Suni Lee made history Friday night, performing the first-ever Nabieva in collegiate gymnastics.

The Olympic all-around gold medalist debuted the difficult release skill on uneven bars for a score of 9.875.

Lee went on to score a perfect 10 on the balance beam, her second top score of the season and first in front of Auburn fans.

The freshman’s dominant performance led Auburn to a team score of 197.925, defeating Kentucky, who finished the night with a 197.150 score.

Lee is now only the second Auburn gymnast to score two perfect 10s in a single season, joining Becky Erwin, who managed the feat in 1993.
