  • The Red Rocks had a strong all-around performance which has highlighted by an incredible beam rotation.
  • Maile O’Keefe scored a perfect 10.000 on beam! If you haven’t been following the Red Rocks, when O’Keefe throws up the “twos” at the 37 second mark, she is doing so to honor Ty Jordan and Aaron Lowe. The whole gymnastics team has been doing this all season.
