Utah failed to qualify for the NCAA Womens Gymnastics Championships Super Six team finals for the first time after being the first to be held out due to a tiebreaker.

Summer Reid scored a 9.925 on beam to put the Red Rocks into a tie with Nebraska for the last advancing spot, which had never happened before.

Even coach Greg Marsden didn't know what the tiebreaker was. When he found out, he and his team accepted their fate with great dignity.

"The breaks have gone our way for a lot of years, and they didn't on the tiebreaker,'' said Marsden.

The tiebreaker goes to the sixth scores of each tying team in each event, when usually only five of a teams six scores count. Utah had a fall and the Huskers advanced to their first Super Six.
