In UCLA's 197.525-196.475 win over second-ranked Oklahoma on Mar. 11, Peszek won the all-around (39.575), balance beam (9.925) and floor exercise (9.95) with career-high numbers. The all-around and beam wins were her team-best fifth of the season. Peszek is averaging a team-high 39.467 in the all-around and 9.879 on floor. This is her second Pac-12 Gymnast of the Week honor this season.

Frattone earned the first perfect 10 of her career, sticking a Yurchenko half on, front pike off vault to pick up her fourth vault victory of the season. Her score led UCLA to a team total of 49.5 on vault, marking the fourth time this year the Bruins have totaled 49.5 or higher on the event. Frattone, who had scored 9.95 on vault on seven previous occasions, becomes the 22nd member of UCLA's 10.0 club and the 13th on vault. This is her second Special Performance of the Week honor this season and fourth in her career.

UCLA's next competition will be at the Pac-12 Championships in Utah on Mar. 24.
