LOS ANGELES — On the strength of two nearly perfect routines from senior Sydney Sawa, the No. 6 UCLA gymnastics team defeated 14th-ranked Oregon State, 196.425-195.625, in Pauley Pavilion on Sunday.

Sawa recorded career-best marks on vault (9.95) and floor exercise (9.975), earning a 10.0 from one of the two judges on each event. She also came in as a last-minute sub and scored 9.85 on uneven bars to tie for second place.

Also earning a perfect mark from one judge was freshman Angi Cipra on floor exercise, where she finished with a final score of 9.95.

UCLA took the top four spots on the floor exercise and had four of the top five scores on the uneven bars, as well as three of the top four scores on the vault.

OSU had five of the top seven scores on the balance beam with Chelsea Tang scoring a 9.875 to place second.

OSU’s Taylor Keeker tied for second with two others on vault with a 9.90.

Brittany Harris tied for second on the bars with three others with a 9.850.

Nicole Turner and Kaytianna McMillan tied for fifth on the floor with 9.825s for the Beavers.

Tang was the only competitor on either team to compete in the all around with a 39.175.

The Beavers fall to 2-1 overall and 0-1 in the Pac-12 while UCLA is now 1-1 overall and 1-0 in the conference.
