OU Takes Second at NCAA Gymnastics Championships
April 20, 2013

The Oklahoma women’s gymnastics team finished second in the nation at the NCAA Championships with a score of 197.375 at Pauley Pavilion on Saturday.

The Sooners finished just ahead of Alabama’s score of 197.350 and behind Florida’s winning score of 197.575.

The second-place finish ties for the highest in program history. OU also placed second in 2010.

The Sooners got big beam routines from sophomore Rebecca Clark, who set a career high with a 9.925, and junior Madison Mooring, also with a 9.925. Taylor Spears added a 9.9, Lauren Alexander scored 9.875 and Keeley Kmieciak and Erica Brewer each submitted a 9.85.

The Sooners’ score of 197.375 is the highest by an OU program at the NCAA Championships and gives OU its 13th meet with a score of 197 or above, tying an NCAA record for most such meets in a season with Florida in 2007.

Brewer, Clark and Mooring will close out the season for Oklahoma by competing in the Individual Finals on Sunday at 3 p.m. CT. Mooring will compete on vault, Brewer and Clark will compete on bars and Brewer will compete with Iowa State’s Michelle Shealy on beam. The competition will be shown live on
