Chae Campbell is used to achieving high marks on vault and floor.
She’s received seven perfect scores for her Yurchenko full and two perfect 10s for her floor routine.
Nya Reed hadn’t trained gymnastics for an entire year.
At her first conditioning set at UCLA six months ago, she nearly passed out.
But today, the graduate student shares a top-10 national ranking on floor.
The Bruins are one of only seven teams to boast a national gymnastics championship.
They share a record – with Stanford – for the highest team score ever recorded in a collegiate gymnastics meet.
The Bruins posted two event lows and failed to eclipse the 197 mark for the second time in 2024 during their last away meet.

The Bruins did two things during the second half of Saturday’s meet.
The first: they posted their worst score on any beam rotation since March 2021.
LAS VEGAS – The Bruins led at the halfway point.
Competing in Olympic order, only beam remained before finishing with a floor party.
But at the Mean Girls Super 16 meet, a not-so-fetch beam rotation sunk the Bruins’ penultimate event, leaving them in last place, a full point behind the Crimson Tide.
