Ramler managed it during a quad meet with Rutgers University, Bowling Green State University and Ursinus College.

It was Ramler's first perfect 10 score and it contributed to the Gophers' highest team beam score in history at 49.7.

"Beam was absolutely outstanding, we were on fire tonight," Head Coach Jenny Hansen said in a statement Saturday. "Every athlete went up there and nailed their routines. For Lexy to score a 10 was a long time coming. She has done a lot of 10-worthy routines in her life. We are so happy for her." 

Ramler won the all-around with a score of 39.550.
