UCLA Advances To NCAA Gymnastics Super Six
CLEVELAND, Ohio - Defending NCAA Gymnastics champion UCLA moved on to the Super Six Team Finals after placing third in the first semifinal on Friday afternoon at the Wolstein Center. The Bruins built up a big lead after three events, leaving plenty of room for error on their final event. When the errors did come, it hardly mattered, as UCLA had scored enough to safely secure third place with a final team score of 196.5, over a point ahead of fourth-place squads Arkansas and Georgia (195.45). Oklahoma won the semifinal with a score of 196.775. Michigan was second with a 196.7. The Top 3 teams in each semifinal qualify for Saturday's team finals.
UCLA went lights-out on its first three events, scoring 49.325 on floor, 49.45 on vault and 49.35 on bars, but had to count a fall on beam in the final rotation for a score of 48.375.
