With the 2017 NCAA season in the books, we're taking a look back at the outstanding routines that earned perfect 10s. There was a lot of new elite and Olympic talent in the NCAA this year, and that translated into some great routines that were rewarded with 10.0s.
Take a look below at the 10.0s earned this season on beam and floor, and check out the perfect 10s on vault and bars here.
BeamThese six talented gymnasts showed confidence, incredible difficulty, and nailed landings to earn perfection on beam this season. There were even a few gymnasts who notched perfect scores more than one time in 2017 thanks to their outstanding consistency.
Katelyn Ohashi (UCLA)Ohashi had an outstanding season on beam this year for the Bruins, scoring two perfect 10s. She has incredible difficulty throughout her routine, and she was rewarded when she hit. Ohashi's beam routine features a triple flight series along with a combination dismount (BHS, layout, back full).
Chayse Capps (Oklahoma)Capps has been an incredible beam worker during her whole career at Oklahoma, and that was no different in her senior year. She shined bright again this season, scoring a perfect 10 on beam for the second time. Capps brings beautiful lines and choreography within her beam routine, and it is a joy to watch.

Maggie Nichols (Oklahoma)Nichols proved this season that she is one of the best beam workers in the country, leading the rankings and scoring a perfect 10 on beam three times. Nichols showed consistency along without outstanding difficulty throughout her routine. She featured a strong punch front and double-back dismount that was near perfect every time. As just a freshman, Nichols has already given the Sooners a huge boost to their already dominant beam lineup.
Kyla Ross (UCLA)Ross has always been a clean and consistent beam worker, and that continued in her first season in the NCAA. She earned two perfect 10s on beam this year with her beautiful beam routine.

Peng Peng LeeAnd finally, Lee closed out the Super Six final in the most perfect way possible. At the time, it was potentially her last competitive routine as a Bruin, but she has been granted a sixth year of eligibility and we will see her back on the competition floor next year!
FloorThis season, we saw five gymnasts who captured our attention by earning 10.0s. They are all incredibly dynamic athletes who bring big tumbling along with outstanding performance values.
MyKayla Skinner (Utah)Skinner is known for her difficult tumbling throughout her routine, and she made great improvements on her execution. She earned a perfect 10 on floor two times in just her freshman season with her powerful routine. Outstanding week in and week out, Skinner finished the season tied at No. 1 in the national rankings.
Maggie Nichols (Oklahoma)Nichols showed amazing floor routines throughout the year and reached perfection as well. Nichols makes her floor routine look effortless with perfect landings on every tumbling pass along with beautiful lines and choreography throughout.
