Salt Lake City - Sophomore Chelsea Bakken won a share of the vault title and tied for second on floor to lead the Husky gymnastics team, but No. 1 Utah (10-2) won the meet 197-850-195.175 to remain perfect at home. The Huskies (10-7) team total was their second-highest of the season, while Utah recorded its eighth highest score all-time.

The Huskies found themselves in a hole early as they began the evening on bars, scoring a 48.675, while Utah opened with a 49.525 on vault. Molly Seaman and Carly Dockendorf each scored a 9.850 to tie for fourth. For Seaman, it was the first time this year she has competed on bars.

The two squads switched apparatuses and the Huskies notched a season-high 49.250 on vault. Bakken scored a career-high 9.925 to earn a share of first-place with Utah's Nicolle Ford and Rachel Tidd. Senior Tacia LaBatte recorded a season-high 9.900 to tie for fourth, while Carly Dockendorf recorded a career-high 9.850 to tie freshman Natalie Gillan for eighth.

Washington's third event was floor, where Bakken and Dockendorf tied for third overall with 9.875. Natalie Gillan recorded a 9.825 to take eighth, while Raimey Iselin set a career-high with a 9.775 to take ninth.

The Huskies have little time to rest as they will host Boise State on Monday, March 14 at 7:00 p.m. in Bank of America Arena.
