NCAA Top Routines: Peng Peng Lee, Nikole Addison, & More

After a huge week of gymnastics that saw Peng-Peng Lee score a perfect 10 and OU and LSU reach ridiculously high scores, the NCAA has another show-stopping weekend on hand. Here are the top routines we're following this week in college gymnastics.

1. Arkansas | Sarah Shaffer | Floor

Friday, Feb. 2 at 8:30 PM ET vs Alabama  



Schaffer scored a career-best 9.900 in week four action against Georgia to clinch the meet for the Razorbacks. Her first two passes — a high double pike and a clean double tuck — both had solid landings. Her all-around total of 39.350 was also a career-high for the freshman. 

Schaffer has competed in the all-around in all four meets so far for No. 8 Arkansas. Floor has been a weakness for Arkansas this season, but Schaffer has scored a 9.800 or better three of four meets. The Razorbacks will face another big test this week when they take on Alabama.

2. Kentucky | Ella Warren | Floor

Friday, Feb. 2 at 8:30 PM ET vs LSU



Warren has been a stellar addition to a young Kentucky team. Like teammate Mollie Korth, Warren graduated early to come to Lexington. She has been fun to watch, especially on floor through the early part of the season. She has scored a 9.800 or better in all three floor routines this morning. The Wildcats are current ranked fifth in the country on floor exercise. They'll have a tall order taking on the second-ranked LSU Tigers on the road this week.

3. Stanford | Rachael Flam | Vault

Friday, Feb. 2 at 10 PM ET vs San Jose State, Seattle Pacific, and UC Davis



Flam was a J.O. star on vault, but that hadn’t translated to the college level through the first several meets. But Flam hit her stride on vault last week against Oregon State. She scored a season best 9.850 in week four action. Flam does an Omelianchik, which starts out at a 10.0. 

Vault has not been one the team’s strengths this season, but the Cardinal posted its second-highest mark of the season with a 49.050 against the Beavers. Look for Flam and Stanford to continue to improve in this weekend’s non-conference quad meet.

4. Denver | Nikole Addison | Floor

Saturday, Feb. 3 at 8 PM ET vs Ball State, Bowling Green, and BYU 



Addison posted a 9.925 to win a share of the floor exercise title in Denver’s last meet against Utah State to tie her season high. Addison has a gorgeous, floating double layout to open her routine. She closes with a pretty double pike and had excellent landings on all three of her passes. The Pioneers are ranked eighth on floor exercise and posted their top floor score of the season with a 49.475.

5. UCLA | Peng Peng Lee | Beam

Sunday, Feb. 4 at 4 PM ET vs Oklahoma



Lee scored her first perfect 10 of the season at the Metroplex meet last weekend, when UCLA came out on top in Fort Worth. The sixth-year senior has a gorgeous beam routine with a unique composition. Her Homma flares mount always draws cheers from the crowd, regardless of where UCLA competes, and a double turn that she makes look far too easy. 

Lee’s score at the end of the lineup tends to draw a big number. She has scored a 9.900 or better three of four beam routines this season. This weekend UCLA goes head-to-head with defending champion Oklahoma. The Bruins are ranked second on balance beam — right behind the Sooners.
