Anastasia Webb of Oklahoma, whose lowest score of the competition was a 9.900, tied for first place all-around with Maddie Karr from Denver. It was a night of ties, as the second-place team was a tie between Denver and Alabama, both scoring a 196.575.

Alabama started in second place after its first rotation on bars, featuring five incredible routines in a row, the lowest counted score being a 9.850.
