#7 Denver battled #1 Oklahoma in front of a record Denver gymnastics crowd of 6,100 spectators but fell 197.7 to 197.4 against the Sooners Sunday afternoon. The score was Denver’s fourth highest score in program history.

The highlight of the afternoon was provided by DU sophomore Lynnzee Brown in the floor exercise. As DU’s sixth competitor in the final rotation, Brown put on an explosive routine and received a standing ovation and perfect tens from the trio of judges.

To the best of our knowledge, Nina Mcgee was the last DU gymnast to record a perfect ten on the floor exercise.
