Feb 8, 2022
Utah's Maile O'Keefe was named the Pac-12 Gymnastics Specialist of the Week, presented by Pacific Premier Bank, for Feb. 8. O'Keefe posted the meet-winning beam routine over rival UCLA to lead Utah to its 16th straight regular-season conference win. Following a 10.0 from UCLA with the crowd roaring, O'Keefe needed a 9.975 or better to clinch the win, and scored exactly that to win the road meet and earn her second-straight beam title. O'Keefe's 9.975 is her fourth score on beam of 9.90 or better with three of those coming in at 9.95-plus. She is ranked fourth in the nation on beam and first in the Pac-12. O'Keefe also posted a 9.925 on the floor while scoring 9.875 on bars to add to Utah's season-high 49.550 on bars, which is the third best bars score in the country.
