Feb 3, 2023, 8:41 PM | Updated: Feb 4, 2023, 3:41 pm

SALT LAKE CITY – The No. 4 Red Rocks flew right into the “danger zone” and “took our breath away” on Top Gun Night at the Huntsman Center against No. 5 UCLA.

On a night dedicated to honoring the history of their infamous intro and by extension, legendary head coach Greg Marsden’s lasting legacy on the program, the Red Rocks dropped their first 198 of the season beating the Bruins, 198.200 – 197.450.

The night was highlighted by top performances from Jillian Hoffman on vault (9.975), Maile O’Keefe, Cristal Isa, and Grace McCallum on bars (9.950), O’Keefe on beam (10.0) and McCallum on floor (9.925).
