Lauren Bridges Earns First Perfect Ten On Uneven Bars In Women’s Gymnastics Program History

Penn State gymnast Lauren Bridgens scored a perfect 10 on uneven bars in the BYU Quad Meet Friday, helping Penn State to a win over BYU, Texas Woman’s University, and Utah State.

The Darnestown, MD, native is a huge asset to the women’s gymnastics team. Bridgens is the first gymnast in program history to score a 10 on uneven bars and was the momentum Penn State needed to squeeze out a victory over BYU, winning by less than two-tenths of a point. This is Bridgens’ sixth title on uneven bars this season. Her record-setting score led her to claim the all-around title — her third of the season — in Friday’s meet. Her award winning routine was shared by Penn State women’s gymnastics Sunday:

“Tonight was a really fun night for the entire team,” Bridgens said. “It was an unbelievable feeling to experience getting a 10 with this team and I could not be more proud of the job we did tonight! Coming off a great meet for us, we still know we still have more in us moving forward into Big Fives.”

Bridgens was named Big Ten Freshman of the Week and is one of only four athletes to score a 10 on the uneven bars nationally this year.

The women’s team will compete next in the Big Five meet on March 17 against Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, and Rutgers.
