At Level 2, Abby Cohen and Alexa Maslia shared the title on the beam. Abby also finished second on the bars and in the floor exercise and third in the all-around standings.

Also at Level 2, Sophia Pristach was second on the vault, and Genevieve Geist placed third on beam. At Level 3, Bri Richardson finished third on the beam and all around, while Caroline Hoag and Lauren Nelson tied for third on the beam, and Maddie Yudin was second in the floor exercise.
