It marked the third time this year Dockendorf has recorded a perfect score. The previous two times happened on floor exercise. No other Husky gymnast has done it more than once during a season. It was also the second time a Husky scored a 10 at the Pac-10 meet. Lanna Apisukh did it on vault at the 2001 Padc-10s in Corvallis.
