Diandra Milliner – front aerial to beat jump – switch split leap to straddle jump – solid – bhs to loso – awesome – full turn – front kickover – dismounts with a round off to double twist – one left foot step forward on landing. 9.850
Sarah DeMeo – front handspring to double stag leap – front aerial to beat jump – bhs to back pike – lands it bent at the waist – one leg lifted to hold on – switch split leap to split jump – dismounts with a double pike – one step back. Her major deduction will come with the bend at the waist on her flight series. 9.800 – too high.
Amanda Jetter – switch split side straddle – bhs to loso – solid – front punch – low in amplitude – no leap out of it – full turn – switch split to straddle 1/4 jump – 1.5 twist dismount – small hop forward on landing. 9.750
Aja Monet Sims – front aerial to split jump – very elegant – bhs to loso – right on – switch split leap to straddle jump – switch split 1/4 leap – full turn – dismounts with a round off to double tuck – one step forward, bent at the knee as well. Great routine until that point. 9.875
Kaitlyn Clark – switch split leap to split jump – bhs to loso – balance check on the landing, one foot lifted slightly – front kickover – front aerial to beat jump – may not get full connection credit – dismounts with a round off to 1.5 twist – nails the landing but off center relative to the beam. 9.875
Kim Jacob – switch split leap to straddle 1/1 – bhs to loso to loso – solid – big smile – barani – bent at the waist and has to grab back of her thighs to stay on, so this will be a major deduction – dismounts with a 1.5 twist – stuck. What a shame, she was heading to a 9.90 plus score. 9.825 – that score is way too high considering the balance check on the barani was significant.
Exhibition: Lauren Beers – side somi – bhs to loso – switch leap but has to stop and then proceeds with a straddle to sheep jump to beat jump – split scale – switch split leap to gainer back pike – nice routine overall.
