This weekend Fort Worth hosted the Metroplex Challenge, a competition featuring not only some of the best college teams in the country, but over 200 top Level 10 gymnasts. 

College Highlights

This year, Metroplex featured the University of Oklahoma, Texas Woman’s University, and Centenary College of Louisiana, who placed in that order for the team competition. There were tons of rewatch-worthy moments, but here’s our top three.

1. Anastasia Webb | Vault

Oklahoma senior Anastasia Webb kicked off the 2021 Metroplex Challenge with her second career perfect ten and first on vault. Webb had a great competition, taking first on vault, beam, and floor, and fifth on bars, and all four routines are worth re-watching.
