For just the fourth time in the history of the Gophers' women's gymnastics program, Lexy Ramler scored a perfect 10 on the balance beam in Minnesota's 196.300-195.225 victory over Illinois on Saturday.
She joins Hanna Nordquist and teammate Ivy Lu as the only women to complete the feat on the balance beam.
What's more impressive is that it's the second 10 in as many weeks for the junior from St. Michael. Ramler scored her first perfect-10 score on the balance beam in the Rutgers Quad meet on Jan. 18. It was the first 10 to be scored at Maturi Pavilion in any event.
"It was so great to be back at the Pav, we had a tremendous crowd there tonight," head coach Jenny Hansen said. "... Beam again was just fabulous. Whenever anybody scores a 10, it's a fantastic night. The whole beam team did a fantastic job."
Ramler is currently ranked as the No. 1 balance beam gymnast in the country. Minnesota as a team is also ranked No. 1 in the event.
Ramler also owns the Gophers' highest all-around score in program history with a 39.725 on Feb. 15, 2019. Ramler, a 2019 first-team All-American, finished runner-up in the all-around and uneven bars at the 2019 NCAA Championships. She is in pursuit of becoming just the second Gopher women's gymnast to win a national championship. Marie Roethlisberger won the uneven bar title at the 1990 NCAA National Championships.
