The U.S. dominated the 5th City of Jesolo Trophy, winning both team and all-around titles Saturday in the beachside town outside Venice.

The U.S., which had five gymnasts competing Amanars on vault, won the senior team title over Italy and Russia.

First-year senior Kyla Ross scored just under 60.000 (59.850) to lead an American sweep of the senior medals. Alexandra Raisman was second (59.050) ahead of another first-year senior, Sarah Finnegan (58.650).

World vault champion McKayla Maroney, fourth all-around, outscored the field with her outstanding Amanar, which brought an even 16.000. Ross had the top score on uneven bars (15.050) and balance beam (15.500).

Russian star Anastasia Grishina was fifth after missing her routine on uneven bars. Grishina — who went 0-for-3 on beam at last week's Russian championships — snapped her unlucky streak, staying on to score 15.050. The elegant Russian topped the field on floor exercise with 14.850 (9.000 Execution, click to watch).

Carlotta Ferlito was the top Italian in eighth (56.550), finishing just ahead of former world champion Vanessa Ferrari (55.900).

Two-time world all-around medalist Rebecca Bross, who underwent knee surgery in August, competed uneven bars and balance beam.

Lexie Priessman won the junior all-around title over Italian Enus Mariani, 56.950-56.000. American Ballie Key was third (55.650).

The powerful Preissman had the top scores on vault (15.850 for her Amanar). U.S. junior champion Kaitlyn Ohashi competed two events only, but outscored the field on both (15.150 on uneven bars and 15.100 on balance beam). Russia's Maria Kharenkova, fourth all-around, had the best score on floor exercise (14.300).

The U.S. topped Italy and Russia in the junior competition as well. The Romanian junior squad finished fourth with weak vault and uneven bars.
