Utah 197.675 over Georgia 197.125

A great competition. Full results.

… Unfortunately, Saturday’s meet wasn’t all good news for the Utes. Sophomore Maddy Stover, the anchor on balance beam and a key performer on floor, injured her shoulder during her balance beam routine, which earned a 9.825. …

Farden said he isn’t sure if the Utes will have her back for the postseason, which starts Saturday with the Pac-12 Championships. The Utes already are without sophomore Kari Lee, who tore her Achilles’ tendon earlier in the season.

If UCLA could only get all their star power healthy and hitting at the same time, they could finish high at Championships this year.

… In my time here in Michigan, I have learned many life lessons.

The first of many includes learning to ask for help. I am a very independent and self-sufficient person by nature, so it is hard for me to reach out and rely on other people for assistance. It took me time to understand that asking for help is okay and not a weakness. Learning to rely on my teammates and other staff for support was a great lesson that I learned to embrace.
