ICYMI, Here Are Some of the Most Entertaining Floor Routines From the NCAA Gymnastics Championships

Fitness

The confetti has settled and the teams have headed home. At the NCAA Gymnastics Championships on April 19 and 20, Oklahoma came out on top as national champs followed by LSU and UCLA. In its first NCAA final showing in school history, Denver finished fourth. Highlights include Katelyn Ohashi’s farewell performance as a Bruin, Kyla Ross’s floor and vault cochampion wins, and LSU junior Maggie Nichols’s all-around victory for the second year in a row.

It was a weekend full of emotion. For instance, it marked the last time legendary UCLA head coach Valorie Kondos Field, known as “Miss Val,” led her team to an NCAA Championships (she’s retiring). The sport said goodbye to great seniors, too. Other than UCLA’s Katelyn, there’s 2012 Olympic alternate Sarah Finnegan, four-time national team member Lexie Priessman, and Mary Lou Retton’s daughter McKenna Kelley, all from LSU.

But, it was also a weekend full of what these gymnasts do best: showmanship, skill, and so much fun. Ahead, check out some of the coolest floor routines from the championships in no particular order (because they’re all awesome).
