The U.S. senior and junior squads once again dominated at the 7th City of Jesolo International Trophy, which began Saturday in the resort town north of Venice.

The competition included full teams from the Australia, Japan, Italy and United States. Romania sent a full team for the junior competition and two individuals for the senior event.

In the senior event, the U.S. topped the host nation by nearly 10 full points, with Japan taking third. The U.S. gymnasts swept the all-around medals and had the highest score on every event except one.

2012 Olympic gold medalist Kyla Ross led the U.S. women to the senior team title, scoring 58.00 even. Ross balked on her first vault (1 point penalty), but on her second attempt she vaulted a clean double-twisting Yurchenko with a small hop for 14.300. She had the best mark on balance beam (14.450) with a routine that included a ff, layout; switch ring; side somi; switch leap, back tuck; punch front, wolf jump; stuck double tuck. Ross, who won four silver medals at last fall's world championships; had the second-best score on uneven bars (Maloney to Pak; Maloney-half; toe-on blind to Jaeger; toe full to bail; double layout; 14.900) and on floor exercise (14.35) with an Arabian double front to stag jump; double pike; 1 1/2 to layout front full and a double tuck dismount.

MyKayla Skinner had the highest score of the day with her Cheng Fei vault (Yurchenko half-on, layout Rudi off). Madison Kocian topped uneven bars (14.950) while Alyssa Baumann led the qualification on floor exercise (14.400).

Romanian Andreea Munteanu earned the high mark on balance beam, with 14.800.

In the junior competition, Bailie Key led the U.S. to first over Romania and Italy. Key, the 2013 U.S. junior national champion, earned the highest scores on vault, uneven bars and floor exercise. Teammate Norah Flatley had the best mark on balance beam.

Hi, Ross did not compete a 5/2 (2 and 1/2) twisting to front full (D+C), she competed a 3/2 (1 and 1/2) twisting to front full (C+C).
