The girls put together a number of great routines, as well as overcome their individual skill challenges throughout the competition.

Highlights from the competition were Hannah placing fifth on floor, Ella landing a back walk-over on beam for the first time at a major competition, while Quinn placed 16th overall.

On top of that, Abbey produced two amazing saves on beam and bars to keep her routines going.
