Marsden says the top contenders will get their scores, regardless. "For those people, I think the quality of their gymnastics and their score is going to hold up no matter what session they're in. If there's a little bit of fatigue on the part of judges, it might help some of those other people," he said.

Rotating with Utah in the preliminaries will be Michigan at-large all-arounder Sarah Curtis.

Southern Utah's Elise Wheeler, an at-large all-arounder, will also compete in the evening session, rotating with Arkansas.

Former Ute Sarah Shire, another at-large all-arounder, will compete in the afternoon session and rotate with Georgia. Shire spent her freshman season last year at Utah but transferred by mutual agreement back to her hometown school, Missouri. She is from Columbia, Mo.
