There was a fall in the second routine but after that, everything’s been good! Her music sounds like Stranger Things but I don’t think it is. Double tuck bounced backwards. Double pike is clean. Great 1.5 to front layout.

4:37 pm. Alexander, Lindenwood, FX- Double pike with a little bounce and her back leg up. 1.5 to punch front. Double tuck with her chest down.

4:35 pm. Rector, Lindenwood, FX- Double back, love this music, double pike a little short with two steps forward, 1.5 to front layout a little whippy at the end but still a great landing.

4:32 pm. Henry, Lindenwod, FX- Solid double pike. Double tuck. Last pass is also good.

Seattle Pacific’s vault last rotation was a 48.725 by the way! Should be the second-highest vault score of the meet.

4:31 pm. Houchin, Nebraska, VT- Yurchenko 1.5, a little tentative, two steps back.

4:30 pm. Laeng, Nebraska, VT- FTY, super clean, not as big as some of the others though and a little bounce on the landing.

4:29 pm. Lambert, Nebraska, VT- Another FTY, this one’s a tiny bit short but the landing’s still good.

4:28 pm. Schweihofer, Nebraska, VT- BEAUTIFUL stuck FTY. Would be a 10 in other venues but we’ll see, the floor judges were getting pretty nuts today…

4:27 pm. Epperson, Nebraska, VT- Another good FTY, really clean in the air and with a better landing than the first.

4:26 pm. Crouse, Nebraska, VT- Gonna start with Nebraska but then switch when they’re quickly done. Huuuge FTY but also has a huge bounce back.

4:25 pm. Okay, it’s Nebraska with 147.875 after a RIDONKULOUS 49.55 on floor, Lindenwood with 145.425, Brown with 144.9, and Seattle Pacific with 144.2.

4:15 pm. Lambert, Nebraska, FX- The routine I’ve been waiting for all season. This is somehow my first time seeing Nebraska in 2017! I think because they’re always behind a paywall and I’m like #MyNameIsNO. Okay, the camera decided to zoom into her hips for her first pass which was some sort of double back but I CAN’T TELL YOU if it was tucked or piked or laid out. Front tuck through to double tuck second pass is great. Double pike is also solid.

4:13 pm. Crouse, Nebraska, FX- Front double full to punch front tuck, excellent. The Nebraska music is one of the weirdest experiences of my life. This has legit screaming lol. 1.5 to front tuck. Rudi looks a little short but she whips a loso out of it.

4:10 pm. Houchin, Nebraska, FX- They have Houchin’s name up again but this time it ACTUALLY IS HER. Double pike with a slight bounce back. Front full front layout. 2.5 with a little skid on the landing, very minor.

Seattle Pacific just had a fantastic vault rotation.

4:08 pm. Laeng, Nebraska, FX- They keep putting up Houchin for like every single competitor but I’m pretty sure they’re wrong about it every time lol. This is definitely Jennie Laeng. Double pike. Whip half to Rudi, awesome. This music is…something. Perfect front full to front pike.

4:06 pm. Schweihofer, Nebraska, FX- Double layout is a little deep in the landing but looked pretty in the air. Nice double tuck to finish.

Someone from SPU in the background just did like a handspring double full I think…like a legit old school handspring double full, not with a layout or anything. Always fun to see something unique!

4:03 pm. Williams, Nebraska, FX- Ooh, her floor is “Who Run the World”! Fun. Double pike to start. Omg the music changes to “Lip Gloss.” I LOVE THIS MESS hahaha. Rudi, and a double tuck stuck to finish. Great routine.

4:01 pm. Looks like it’s Nebraska in first with a 98.325 followed by Lindenwood after a STELLAR UB rotation with a 96.825, Brown with 96.4, and Seattle Pacific with 95.475. The first half of SPU’s floor was rough but the latter half really brought it…9.875 for Ariana Harger!

3:54 pm. Glover, Seattle Pacific, FX- Why bother putting up gymnasts names if you’re professionally broadcasting the meet? WHO ON EARTH wants to see who’s competing? I’ll get it later from live scores if they ever work but still. #STAB Double pike to start, leg sep in the second flip but not bad. Front layout to front full with a step forward to control it. Double tuck is great.

3:48 pm. Harger, Seattle Pacific, FX- They’ve had a rough time on floor so far based on scores…two in the 8 range and one 9.1. Yikes. Double pike to start is good. Hit middle pass and a double tuck to finish. Definitely a great set.

3:46 pm. Breen, Nebraska, BB- One-armed bhs to loso, solid. Split to sheep jump, 1.5 dismount is stuck.

48.375 for Lindenwood on bars with Horn and Sokolowski posting the highest scores, just as I expected…those routines were fabulous!

3:44 pm. Chavez, Lindenwood, UB- Giant full right on the bar, messy ish bail to a good toe shoot, double layout got a little piked but good landing.

3:43 pm. Horn, Lindenwood, UB- Jaeger to overshoot, giant full to double tuck, stuck cold. Another fab routine for Lindenwood!

3:41 pm. Sokolowski, Lindenwood, UB- Short ish first handstand but a HUGE Gienger. Clear hip to LOVELY pak. WOW!!! Giant full to double tuck with a hop back. Impressive.

3:40 pm. Okay, it keeps replaying Houchin’s beam over and over. Moving to bars and hoping for more success but they have Ryan Henry just going up even though she already has a score on the live stats soooo…I have no confidence in this mess.

3:36 pm. Houchin, Nebraska, BB- Great flight series. Front aerial with a stumble. Switch to split jump, amplitude on both is iffy and I don’t think she’s at 180. Full turn, and the stream’s going out. #STAB How many times will I hashtag #STAB during this meet? Oh, I just got logged out AGAIN. And logged back in to see this whole routine over again, and then it logs me out again. BLESS FLOPRO.

Brown had a 48.675 on floor, btw, so they jump ahead of Lindenwood.

3:35 pm. FloPro keeps signing me out every five minutes. #STAB So the live scores have been a hot mess but Nebraska leads 49.2, followed by Lindenwood, and Seattle Pacific. Not where where Brown falls because they only have four scores up.

3:28 pm. Morant, Brown, FX- I caught it from the Rudi to huge split jump. Which was also the end. Jumping back and forth from the different event streams is ANNOYING.

3:26 pm. Hayashida, Seattle Pacific, BB- If she hits they won’t count a fall. Full turn, solid bhs loso, wobble on switch half, beat jump to stag jump, side aerial with a step back, and a punch front full with a little step.

3:24 pm. Olson, Brown, FX- Nice front double full, just realized this meet is on podium, which is really cool for these girls. Hit middle pass, a front something into a punch front. Rudi to stag to finish. 9.8!

3:22 pm. San Roman, Seattle Pacific, BB- Full turn, front aerial to bhs is good, gainer full dismount with a solid landing.

3:21 pm. Laeng, Nebraska, UB- Giant half to Gienger to overshoot, giant full to double tuck.

Lindenwood has a 48.45 on vault.

3:19 pm. Crouse, Nebraska, UB- Weiler half! to HUGE layout Gienger. WOWSERS. Bail, very nice handstands, full-in with a tiny hop back. That was bonkers good.

3:17 pm. Epperson, Nebraska, UB- Nice straddle Jaeger, bail, clean stuck double layout. Great routine there.

Hit routine for Brown on floor in the background. I can’t find working live stats so idk who anyone is anymore!

3:16 pm. Lambert, Nebraska, UB- Jaeger ends up completely tucked, not sure if that was on purpose?? Into a bail. Full-twisting double tuck dismount is a little messy, step back.

3:13 pm. Breen, Nebraska, UB- Hit release and bail, clean double layout to finish.

Franklin, Lindenwood, VT- I think this was Franklin anyway. Handspring front pike, GREAT landing, but her legs separate a little bit right before.

3:11 pm. Davis, Lindenwood, VT- Handspring front tuck with a big bounce forward.

Houchin, Nebraska, UB- Tkachev, bail, and a giant full to double tuck with a couple of baby steps.

3:08 pm. Warmups now.

Lindenwood’s vault lineup is Davis, Henry, Franklin, Horn, Sokolowski, and Oswalt.

Nebraska’s bars lineup is Houchin, Breen, Lambert, Epperson, Crouse, and Laeng.

Seattle Pacific will start on beam and Brown on floor. No lineups for either of them.

3:03 pm. Ugh, because you can only watch one event at a time on FloGym and can’t split your stream, I’m gonna try to jump back and forth between Lindenwood and Nebraska, but I’ll get what I can from the other two!

2:56 pm. The Gym Quarters quad meet with Lindenwood, Nebraska, Brown, and Seattle Pacific is starting soon!

  1. Hi Lauren, did you find a working live scores link for the quad meet happening right now? The one on the Preview and Schedule page gives me an error page. Thank you 🙂

  2. Ok so I’m sure Nerbaska had an awesome meet with that score ( couldn’t watch cause Flo) But are we thinking tonight is going to be a 10/198 extragenza ? Especially with a team going 197 in the 1st session?

    Prediction= it’s gonna be crazy

  3. I love how ESPN is talking about Maddie and Mykayla being teammates and celebrating the alternates as much as the team members. The popular narrative for gymnastics is so “only competing at the Olympics matters!!” and I love seeing a popular outlet acknowledging that there are achievements beyond that.

  4. Okay so Utah wins. 197.875 to 197.5 I’m happy. I kinda wish Mykayla got a 10 because why not at a meet which already has some overscore? I mean…

        • Yeah…it’s funny because it actually started out like, really decent I thought? Utah vaults especially…I’d see a clean FTY with a great landing that wasn’t perfect and I’d be like “that’ll be 9.925” like rolling my eyes but then it would get like a 9.8 and I was like damn scoring is tight tonight! But then they got to beam and floor and it was super ridiculous, especially with Utah’s floor (every single gymnast got a season high) and UCLA’s beam (routines with major mistakes got 9.9+).

  5. Oh, UCLA. They’re like the Russia of college gym. So much potential, so beautiful, and you just can’t count on them to hit a whole meet, but how magical it is when they do.

    • To be fair, they put up like 50% different routines on floor and two of those gymnasts fell…but then they also had mistakes from some of their best like Madison and Peng on beam so *shrug* #UCLAProbs
