Despite Kyla Ross' two perfect scores, UCLA gymnastics falls to Oklahoma for first loss


That difference cost UCLA its undefeated season as the Bruins earned their lowest team score since Jan. 27.


Four gymnasts scored 9.9 or higher on bars, two on vault, leaving UCLA trailing Oklahoma by .475 at the halfway point.


There were no falls by the Bruins in those two rotations, with every bars routine at least a 9.8, but only junior Kyla Ross scored 9.9 or higher.


The Bruins’ bright spot in the first two rotations, Ross started the meet with a perfect 10 on the uneven bars.


After the vault, junior Madison Kocian gathered the Bruins in a huddle, attempting to rally the team.


At a news conference after the meet, Kondos Field shared how she had hoped to go undefeated in her final season — the one achievement that has eluded her in her in 28 years as UCLA’s coach.
