Three gymnasts β€” senior Evy Schoepfer, junior Allie Stern and freshman Audrey Lynn β€” all scored 9.875 on vault. On bars, freshman Katherine LeVasseur led OU with a 9.925, good for the first score of the day of more than 9.9 from any gymnast.

The Sooners’ scoring improved on beam, as seniors Anastasia Webb and Carly Woodard put up marks of 9.95 and 9.9, respectively, good for a 49.400 as a team. OU finished its dominance on floor behind another stellar performance from Webb, who had a 9.925, and a 9.9 from junior Emma LaPinta.

Webb took home the all-around title with a 39.600, and was the only Sooner to compete in the all-around.
