    I just wonder where the pictures of the SUU gymnasts are? There were only pictures of U of U and BYU gymnasts. Also, SUU finishes second and gets very little recognition. They are a team that has been getting better every year, finishing ahead of BYU and USU a number of times, and yes I understand the U is fantastic but still let's recognize that our state is full more than one great gymnastic teams.

    You are exactly right! Sorry if your a Y fan, but Cattermole is horrible. If you notice, he doesn't even spot his girls. I can't tell you how many times I've seen him just let his girls SPLAT! to the floor. We anyone sends their daughter there is amazing to me.
    Now about the utes (maybe jl should be a UTE fan)
    this team is a great team to watch. The crowd all loves Kristina, but there are some great younger girls that will be ready to take her spotlight next year. It would be great if the Utes could win it all this year! Maybe if they keep up with the strong mentallity they will!
    GO UTES!!!

    What a fantastic team we have to enjoy here in Utah. Thanks for making this available to families for such a deal (free most the time)!

    Excellent write-up! I totally agree the Utes were amazing in the way they handled the potential distractions of a four team meet. The first rotation took its toll on some gymnasts I feel, but the Utes were Red Rock solid!

    The team work was again outstanding! As mentioned before, I hate mentioning names, but there are two seniors that really know how to step it up! Nina and Kris . . . WOW! The mental toughness of the whole team is most noteworthy!!

    What a test to prepare for the rest of the season (and beyond)! A four team meet in front of a huge crowd Friday night, then competing again three nights later in Logan, and next Friday after four days in Lincoln. Go Utes!! We love you!!

    Shouldn't BYU be better than this. Something is wrong. Look at the coaching.
