From MyKayla Skinner To Kaitlyn Schou, 5 Stellar Week Three Routines

The third week of the NCAA season kicks off on Friday with a heavy schedule as Denver and Boise State clash in a quad meet. Meanwhile, SEC and Pac-12 action continues with a young Kentucky squad taking on an experienced Florida team, and Oregon State travels to Utah. On Saturday the action continues as Arizona State meets Stanford in a battle of two programs in the midst of rebuilding after a disappointing 2017 season.

Here are five routines you won't want to miss.

1. Kaitlyn Schou | Denver | Balance Beam

Friday, Jan. 19 vs. Seattle Pacific, Illinois-Chicago and Boise State



Schou scored a 9.950 for this beautiful and confident routine in Denver’s second meet of the season. Her 9.912 average is the second-highest in the country. The junior’s routine is highlighted by a wonderfully connected front aerial-back handspring-layout step out series and a solid beat jump-sheep jump combination. The Pioneers are tied for second in the country on beam behind Florida with a 49.225 average.

2. Shani Remme | Boise State | Balance Beam

Friday, Jan. 19 vs. Seattle Pacific, Illinois-Chicago and Denver



Remme was a stalwart on beam for the Broncos last season and had nine of 12 routines score a 9.850 or better. The junior opened her season with a 9.875 against Southern Utah. She has a solid routine and has a great switch leap-switch half leap series that she does incredibly well. Look for Remme to continue to bring in the solid scores for Boise State this season.

3. Mollie Korth | Kentucky | Vault

Friday, Jan. 19 vs. Florida at 7 PM ET on SEC Network



Korth earned a 9.975 for this vault initially before the score was changed to a 9.950. The sophomore has beautiful form in the air and a stuck landing. Korth is a key piece of Kentucky’s vault lineup with her vault starting out of a 10.0 and will continue to be one to watch on the event this season.

4. MyKayla Skinner | Utah | Vault

Friday, Jan. 19 vs. Oregon State at 9 PM ET on Pac-12 Network

MyKayla Skinner - Vault, Utah - 2018 Elevate the Stage - Reno (NCAA)


Skinner has shown improvement on her form in the air since starting at Utah last year. The sophomore does one of the most difficult vaults in the NCAA — a Yurchenko double twist — and does it quite well. She did not score below a 9.875 on vault as a freshman. She was not consistent with sticking her landings but absolutely drilled her landing at the Elevate the Stage meet in Reno in week two action for a 9.950.

5. Cairo Leonard-Baker | Arizona State | Floor Exercise

Saturday, Jan. 20 vs. Stanford at 5 PM ET on Pac-12 Network



Leonard-Baker won the all-around and event titles on both uneven bars and floor exercise in the Sun Devils’ win at West Virginia in week two. The freshman picked up a 9.900 for this floor routine, which helped Arizona State pick up a season-best 49.125 on floor. She opens with a sky-high double tuck and had plenty of power for a double pike on her final pass.
