The University of Utah's gymnastics team took the last week off from competition, but senior Ashley Postell kept her No. 1 ranking in the NCAA all-around and balance beam and remained in a tie for second on floor, though she dropped to first to third in vaulting in the rankings Monday.
The Utes stayed No. 2 in the team poll to Georgia, which increased its lead by five-thousandths of a point thanks to Saturday's highest-in-the-nation 197.90 score.
Southern Utah moved back into the top 25 at No. 23, while Brigham Young is 34th and Utah State 42nd.
Postell's Regional Qualifying Score, which is used to determine all rankings, is 39.620. Ute junior Kristina Baskett slipped from a tie for fourth in all-around to a tie for seventh while she, too, was idle last week. Her RQS is 39.375. On bars, Baskett is tied for third and Postell for ninth. Baskett is ninth in vault. They are the only individuals from the state in this week's rankings.
Utah lost its top billing in vaulting, falling to third. It is still No. 2 on balance beam with Southern Utah moving up three to 22nd. The Utes are third on floor and fourth on bars; SUU is 11th.
This week's meets find Southern Utah at BYU, Oregon State at Utah and Utah State hosting San Jose State, all on Friday starting at 7 p.m., except for the Aggies, who open at 6:30 p.m.
