Coach Valorie Kondos Field said she believes her team is prepared.
“They’re ready,” Kondos Field said. “I told the coaching staff that I wish nationals was last weekend because they’re ready.”
Madison Kocian does not like to wait.
“I’m typically an impatient person,” the sophomore said.
Kocian had shoulder surgery in August. The doctors told her to take it easy with her recovery.
All season, coach Valorie Kondos Field has been looking for one thing from her team – four good events in a single meet.
During the last practice before traveling to Columbus, Ohio, for the NCAA regionals, Kondos Field said the 198.250 at the final home meet of the season against San Jose State – UCLA’s best team score in 14 years – failed to hit that expectation.
Redshirt senior Peng-Peng Lee stole the show in Palo Alto, nabbing two perfect scores.
The first came at the end of the opening event – the uneven bars – which began with two low scores due to a fall and a major deduction.
During UCLA gymnastics’ season-opening meet against Ohio State, sophomore Gracie Kramer had the opportunity to prove her competition struggles were behind her.
She was in the vault and floor exercise lineups for the first time since February 2017 – when she registered a fall on both events.
Despite UCLA suffering its first loss of the season against Oklahoma last week, there was a positive atmosphere in Pauley Pavilion.
The loss, however, has not been brushed aside by the team.
Under normal circumstances, UCLA’s gymnastics meet against Oklahoma would have been billed as a showdown between two top-tier programs with national championship ambitions. The individual scores and the final results would have taken center stage.
