LOS ANGELES - The No. 3 California Women's Gymnastics team sent a message that reverberated throughout California and beyond Sunday afternoon, putting on a breathtaking performance in a dominant 198.400-197.775 victory over No. 9 UCLA at Pauley Pavilion.

While a raucous crowd cheered on the Bruins' every move, the Golden Bears simply put together the best performance in program history - their team score of 198.400 surpassed their previous best of 198.275 set last season. Meanwhile, sophomore eMjae Frazier also made history with the best individual all-around score ever at Cal with a 39.825.



The Bears left little doubt it would be a memorable afternoon immediately, tying for the program's second best-ever score on the uneven bars with a 49.650. Cal had five gymnasts register at 9.9 or better, including four 9.95s.

The Bears then put up their second-best floor exercise score ever as well with a 49.675, highlighted by Frazier's first career 10 in the event. Cal once again had five gymnasts go 9.9 or higher.

Mya Lauzon recorded a perfect 10 of her own on beam, while Frazier came close again with a 9.975. For the third time in the meet, Cal went No. 2 all-time in the event with a 49.725. Five gymnasts again went at least 9.9.



Sunday's performance also marked the first time in program history the Bears have had two gymnasts record a 10 during the same meet.

Lauzon's all-around score of 39.700 was close to her career-best of 39.775, which she and Frazier both hit earlier this season that was the previous program record.

Ella Cesario set a career-best with an all-around score of 39.475 and Maddie Williams' 39.600 was a season-high.



The Bears now have a monumental showdown with No. 4 Utah on Saturday at Haas Pavilion at 2 p.m. The meet will be aired on Pac-12 Insider.
