Sooners Feeling Good in Season Opening Win

Fayetteville, Ark.- Maggie Nichols scored the first perfect 10 of the 2019 season and the No. 2 Oklahoma women’s gymnastics team opened the year with a statement victory, downing No. 12 Arkansas 198.050-195.575.

Nichols now has five perfect 10s on vault and 16 in her career, earning the Sooners’ 40th perfect score in program history. Nichols won the event title on vault, beam (9.975) and the all-around (39.750) while senior Nicole Lehrmann took the top spot on bars with a 9.95 and freshman Olivia Trautman took home a share of floor with a 9.95. Brenna Dowell made her beam and all-around debut, posting a 39.550 in the all-around for second place.

The Sooners are the first team since at least 1997 to post a score of 198 or better in an opening meet. It tops the program record of 197.750 set in 2017 when the Sooners opened at home against Alabama. The 198.050 also marked the 19th time in the last four seasons that OU has posted a score of 198 or better.
