Oklahoma solidified it's lead in the National Rankings for the Week of February 26th.  The rankings this week finally switch to the Regional Qualifying Score, or RQS.

 The RQS is computed by taking a team's top three AWAY scores, then their next three highest scores, tossing out the highest, and averaging the remaining five.

OU leads the rankings, with UCLA rising to 2nd and LSU in 3rd.  Utah is 4th and Florida 5th.

OU leads the vault rankings as a team, but LSU now takes the top spot on UB and FX.  UCLA holds the top spot on BB. 

Individually, there have been many more shakeups, as some gymnasts don't have six scores to count towards an RQS.

OU's Maggie Nichols leads in the AA, with LSU's Sarah Finnegan 2nd and Stanford's Elizabeth Price in 3rd.  Nichols also leads on UB and BB.  Florida's Alex McMurtry is the top vaulter while LSU's Myia Hambrick holds the top spot on FX.

Here's the Top 25

1.  OU 197.855
