SEC Gymnastics Championships – WTF

Wow.

The best of the NCAA is the Southeastern Conference, in my opinion. Check how close the team scores are for the top 3 squads.

What parity!

Team Scores

Georgia 197.350
Alabama 197.325
Florida 197.325
LSU 196.500
Auburn 196.100
Arkansas 194.650
Kentucky 194.025

Alabama Gymnastics

But that’s not the BIG story of the night.

Florida seemed to have this meet locked up. An unexpected fall from Amanda Castillo made it close.

Then the Georgia Head Coach made this statement: “Alabama was great tonight,” Yoculan said. “They nailed it on vault and they deserved to win it.”

In the end, due to a judging error, after over 30min of number crunching, Georgia was named the winner of its 16th SEC title.

I’m the one claiming the Women’s NCAA has our sport all figured out. But a judging debacle like this reminds me of some of the worst FIG competition disasters.
