After scoring a whopping three “Perfect 10s” over the weekend at Stanford, the UCLA gymnastics team will take on San Jose State in their last regular season meet before heading to the Pac 12 Championships in Arizona on March 24.

Christine Peng Peng Lee scored a 10 on bars and beam, and Kyla Ross brought home her first 10 of the season on bars as well. Stanford senior Elizabeth Price won the all-around with a 39.825. Ross was second with 39.625. Price also won vault with a 9.975 and floor with a 10.0.

The San Jose State Spartans are also coming off a quick turnaround, as they just competed over the weekend in a quad meet in Arizona. They scored 195.025, placing them second behind host Arizona. Taylor Chan won the floor with her second consecutive 9.900 this season. She scored a career-best 39.075 in the all-around to finish third and a 9.825 on vault to tie for fourth place. Teammate Ellie Pascoe-Long tied for first on the vault with a 9.850. In the final rotation, the beam team scored a 48.875, the second-highest beam score this season.

Tonight is Senior Night for the gymnastics team. UCLA’s senior gymnasts Rechelle Dennis, Napualani Hall, JaNay Honest, Christine Peng-Peng Lee and Sonya Meraz and managers Karli Dugas and Melissa Metcalf will be honored in postmeet ceremonies.


Go Bruins!
