Come See OU Fight for Big XII Title
Don’t miss your chance to see the OU Women’s Gymnastics Team compete for the Big XII Championship Saturday, March 18th at 4:00 pm at the Dr. Pepper Arena in Frisco. OU will square off against Denver, Iowa State, and West Virginia for the Big XII title.
The Sooners are having one of their best seasons on record as they go for their third national championship under the direction of head coach K.J. Kindler. OU started off the season ranked number one and has been number one for the past seven consecutive weeks. Fresh off her elite career, World Champion team member, freshman Maggie Nichols is ranked number one on all four events and the all around for the NCAA. She has scored a 10.0 on vault, floor, and twice on the balance beam. Her all-around score of a 39.925 is the highest posted by anyone in the NCAA this season and the best by a freshman in NCAA history. This past weekend the Sooners continued their season of excellence as sophomore Nicole Lehrmann, and senior McKenzie Wofford both scored a 10.0 on bars. This marked the third time in the program’s history that a perfect score has been posted by two Sooners in the same event at the same meet.
ASI Arlington Level 4 gymnasts Tinley and Hailey had the opportunity to meet OU coach K.J. Kindler, as well as gymnasts Maggie Nichols, Chayse Capps, and Charity Jones this past weekend.
