Competing at home in front of a sold-out Auburn crowd, Olympic champion Suni Lee won all the things. Well, almost. She had the top scores on vault, bars and floor on her way to the all-around title in Friday night’s dual meet against Arkansas.

On floor, she debuted a mesmerizing new routine choreographed by her teammate Gabby McLaughlin. She nailed her double layout mount and combination back one-and-a-half to front full second pass, as the Auburn crowd chanted for a perfect 10:

They were none too happy when a score of 9.975 was flashed.

« We [choreographed] this routine in two hours, literally two days ago, » Lee said with a laugh after the meet. « I absolutely love it. »

Earlier in the night, Lee won vault, with a 9.95, and bars, with a 9.975 — just missing perfect scores on each.

Auburn topped Arkansas 197.500-196.675, the highest score for the Tigers so far this season.

When asked what she thought the team could achieve this year, Lee replied, « the unthinkable. »
