7:36 pm. Jordan Chiles UB: Blind change to piked Jaeger, great handstand before the toe full, almost in total vertical, to Tkachev, piked Tkachev to a clean Pak, Maloney to Gienger was great, legs glued, does literally like one giant into the full-in. Excellent routine. 14.600 (5.9, 8.700)

7:21 pm. Simone Biles VT: Cheng was great, small bounce back. 15.550 (6.0, 9.550)

Switch ring to another jump. 2.5 to front layout, a little arched in the layout. But got the landing. Hit the last pass at first…then dropped her hands down.

7:18 pm. Shilese Jones UB: Stalder full to Maloney to Tkachev, HUGE Church to Pak, van Leeuwen, toe half to front giant to double front, high and stuck. Excellent routine.

Jordan then nearly sticks the tsuk full, tiniest hop back, excellent form. 14.650 average.
Addison Fatta UB: Huge piked Jaeger, nice Pak, Maloney to Gienger is a little close, hit the rest!
Emma Malabuyo FX: Double layout went low and long but she still got it around. Not a bad landing either. Hit the second pass, then a switch ring to tour jeté full, one of the best leap passes here. Double tuck with a little bounce. Front tuck through to something in her last pass, a double full maybe, I didn’t see, but the landing was a little low.
Ava Siegfeldt BB: I caught it from the dismount unfortunately, double full with a step to the side, but think she hit everything.
7:15 pm. Touch warm-up wrapping up for the second half!
7:10 pm. Going back to put in some scores for the most recent routines!

7:05 pm. Skye Blakely BB: Nails the standing full! Switch to switch half to back tuck with a wobble. Step back on the side aerial, front aerial to split jump to straddle jump, I think I may have missed her front front flight series but assume she stayed on. Super high double tuck dismount, great landing. 14.250 (5.9, 8.350)
Emily Lee FX: Double double, 2.5 to front full was short, step forward OOB. Good double tuck. 13.350 (5.4, 8.250, -0.3)
Ciena Alipio UB: I missed this but believe she hit. 13.350 (5.1, 8.250)
7:02 pm. Kayla DiCello FX: Great double double to start! Maybe a little forward on the second pass. Third pass was like a 1.5+ front full I think, good landing, and a solid double back at the end. 14.050 (5.7, 8.350)

6:58 pm. MyKayla Skinner VT: Another really solid Cheng for her! 15.000 (6.0, 9.000)!!!! Finally a 15. Amanar is next, and it’s an INCREDIBLE one. Huge, excellent position on the landing, small hop back. She averages a 15.050!
