BATON ROUGE - Looking to make a statement after a disappointing SEC championship finish, the LSU gymnastics team posted its best score in program history as the Tigers won the NCAA regional championship on Saturday. 

LSU scored a 198.325 - more than a full point ahead of second place Stanford (197.275)  - and the Tigers rebounded from a 3rd place SEC championship finish in convincing fashion. 

Rheagan Courville took the all-around title with a 39.725, and she also captured the beam title with a career-high 9.975 and tied for the vault title with a 9.95.

Lloimincia Hall scored a perfect 10 on the floor - her third of the season - and the Tigers put together their most complete performance in program history. 

Now the Tigers must return to the scene of their biggest disappointment - Birmingham, the site of the SEC championship - for the NCAA championships starting on April 18.
