Nothing Like a Perfect 10.......
Unless you're Courtney Kupets, and then you get TWO perfect 10's in one night. The girl is just awesome. A perfect 10 on uneven bars, and then a 10 on balance beam. Seems to me that balance beam would be the hardest place to get a 10. She's back this year after missing most of last season with a ruptured Achilles tendon, and it's like she never was gone. She picked right back up where she left off. Wow.
Grace Taylor came close to having her own 10 on beam, but it was a 9.975. A 10 from one judge, but 9.95 from the other.
And on top of that, it was a win, and an SEC win over a team who loves to hate us. And the feeling is mutual. Our coaches hate each other, and it's always a scrappy meet.
