Sooners “Bounce Back” With NCAA’s Top Score; Michigan Splits at Home

Undefeated Oklahoma did something that caught college gymnastics fans off guard. Coming off of a high-scoring, barnburner of a meet last weekend against Stanford, the last thing anybody thought was the Sooners coming back the following weekend to post their highest score. Coach Mark Williams gave several of his stars some rest this weekend, but it seems like no matter whom he inserts into the lineup, they [...more]

Oklahoma, Minnesota & Iowa Vault to New Heights; Ohio State Nips Penn State at the Buzzer

Oklahoma (426.60) generated just a few more fireworks than Minnesota (417.20) and Iowa (414.65) to win a very exciting meet. The Gophers and Hawkeyes posted several individual and team season highs, including their best team all-around scores. Bean counters lost count of all the season highs for all three after [...more]
