NORMAN, Okla. - The No. 7 Stanford University women's gymnastics team was edged, 196. 275-196.175, by the No. 11 Oklahoma Sooners in Norman, Oklahoma. The Cardinal suffered their second consecutive loss and fall to 5-3 on the season, while the Sooners improve to 8-7 on the year.

The Cardinal, the third ranked bar team in the country, only managed a 48.700. Senior All-American Lindsay Wing posted the top score of the night, earning a 9.925.
Last week, at UCLA, the Cardinal were shaky on the balance beam, an event that Stanford has traditionally excelled at. The Cardinal were back to their normal selves, posting a team score of 49.275.
