Iowa State gymnast Meaghan Sievers scored a 9.775 in her vault routine at the NCAA Women’s Gymnastics National Championships.

Sievers, who rotated with California during the vault, recorded the top score at the regional competition last weekend in Minneapolis. Her score, a 9.925, was the best score of her season and tied her career-high. 

This was the second time Sievers competed at the National Championships as an individual on vault. She also scored a 9.775 when she competed at Nationals in 2016 as a freshman.

Sievers has been a consistent presence in Iowa State’s lineup throughout her three years as a Cyclone. You can read more about her journey to the National Championships here
