Recapping LSU gym's 2nd place finish at nationals
BATON ROUGE - The LSU Tigers weren't phased by their 5th place standing midway through the Super 6: instead, they did a fashion show.
The Tigers used the house music to take the stress off as they sashayed, shook off any nerves and finished with a 49.4625 and a program-best 49.5250 on the vault to finish with their best result in team history, taking 2nd place in Fort Worth.
"We really just came back and hit it out of the park," said senior gymnast Randii Wyrick. "We're really together, we've cared about one another, picked each other up when we were down and it's been so amazing to be a part of something so great."
