Oregon State at UCLA Live Blog

Okay, last installment of this live blogging marathon for this evening.  The final meet is more PAC-12 fun with Oregon State at UCLA.

Last weekend, Sophina DeJesus had her floor routine go viral.  Will Sophina's spunk go viral two weeks in a row? Refresh the page every few minutes to find out!

Besides Sophina, watch Danusia Francis on beam. Her signature skill is a transverse aerial to full dismount.  Angi Cipra has a floor routine with an Iphone ring in it, expect Samantha Peszek to crack a "you forgot to turn off your phone" joke.

For Oregon State - Risa Perez works it on floor with her dance and a smile that has more light than a mega giant supernova. Maddie Gardiner is the star all-arounder, expect her signature wolf turn to split mount on beam that is so beautiful, it makes angels cry.

First rotation coming up. UCLA, the home team will be on the vault, Oregon State will be on bars.

UCLA has had some shit-ty luck with injuries between Hallie Mossett and Katelyn Ohashi. I think Miss Val should try to get some adamantium from Wolverine's skeleton and inject all her gymnasts with it.
