NORMAN, Okla. — Washington's gymnastics team posted its best regional score since 2000, a 195.925 in placing third at the NCAA Oklahoma Regional on Saturday.

Oklahoma won the regional with a score of 197.375 and advanced to nationals along with runner-up Stanford (196.800).

Huskies senior Lauren Rogers finished second in the all-around competition with a 39.375. She earned an individual spot at nationals by scoring the highest from a team not headed to the meet at UCLA.

Huskies junior Aliza Vaccher scored a 39.275 in all-around, which was good for fifth place. She will be an alternate for nationals.

Rogers tied for third (9.875) in the uneven bars for the best Huskies individual finish. Rogers tied for seventh (9.875) on the vault. Vaccher tied for eighth (9.825) on the balance beam.

The Huskies started off on floor and earned a solid score of 48.800. Their second event was vault.
