    TONIGHT'S MEET
    The Gators took the lead after opening the meet with a season-high 49.475 on vault. That total included three collegiate-best marks – Trinity Thomas (9.95), Megan Skaggs and Sierra Alexander (each 9.875). Senior Alicia Boren also equaled her season-best of 9.925.

    Florida earned the same event total on its next event, uneven bars. Junior Amelia Hundley shared the meet title at 9.925 with Penn State's Lauren Bridgens. Three other Gators scored a 9.9 on bars – Boren, Savannah Schoenherr and Thomas.

    The Gators' top event score, 49.55, came on balance beam. That total included four Florida marks of 9.9 or better. Boren, Skaggs and Thomas shared the beam win at 9.925 and sophomore Alyssa Baumann anchored the lineup with a 9.9.

    Night to remember for Florida gymnastics
    By Gvl Sun gatorsports
    Leading the way for the Gators was freshman sensation Trinity Thomas, who scored a personal-best 9.95 in winning the vault.
    She also shared the titles on the balance beam with teammates Boren and Megan Skaggs, all with 9.925s, and on the floor exercise with Boren, with both earning a near-perfect 9.975.

    Thomas and Boren were neck-and-neck all evening in the all-around competition, with Thomas finishing with a 39.750 and Boren with a 39.725, just .025 behind.
    “I think starting on vault strong for the first time gave me the confidence to get through the rest of the meet,” Thomas said. “I felt like I did pretty well.”
