The final level in the compulsory division is level 5 and Aspen wanted to end the night on a high note. Level 5 competitors Robin Muse and Caitlyn Johnson were off to a rough start on vault but were able to bring it back on the other three events. Johnson took home fourth place all-around with a phenomenal finish.

The standout of the weekend was Muse, who took home first place all-around in her age division. Gymnastics is both an individual sport as well as team. You want to do well as an individual so that you can help your peers with the team award. The team award is made up of the top three scores from your team on each event.
