Mar 8, 2014

2008 Olympian Samantha Peszek made a triumphant return to all around on Friday night against Michigan. Peszek competed her crowd pleasing floor routine for the first time this season after sitting out with a stress reaction in her heel. Peszek scored a 9.925 for this performance and won the meet's all around title with a 39.65. This marked her first all-around competition since the 2012 NCAA Championships as she missed the 2013 season with an achilles tear. Eighth-ranked UCLA racked up another strong road score, placing second in the tri-meet with a total of 197.475. The seventh-ranked Wolverines won the meet with a 197.825, and sixth-ranked Utah was third with 197.350.
