Two perfect 10s lead LSU Gymnastics past Georgia
BATON ROUGE- LSU Gymnastics scored a season high score of 197.900 Friday night in the PMAC against No. 7 Georgia.
Senior Lexie Priessman made her return to the lineup after and injury and scored a perfect 10.0 score on bars. Later in the meet, Sarah Finnegan scored a perfect 10.0 on beam to help get LSU the 197.900-196.325 win.

Finnegan also finished with an All-Around score of 39.675 which was good enough for her 9th All-Around title this season.
LSU was also lights out on floor as Kennedi Edney scored a 9.925. Scores of 9.95 from Finnegan and a 9.925 from McKenna Kelley led them to the win.
