The Razorbacks final score was a program record at Barnhill Arena. 

Bentonville graduate Lauren Williams continued to dominate vault with a 9.925. Cami Weaver put together a 9.875.

The Hogs then put together a season high score of 49.350 on bars. Norah Flatley led the team with a 9.925. The team would mimic that effort on beam thanks to a 9.900's from Flatley and Cally Swaney. The 49.250 was also a season high.

The Razorbacks went into the night's final routine with a chance to pull off the upset. The Hogs would do exactly that with Leah Smith leading the way with a 9.950. Williams was second on the team with a 9.925.
