7:24 PM

The University of California-Berkeley makes their home season debut at the Haas Pavilion this evening against the University of California-Los Angeles. Having to count a low score of 9.325 from Sonya Meraz on the Uneven Bars after falls from both her and Stella Savvidou, the UCLA Bruins find themselves in second place after the first rotation. UC-Berkeley's Charlie Owens performed an exhibition Vault scoring a 9.125 whilst UCLA's Rechelle Dennis' exhibition Bars routine scored a 9.800. UC-Berkeley's Vault score is a season high for the team. UCLA's Peng-Peng Lee returns to the Vault lineup with a fantastic 9.875!! At the halfway mark, UC-Berkeley maintain the lead over UCLA! UC-Berkeley's Toni-Ann Williams ties with Peng-Pee Lee for the honors on Vault with JaNay Honest of UCLA had the best Uneven Bars routine of her career to earn the title on the apparatus! Owen's also exhibited on the Uneven Bars earning a 9.775. A change to the Floor Exercise lineup sees Hallie Mossett and Madison Preston being replaced by fellow Bruins Mikaela Gerber and Sonya Meraz. The UC-Berkeley team still maintains the lead headed into the final rotation. Sylvie Seilnacht performed a 9.575 scoring exhibition on the Beam for the Bears. UCLA's Gerber had a fantastic routine on the Balance Beam to open the final rotation tying her career high whilst fellow UCLA gymnast Angi Cipra competed her first Beam routine since 2014 and despite falling on her leap series had a solid routine. UCLA will have to count a fall on the Beam after Peng-Peng falls on her acro series. Toni-Ann Williams earns the top mark on the Floor with Danusia Francis of UCLA taking the top mark of the meet on the Balance Beam. Berkeley takes the win over the Bruins with a season high combined total - the first time triumphing over the Bruins since 1985. Nicki Shapiro of UCLA exhibited on the Beam for a 9.675.
