4:56 pm. Touch for the second half!

4:52 pm. Tiana Sumanasekera BB: Candle mount. Bhs bhs layout, strong landing. Front aerial to split jump to Korbut, really nice there. Switch to switch half, a little short and a bobble there. Split ring jump, shape isn’t quite there. Side aerial was strong, doesn’t really connect to the wolf jump, and has a wobble there. Sissone. Full turn. Double pike, great landing, just moves a foot slightly. 13.300

4:48 pm. Jade Carey FX: Full-twisting double layout, step back. Dobule double, some leg form. Front layout through to a strong double pike. Double tuck to finish. 13.100

Joscelyn Roberson BB: Strong standing full! Switch to switch half to back tuck, a little short on the leaps. Side aerial loso loso, little bobble. Had a couple of little things on everything else I saw, double pike dismount was pretty good, looked like a little step there. 13.200

Ashlee Sullivan UB: Missed a release sadly, but that’s all I saw. 9.950

4:46 pm. Kelise Woolford UB: Toe full, some crossed ankles, Maloney to Pak, nice. Good handstand before the van Leeuwen, some leg form throughout there, blind change to straddle Jaeger, height was WIIIIILD!!! But then had to pause on the bar, unfortunately. Hit a stalder after, and then a full-in dismount with a stumble back. 12.000

4:44 pm. Charlotte Booth FX: Front double full, good rotation and landing. Had to kind of run forward out of her second pass. Double tuck was really deep and back on her heels, ends up sitting it. 11.200

Dulcy Caylor BB: Strong bhs loso loso. Nice on the jump series to Korbut. Clean side aerial. Dismounts with a 2.5, step back. 12.400

Shilese Jones VT: Huge and gorgeous Yurchenko double full. Hop back. 14.400

4:42 pm. Katelyn Jong VT: Yurchenko double, some loose legs on the second twist, hop back. 13.800

Skye Blakely UB: Stalder half to piked Jaeger, maybe a little low on that release? Downie to Pak, good. Great handstand before the toe full, good handstand there as well, to van Leeuwen. Toe half and a double front half, some leg form in the air but a strong landing! 14.400

4:40 pm. Leanne Wong VT: Yurchenko double, slight leg form but an excellent landing! 14.050

Second vault is the Lopez, mostly clean, slight leg separation, bounce back.

Kayla DiCello UB: Toe full to Chow to clear hip to big Church, nice! Blind change to piked Jaeger. Great handstand before the Pak. Clean van Leeuwen. She’s killing it. Full-in, nearly stuck, just takes a baby step. Amazing job from her! 13.800

Myli Lew BB: Wasn’t watching the beginning, caught it from the bhs loso, and she falls. Ughhhh. Hit the dismount with a step back. 12.250

Switch to switch half to split ring jump, lovely connections. Side aerial loso loso, slight adjustment at the end of the series. Switch ring, a little slow to the split leap, but overall she is crushing it. Tucked gainer full off the end, this was freaking STUNNING.

4:30 pm. Simone Biles UB: Weiler half to Maloney to kind of a wild full pirouette into the piked Tkachev to Pak, van Leeuwen, toe full was fine today, to full-in, tiny hop! That first series looked like it was done on a wing and a prayer, just rushing a bit too much. But of course she got it under control! 14.050

Marissa Neal BB: Hit her acro series, then a switch leap to split jump half, a bit short on the latter. Good side aerial. Full L turn had a bit of a bobble. Step back on the double pike dismount. 12.850

4:13 pm. Myli Lew UB: Stalder full to Maloney to Pak to stalder to Chow to Gienger, SO nice, love that series so much! Toe half, noooo, hit her feet on the low bar coming down from handstand!
