What’s to come in this episode:

Sooners stole the show,13 alums competed and 1 killed it in vault in warm-ups, the cables at bars were faulty and so were the judges, landings on vault were hard to come by but not for Rucker, Bars and Beam All Americans for Region 5 Alums, do you focus recruiting on elites or level 10s and Lights Out needs to be OUT for ever.

KJC mentioned her smile was choreographed into her routine, NO WAY 

Helen Hu- Beautiful Piked Ray to pak (huge swing and amplitude on both skills) beam solid as always with her lines and flow solid front aerials 9.9375 to tie pretty much everyone for 4th place (8 tied)
