En route to winning the all-around title, LaFex set a new school record score. She tallied an overall score of 37.975 (vault-9.400, bars-9.700, beam-9.375, floor-9.500). Her score on bars also netted her the title on that apparatus.

She placed 10th on the balance beam, as well.

Courtney Benson (Fy., Winona, Minn.) finished second on the vault with a score of 9.600 and third in floor exercise with a score of 9.675.
