UCLA won its seventh NCAA Gymnastics Championship on Saturday with a dramatic come-from-behind finish. After trailing throughout the entire competition, the Bruins stormed back in the final two rotations and won the title after scoring an NCAA Championship record 49.750 on the balance beam. Needing a 9.975 on beam on their final routine, sixth-year senior Christine Peng-Peng Lee came through with a clutch performance for the ages, scoring a perfect 10, her second of the night.
