This is a University of Georgia Gym Dogs site focusing on dual meet and tournament results over the 2014 season. Comparable information on previous seasons can be found by using the links on the right. The first dual meet of the 2014 season took place on January 10, 2014.

Now that the season is in full swing, there will be regular updates of this page. We might note that this season’s “Sneak Peek” took place on December 14th, 2013. There is a YouTube video entitled “2013 Sneak Peek Highlights” that shows some of routines done in the Suzanne Yoculan Center during the “Sneak Peek.” Briefly, both the returning veterans and the newcomers looked surprisingly sharp considering that they still had four weeks to go before their first regular season dual meet.

If you go to the index below on the left you will find links to all Georgia’s 2014 dual meets and tournament competitions.

The 2014 NCAA Women’s Gymnastics Championships will take place on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday (April 18-20). In alphabetical order, the teams that qualified for the National Championships are Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, L.S.U., Michigan, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Penn State, Stanford, UCLA, and Utah. There will be two preliminary sessions on Friday, April 18.

Georgia will compete in Prelim 1 at 2:00 PM Eastern time. The other teams in Prelim 1 will be L.S.U., Stanford, Michigan, Oklahoma, and Illinois. Prelim 2 will take place at 8:00 PM Eastern time. The six teams in that preliminary session will be Florida, Penn State, Utah, UCLA, Alabama, and Nebraska.

Gymnasts on non-qualifying teams who qualified as individuals for the all-around competition are Katherine Grable (Arkansas), Chelsea Tang (Oregon State), Caitlin Brown (Iowa State), Lindsay Mable (Minnesota), Madeline Gardiner (Oregon State), Marie Case (Kent State), Kalliah McCartney (Sacramento State), Moriah Martin (Denver), Alicia Asturias (California), Alexis Gunzelman (Rutgers), Hope Sloanhoffer (West Virginia), and Amanda Wellick (Arkansas).

Individual event qualifiers on bars are Kelsey Morris (Boise State) and Dallas Crawford (California). Individual qualifiers on beam are Hanna Nordquist (Minnesota), Emily Heinz (Central Michigan), Halle Moraw (Central Michigan), Taylor Noonan (Central Michigan), Audrey Harrison (Kentucky), and Kaytianna McMillan (Oregon State). Finally, the individual qualifier on floor is Ciera Perkins (Boise State).

Getting back to the team competition, in terms of expectations based on seeding, the situation Georgia faces in the afternoon preliminary session is as follows:

Prelim Session 1 (18 Apr 2014)
Seed Team Name Team NQS
01 *LSU 396.045
02 *Oklahoma 395.500
03 Stanford 394.090
04 Michigan 393.855
05 *Georgia 393.640
06 Illinois 393.250

Georgia is going to have to bring their A-game to their preliminary session, because only the top three teams in each session will advance to the Super Six NCAA Team Finals, to be held on April 19. Georgia is seeded 5th out of 6 teams in their session. The top 4 teams all have defeated Georgia this season; however, we believe that the Gym Dogs have a realistic chance of advancing to the Super Six Finals if they can muster the determination and focus that is characteristic of champions in any sport.

In terms of expectations based on seeding, the situation faced by Alabama and the other teams assigned to the evening session is described below:

Prelim Session 2 (18 Apr 2014)
Seed Team Name Team NQS
01 *Alabama 395.165
02 *Florida 394.945
03 Utah 394.875
04 *Nebraska 393.870
05 UCLA 393.605
06 Penn St 393.200

Let us note that the seedings are based on “National Qualifying Score” (NQS), which is defined as the sum of a team’s score in its NCAA Regional competition and its RQS as of March 24th. To state that more succinctly:  NQS = Regional Score + RQS.

Late Note (18 April 2004).— In the two tables above, the teams that advanced to the Super Six Finals are those marked with asterisks. The expectations were pretty well borne out by the actual results; however, Georgia and Nebraska advanced, while Stanford, Michigan, and Utah did not. Congratulations, Gym Dogs! But it is too soon to celebrate, as the NCAA Super Six Finals take place tomorrow at 7:00 PM Eastern Time. Stay tuned!

Preseason Coaches’ Poll

On Monday, December 14, 2013, reported the results of the National Association of Collegiate Gymnastics Coaches preseason poll. The coaches’ ranking reveals, among other things, the anticipated strength of the Southeastern Conference (SEC), as seven SEC schools cracked the Top-25. The teams at the Gym Dogs‘ projected rank ± 7 are as follows:

Coaches’ Ranking:  (1*) Florida; (2*) Alabama; (3*) Oklahoma; (4) UCLA; (5*) L.S.U.; (6*) Utah; (7) Michigan; (8) Georgia; (9*) Stanford; (10) Nebraska; (11*) Arkansas; (12) Oregon State; (13*) Auburn; (14) Minnesota; and (15) Penn State.  The asterisks indicate teams that the Gym Dogs will face during the 2014 dual meet season, which include six of the top ten and eight of the top thirteen.

Teams that participated in the 2013 Super Six Finals (last season) must be considered contenders for doing the same this season. The Coaches’ Poll is indeed highly correlated with the final 2013 season results. It’s hard to foretell how closely actual team performances this season will agree with preseason expectations; however, it seems very clear that this is going to be an exceptionally competitive season for the Gym Dogs. They will be underdogs in five of their dual meets, which reflects the exceptional strength of their dual-meet schedule (see below).

§ § §

Strength of Schedules

Part of the reason that a team’s RQS matters more than its W-L record is that women’s gymnastics teams differ dramatically in the strengths of their schedules. Speaking of which, the College Gym Fans website provided an analysis of how the top women’s gymnastics teams rank in terms of 2014 schedule difficulty. The Gym Dogs face the toughest schedule. The top ten teams are:  (1) Georgia; (2) Arkansas; (3) L.S.U.; (4) Alabama; (5) Florida; (6) Oklahoma; (7) Stanford; (8) UCLA; (9) Utah; and (10-tied) Michigan and Oregon State. A tough schedule probably is an advantage in preparing for the end-of-season tournaments (including the NCAA Championships); it probably is a disadvantage in terms of W-L records, because even the best team in the country may have an off-day in one or more of its meets, putting numbers in the loss column.

§ § §

Calculating Regional Qualifying Score (RQS)

Unlike in baseball, basketball, or football, won-lost records don’t count for much in gymnastics. In fact, dual meet W-L records don’t count at all, at least not directly, although they have some symbolic value and probably affect athletes’ confidence to some extent. But the way gymnastics is structured, Regional Qualifying Score (RQS) is the only important criterion prior to the NCAA Regional meets in early April. After that, placing higher than the competition does matter, becoming crucial for advancement (if all goes well) to the NCAA National Championships meet, and then (if all continues to go well) to the Super Six Team Finals. Competing successfully against other teams matters in the tournaments, but the focus before tournament time must be raising RQS as much as possible, which requires scoring well in “away” meets, as well as at home. Some key information about the Gym Dogs’ season so far is summarized below:

   Date      Score  Venue  Opponent
 1-10-2014   196.500  A    Oklahoma 
 1-12-2014   196.150  A    Stanford 
 1-24-2014   196.700  A    Florida
 2-07-2014   196.825  A    Alabama
 2-21-2014   196.875  A    Auburn
 3-15-2014   197.600  A    Utah
 3-22-2014   197.150  A    SEC's
 1-17-2014   197.175  H    L.S.U.
 1-20-2014   197.400  H    Iowa
 2-01-2014   197.300  H    Kentucky
 3-01-2014   197.650  H    Arkansas 
 3-08-2014   197.025  H    Denver

Georgia began the season on January 10, 2014 with a 196.500 “away” score against Oklahoma (in Norman, Oklahoma). They have had eleven meets so far, seven “away” meets (A) and five “home” meets (H). Their top three away-meet scores are 197.600 (Utah), 197.150 (SEC Championships), and 196.875 (Auburn). Their top three scores excluding those just given are 197.650 (Arkansas), 197.400 (Iowa), and 197.300 (Kentucky). As it happens in this case, all of those are “home” scores; however, the protocol permits them to be either home or away. The RQS protocol requires deleting the top score from that list of six, and then averaging the five remaining scores. In this illustration, Georgia’s 197.650 against Arkansas must be deleted; and thus the calculation is:

197.600 + 197.150 + 196.875 +197.400 + 197.300

RQS  =  ———————————————————————  =  197.265


The sum in the numerator (i.e., 986.325), divided by five, is 986.325 ÷ 5 = 197.265. Thus, Georgia’s current (as of March 22) RQS is 197.265, which will appear in the March 24 listing. Georgia probably will be ranked 6th next week. UCLA scored 196.525 over the weekend, which is insufficient for leapfrogging Georgia. The University of Michigan scored a 197.550 over the weekend, which will raise their RQS considerably; without doing the calculations it is hard to know if they will leapfrog Georgia. We doubt it; but they may leapfrog UCLA and move into the 7th position. The new ranking will be published on March 24 and we will know for sure after that. At this point, Georgia will qualify for an NCAA Regional competition with absolute certainty; but their seeding, and the seeding of the teams they will compete against, are very uncertain. Although the Gym Dogs did not do as well as they wanted to in the SEC’s, they did post their second-best “away” score to raise their RQS and probably position themselves advantageously for the post-season. The SEC Championships count as an “away” meet and thus they are important beyond the matter of Conference bragging rights!

Clearly, RQS is a very important measure of team performance; and often the differences among teams come down to their performances on the road. Georgia’s goal during this part of the season must be to raise their RQS incrementally each week. Wins and losses are less important than RQS improvements — although wins are always nice!

§ § §

The Points of Greatest Leverage for Attaining Their Best
Mary Beth Box
Georgia’s solidest performers on the balance beam are Lindsey Cheek, Mary Beth Box (pictured above),
Kaylan Earls, and Brittany Rogers. Their solidest performers on floor exercise are Brandie Jay, Kaylan
Earls, Mary Beth Box, Brittany Rogers, Morgan Reynolds, and Cat Hires. To be competitive against a
Florida or an Alabama, they must get incremental improvements from the six floor performers
listed; and they need to find two beam performers who can fill the lineup spots that have
been problematic so far. If Georgia can achieve the required improvements on beam
and floor over the next six weeks, then the Gym Dogs could be very
competitive against the best teams in the United
States.  That’s worth working for!
§ § §

As this is being written, the Gym Dogs rank 6th in the nation on vault, 1st in the nation on the uneven bars, 5th in the nation on the balance beam, and 9th in the nation on the floor exercise. Clearly, they are finding lineups that work well, and they are working out the early-season kinks in their routines. The athletes and the coaches deserve a lot of credit for the recent progress they have made on all four events!

§ § §

Gym Dog First-Team All-Americans!

Three Georgia Gym Dogs will receive First-Team All-American honors: Lindsey Cheek on vault, uneven bars, and balance beam; Brandie Jay on vault and floor exercise; and Mary Beth Box on balance beam. These three gymnasts will compete in the individual event finals, which will take place on Sunday (April 20) at 3:00 PM Eastern Time. Lindsey Cheek and Brandie Jay will be third and seventh, respectively, in the vault lineup; and Lindsey Cheek will be the 12th and final gymnast in the uneven bars lineup. On the balance beam, Mary Beth Box will go third and Lindsey Cheek will go ninth. Brandie Jay will perform in the second spot in the floor exercise competition. Being First Team All-American is high honor by itself, but being on the podium to receive a medal would be a very memorable achievement. Show ’em what you’ve got, Lindsey, Mary Beth, and Brandie!

Georgia Qualifies for the NCAA National Championships
(April 05, 2014)

Pack Your Suitcases for Birmingham!
The Gym Dogs had their ups and downs, but in the end they had qualified for the NCAA Women’s Gymnastics
National Championships, which will take place in Birmingham, Alabama on April 18-20.

Going into this meet, the Gym Dogs’ goal, first and foremost, was to qualify for the NCAA National Championship meet, to be held in Birmingham, Alabama on April 18-20. Mission accomplished! The University of Michigan won the Southeast Regional meet with a team score of 196.750; Georgia placed second with a score of 196.375; Central Michigan University was third with a score of 195.600; Ohio State was fourth with a score of 195.100; North Carolina State was fifth with a score of 194.550; and Rutgers University was sixth with a score of 193.750.

Georgia began the meet with a bye. In the second rotation, the Gym Dogs were on the uneven bars; and they seemed to be on fire. Brandie Jay led off with a 9.900, followed by Cat Hires with another 9.900 and Kiera Brown with a third consecutive 9.900. Lindsey Cheek added a 9.950, followed by Brittany Rogers with another 9.950, giving the Gym Dogs a team score on bars of 49.600.

In the third rotation, Georgia ran into trouble on the balance beam, suffering two falls, one of which had to count in their team score. They finished the rotation with a 48.475 team score. Morgan Reynolds posted a 9.850 and Ashlyn Broussard added a 9.825.

In the fourth rotation, Georgia had another bye. In the fifth rotation, Georgia again encountered some problems on the floor exercise, counting their fourth missed routine of the day, plus another score under 9.500, which had to count in their team score. They finished the rotation with a team score of 48.875. Reducing the damage, in the final four routines, Morgan Reynolds posted a 9.825; Mary Beth Box added a 9.800; Kaylan Earls added a 9.875; and Brandie Jay anchored with a 9.900.

Going into the sixth rotation, where the Gym Dogs would finish on the vault, it was clear that the team would have to finish strong to be assured of achieving their primary goal. Michigan had opened up an insurmountable lead by posting a 49.275 on the uneven bars while Georgia was faltering on the floor exercise. The solid finish on floor by Morgan Reynolds, Mary Beth Box, Kaylan Earls, and Brandie Jay in the last four positions had helped a lot; but the fact remained that Michigan almost certainly would take the #1 spot, and Central Michigan was nipping at Georgia’s heels for the #2 spot.

Recognizing the challenge, Morgan Reynolds led off for Georgia, posting a solid 9.825. Chelsea Davis followed with 9.875 and Cat Hires added another 9.875. Lindsey Cheek then won the event for Georgia with a 9.950, and Brandie Jay added her third 9.900 of the meet to insure that the Gym Dogs would be able to pack their bags for Birmingham! To their credit, Central Michigan University posted a very respectable 49.225 on floor in the final rotation; but Georgia was not to be caught.

We should, however, mention some notable performances by athletes on non-qualifying teams, which included a 9.850 by Central Michigan’s Preslee Harrad on floor exercise; a 9.850 on beam and a 9.875 on floor by CMU’s Emily Heinz; an 9.850 on beam and a 9.900 on floor by CMU’s Halle Maraw; a 9.850 on beam by CMU’s Taylor Noonan; and a 9.850 on bars by CMU’s Karlee Teet. NC State’s Lane Jarred posted a 9.850 on floor; and NC State’s Brittni Watkins had a pair of 9.850s on vault and floor. Ohio State’s Alex DeLuca had a 9.850 on floor; and OSU’s Sarah Miller had a 9.850 on floor. Also, OSU’s Melanie Schaffer scored a 9.875 on floor. It’s not clear yet which of those athletes, if any, may be going to Birmingham as individuals. We should get additional information over the next few days on what teams and what individuals from non-qualifying teams will be invited to take part in the National Championships. For now, we can celebrate the fact that the Gym Dogs as a team with be among them! Go Dogs!

The 2014 SEC Women’s Gymnastics Championships
(Saturday, March 22, Birmingham, Alabama )

SEC Championships

The 2014 Conference Championships included 8 SEC schools, namely:  Alabama, Arkansas, Auburn, Florida, Kentucky, Georgia, L.S.U, and Missouri. The teams seeded one through four competed in the evening session at 7:00 PM Eastern Time; the teams seeded five through eight competed in the afternoon session at 3:00 PM Eastern Time. Seeding was based on Regional Qualifying Scores as of the March 17 listing. Georgia was ranked 6th in the nation and 4th in the Southeastern Conference; thus, they competed in the evening session.

A summary of the team results for all eight teams, plus the individual Gym Dogs’ scores, can be found here.

In Georgia’s session, Florida started on vault, LSU on bars, Alabama on beam, and Georgia on floor. In our judgment, there is no particular advantage in starting a meet on vault, even though that is the home team’s prescribed starting event in dual meets. As long as all teams have to compete all four events under essentially identical conditions, the only concerns are staying in the moment, taking every routine one element at a time, and doing one’s best! It should be noted that the Conference Meet is considered an “away” meet for all eight teams for purposes of computing final RQSs.

The good news for Georgia is that their team score in the SEC’s, which was 197.150, raised their RQS from 197.200 to 197.265, which should make them the top seed in the Athens NCAA Regional competition. The less good news is that they placed 4th out of 8 teams, and of course every team wants to win. Still, they were seeded 4th and they finished 4th. Alabama finished strong to overtake Florida for the win.

Alabama finished with a final score of 197.875 at the BJCC Arena in front of 8,256 fans, which we have been told is the third-highest crowd in the event’s “neutral site” history. (As implied a moment ago, the BJCC Arena in Birmingham is considered a neutral site.) Nationally #1 ranked Florida placed second in 197.700, #2 ranked LSU was third in 197.325, while #6 ranked Georgia, as just noted, placed fourth in 197.150. Number 12 Auburn was fifth with a score of 195.550; Kentucky was sixth with a 195.075; #15 Arkansas was seventh at 194.900; and Missouri was eighth with a score of 194.650.

At this point, the most important thing for the Gym Dogs to do is to fine-tune their routines, especially beam and floor, for the upcoming NCAA Regionals. A team has to make it out of their Regional to qualify for the NCAA Nationals. At this point, that is job #1.

Georgia vs. Utah
(Saturday, March 15, 2014)

Brittany Rogers scored a 39.600 in the all-around competition in the Georgia-Utah duel meet, improving her
all-around RQS from 39.435 to 39.490 and moving her into the top ten arounders in the nation. She also
ranks in the top 10 on the uneven bars.
§ § §

Saturday’s meet with Utah took place at 9:00 PM Eastern Time in Salt Lake City, Utah. The Utes won the meet with a very strong score of 198.025 in front of their hometown fans. Georgia, however, had their best “away” meet this season — by a large amount — scoring a 197.600. That raised their RQS to 197.200. All the team and individual scores of both teams can be found here.

In front of 15,224 fans Saturday night at the Huntsman Center, the Gym Dogs fought hard, but Utah prevailed. To do well in this environment is a tough assignment, as the fans are overwhelmingly against them. But the fact that the Gym Dogs kept the scores very close for most of the meet shows how determined they were. At the NCAA tournaments, performing well requires doing well in front of a large mixed audience, the majority of whom are rooting for other teams.

In the first rotation, the Gym Dogs were on the uneven bars and Utah was on vault. Georgia is the top-rated team in the nation on the uneven bars, but were slightly off their usual performance, perhaps still trying to get used to the environment. Nonetheless, they scored 49.325 as a team, led by Brandie Jay (9.875) and Brittany Rogers (9.900). Over on the vault, Utah finished up with a trio of 9.950s from Kailah Delaney, Tory Wilson, and Georgia Dabritz for a 49.575 team score, their best of the 2014 season.

Switching events for the second rotation, the Gym Dogs made up part of their deficit, scoring 49.525 as a team, led by Chelsea Davis (9.875), Cat Hires (9.900), Brittany Rogers (9.925), and Brandie Jay (9.950). Meanwhile, Utah was putting up a team score of 49.375 on the uneven bars, led by Breanna Hughes (9.875), Corrie Lothrop (9.875), and Georgia Dabritz (9.925).

In the third rotation, Georgia would be on floor exercise and Utah would be on the balance beam. The Gym Dogs put up a very good team score of 49.450, led by Cat Hires (9.900), Mary Beth Box (9.875), Brittany Rogers (9.875), and Brandie Jay (9.950). Georgia has often run into trouble on floor exercise (also balance beam) in away meets against strong competition, so scoring a 49.450 in front of 15,224 fans at Utah’s Huntsman Center was a very good accomplishment and perhaps a sign of good things to come! Utah, however, scored a season high 49.500 on the balance beam with a very strong performance of their own.

Georgia would finish on the balance beam, the other of their nemeses in away meets this season. They needed only a 48.700 team score to crack the 197-barrier for the first time in an away meet this season. But they would do much better than that, scoring a 49.300 instead, led by Morgan Reynolds (9.875), Brittany Rogers (9.900), and Lindsey Cheek (9.925). Mary Beth Box and Kaylan Earls had bobbles, but still turned in solid 9.800s to insure that the Gym Dogs would finish strong. Over on the floor exercise, Utah was making it very difficult for Georgia to overcome their deficit, scoring 49.575 as a team, led by Becky Tutka (9,925), Georgia Dabritz (9.950), and Nansy Damianova (10.0). Technically, this meet was a loss for Georgia, but it was a very encouraging meet nonetheless.

Brittany Rogers won the all-around title with a 39.600, her highest all-around score, and Utah’s Tory Wilson was second with a 39.400.

Georgia vs. Denver
(Saturday, March 08, 2014)

Saturday’s meet with Denver was designated Senior Day in honor of Lindsey Cheek, Kaylan Earls, and Cat Hires, for whom this would be their final home appearance in a regular dual meet. All three seniors contributed to Georgia’s victory, 197.025 to 195.825, over the Denver Pioneers. Lindsey Cheek gave valuable performances of 9.900 on vault and 9.975 on the uneven bars; Kaylan Earls contributed a 9.875 on the balance beam and a 9.900 on the floor exercise; and Cat Hires contributed a 9.925 on the vault, a 9.950 on the unever bars, and a 9.850 on the floor exercise. The seniors have been counted on heavily this season, and they have been up to the job. We will miss them and all the things, tangible and intangible, they have contributed — but of course their season isn’t over yet! There still are three or four more goals to pursue!

Senior Leadership Is Very Important for Any College Team

As for the meet itself, all the team and individual scores of both teams can be found here. Georgia began with a 49.625 on vault, added a 49.600 on the uneven bars, followed that with a 49.075 on the balance beam, and finished with a 48.725 on the floor exercise. While the highlights were high indeed, the team also showed inconsistencies on beam and floor. They had three missed routines, one of which had to be a counting score (on the floor exercise).

The Gym Dogs’ Brittany Rogers won the all-around title with a very nice 39.575, raising her all-around RQS from 39.365 to 39.435, which may raise her national rank to the top 10 (she was 12th in the March 3 rankings), depending on what others do this weekend. In second place was Denver’s Nina McGee with a 39.300; and in third place was Denver’s Moriah Martin with a 39.200.

Big Scores.  By our definition, those are scores ≥ 9.875. Chelsea Davis, Cat Hires, Brittany Rogers, Lindsey Cheek, and Brandie Jay achieved such scores on vault; Brandie Jay, Cat Hires, Kiera Brown, Lindsey Cheek, Brittany Rogers, and Chelsea Davis did so on the uneven bars; Kaylan Earls did so on the balance beam; and Brittany Rogers and Kaylan Earls did so on the floor exercise. That adds up to 14 out of 20 counting scores, which in fact is one more than they achieved in their meet vs. Arkansas, in which their final team score was 197.650.

Next week the Gym Dogs will travel to Salt Lake City, Utah to compete against the Utah Utes in the latter’s home arena. Utah will be a tough meet for Georgia, but it also will offer them an opportunity to earn a high “away” score and insure that they will be one of the top seeds in the upcoming NCAA Regionals. Stay tuned!

Georgia vs. Arkansas
(Saturday, March 01, 2014)

Mary Beth Box
Last season, Mary Beth Box’s performances
were limited to two exhibitions on floor, one
at Kentucky and another at NC State. This
season, she is nationally ranked on the
balance beam (RQS = 9.855) and also
is a solid performer on floor exercise
(RQS = 9.820). At the risk of being
corny, we are proud of her!
§ § §

Saturday’s meet with Arkansas was designated Georgia’s annual Alumni Day, which this year was to feature the Gym Dogs’ National Championship teams of 1989, 1999, and 2009. Wherever they’ve gone since graduating, the members of those National Championship teams have ties to this program that many of their fans still cherish, and of course they serve as role models for the current team. Actually, alumni from several earlier teams were on hand — it is always good to see them!

In the meet itself, Georgia defeated Arkansas by a score of 197.650 to 195.975, a great meet for Georgia and probably a disappointing one for the visitors. The Gym Dogs’ Regional Qualifying Score (RQS) was raised from 196.975 to 197.020. Although this afternoon’s score was their highest of the season, it had to be thrown out because of the RQS protocol, which requires deleting a team’s highest score before doing the calculations. At the same time, though, it permitted Georgia’s previous highest score, a 197.400, to be counted, replacing an earlier 197.175. This indirect influence on RQS is shown here, in this case pushing the Gym Dogs over that psychological 197 barrier!

Details of the individual and team scoring can be found here. Rather than repeat those details, important as they are, we will report on a matter important for competing well at the SEC and NCAA tournaments, which are looming not very far ahead.

Big Scores. Gym Dogs greats of the past, such as many of those who were honored today, had the ability to consistently post scores of ≥ 9.875, which are necessary to compete with a Florida, an Alabama, an Oklahoma, or others, who are likely to be posting team scores in the 197’s in the NCAA Preliminary Round. Gym Dogs who posted scores at that level were Cat Hires, Lindsey Cheek, and Brandie Jay on vault; Brandie Jay, Cat Hires, Kiera Brown, Lindsey Cheek, Brittany Rogers, and Chelsea Davis on the uneven bars; Lindsey Cheek and Kaylan Earls on the balance beam; and Mary Beth Box and Kaylan Earls on the floor exercise. That is 13 out of 20 counting scores that meet the level likely to be needed to place high in the upcoming tournaments. If we add the others that were “close to big,” we see that the Gym Dogs are very close to being at a level with the very best in the nation. Keep up the good work, Gym Dogs!

A tip of the hat also should go to our visitors, especially Katherine Grable and Shelby Salmon, who posted big scores. Katherine Grable won the all-around with a splendid 39.600.

Georgia’s next meet will be against the University of Denver on Saturday, March 08, 2014 in Athens, Georgia at 4:00 p.m. Eastern Time. Stay tuned!

Georgia Defeats Auburn at Auburn 196.875 to 196.100
(Friday, February 21, 2014)

The Gym Dogs improved their RQS from 196.900 to 196.975 as they defeated the Auburn Tigers 196.875 to 196.100. Georgia had one excellent event (bars), two quite good events (vault and beam), and one event that didn’t go too well (floor). This had promised to be a tough meet for Georgia, as the Tigers were coming off a team score of 197.100 in a close loss to the University of Alabama. But Auburn scored a very low 48.525 in the third rotation, having to count a fall off the balance beam, for all intents and purposes insuring that Georgia would win the meet. To their credit, however, both teams had strong final rotations, the Gym Dogs scoring a 49.250 on beam, their highest “away” score of the season on beam. All in all, this was a good meet for the Gym Dogs, but not the 197+ that would have made it a great meet. Full scores for both teams are presented here.

Sixth-ranked Georgia produced its highest road score of the season and defeated #10 Auburn 196.875-196.100 Friday night in the Auburn Arena. The Gym Dogs (4-4, 3-2 Southeastern Conference) jumped out to an early lead with a 49.5 on bars, their second-highest score away from home this season. Chelsea Davis placed first with a 9.950 in the anchor position, while Brandie Jay, Lindsey Cheek and Brittany Rogers added a trio of 9.900s. Over on the vault, Auburn was opening with a 49.025, led by a 9.900 from M.J. Rott.

Georgia added to its lead in the second rotation, scoring a 49.225 on vault to Auburn’s 49.100 on the uneven bars. Lindsey Cheek and Brandie Jay led the way for the Gym Dogs with a pair of 9.900s, while Megan Walker and Caitlin Atkinson led the way for the Tigers, also with a pair of 9.900s. At that point, Georgia’s lead in the team scoring was 98.725 to 98.125.

In the third rotation, Georgia was on the floor, while Auburn was on the balance beam. Georgia started with a 9.825 from Kaylan Earls, a 9.800 from Cat Hires, and a 9.850 from Morgan Reynolds. If they could have maintained that 9.825 average, they would have finished the rotation with a 49.125 team score. They ran into a rough period and finished with a 48.900 team score. Over on the balance beam, Auburn also was having some problems. Although Caitlin Atkinson posted a 9.900 in the anchor position, the Tigers finished with a 48.525 for the rotation.

Throughout the season, the Gym Dogs nemesis has been the balance beam in “away” meets. This evening, however, the Gym Dogs hit all six of their routines to score a 49.250. Lindsey Cheek led the team with a 9.875, while Brittany Rogers, Kiera Brown, and Kaylan Earls turned in a trio of 9.850s. Sarah Persinger scored a 9.825, providing some solid insurance if it were needed. Certainly their balance beam performance was a high point for Georgia this evening.

Georgia will return to action for their final SEC meet of the season on Saturday, March 1, at 4:00 PM Eastern Time against Arkansas in Stegeman Coliseum.

Georgia vs. Missouri
(Friday, February 14, 2014)

Unfortunately, this meet was cancelled due to inclement weather. The Missouri Tigers had purchased tickets to Athens, Georgia on a commercial airliner; but the airline cancelled their flight two days prior to this meet because of ice storms, sleet, and heavy snow in both Missouri and Georgia. That was unfortunate, but the airline understandably did not want to risk the safety of its passengers and crew. They made the right decision; but it came at some cost to both the Georgia Gym Dogs and the Missouri Tigers.

Georgia vs. Alabama
(Friday, February 07, 2014)

Tuscaloosa, AL.— Georgia dropped this meet to Alabama 197.500 to 196.825 after leading by 0.050 through the first three rotations. The meet took place in front of 12,318 fans at Coleman Coliseum; and of course people who have been there know that the Coleman Coliseum venue is a tough one in which to compete. We must remind ourselves that in every setback there is a chance to comeback. Statistics on both teams’ lineups and scores are presented on a separate page.

Big Scores. Gym Dogs greats of the past such as Lucy Wener, Hope Spivey, Kim Arnold, Karin Lichey, Courtney Kupets, Katie Heenan, and others had at least one thing in common:  consistency in producing scores of 9.875 or higher. That is the score that, if it were reproduced 20 times, would give a team score of 197.500. Georgia had its share of “big scores” in Tuscaloosa: Brandie Jay and Brittany Rogers on vault; Brittany Rogers, Chelsea Davis, and Kiera Brown on the uneven bars; Kaylan Earls, Linsey Cheek, and Mary Beth Box on the balance beam; and Mary Beth Box and Morgan Reynolds on the floor exercise. That is 10 out of 24 routines.

If even one of the missed routines on the balance beam had been even a 9.800, Georgia would have scored a 49.400 on the balance beam and a 197.325 final team score. That shows how close they are to being a very good team.

The Gym Dogs will return to action on Friday, February 14 at 7:30 PM Eastern Time, when the Mizzou Tigers (Missouri) visit Stegeman Coliseum for the Gym Dogs’ annual “Pink-Out Meet” to aid in the fight against breast cancer. (Update: Unfortunately, this meet had to be cancelled due to the severe weather conditions the Midwest and the South, among other places, are experiencing.)

Georgia vs. Kentucky
(Saturday, February 01, 2014)

Athens, GA.— The Georgia Gym Dogs defeated the Kentucky Wildcats 197.300 to 190.950 in Stegeman Coliseum this afternoon. A listing of all the scores of both teams can be found here.

Big Scores. When one recalls the Gym Dog greats of the past — Lucy Wener, Hope Spivey, Kim Arnold, Karin Lichey, Courtney Kupets, and Katie Heenan, among others — the one thing they had in common was consistency in producing scores of 9.875 or higher. That is the score that, were it reproduced 20 times, would give a team score of 197.500. Georgia gymnasts who produced what we will call “big scores” were Chelsea Davis, Cat Hires, and Lindsey Cheek on vault; Brandie Jay, Lindsey Cheek, Brittany Rogers, and Chelsea Davis on the uneven bars; Lindsey Cheek on the balance beam; and Kaylan Earls and Brandie Jay on the floor exercise. Kudos to them, and smiles as well to all those who fell just short that threshold!

Next up for the Gym Dogs is the Alabama Crimson Tide, whom they will visit in Tuscaloosa, Alabama next Friday evening at 8:30 PM Eastern Time. Georgia will go into that meet ranked higher than Alabama (unlike their ranks in the Pre-Season Coaches’ Poll); but competing against the Tide on their home floor is always a very tough assignment. Alabama will be the fifth top-10 opponent Georgia has faced this season. Go Gym Dogs!

Georgia vs. Florida
(Friday, January 25, 2014)

Gainesville, Fl.— Going into the fourth rotation, the Georgia gymnastics team held an advantage of 0.075 over Florida. Georgia would finish on the beam and Florida would finish on the floor. In that last rotation, however, Florida outscored Georgia by 1.425, erasing their deficit and winning the meet by 1.35 points, 198.050 to 196.700.

The Gym Dogs opened the final rotation with a 9.100 and an 8.900. That meant that they would have to count the 9.1 and would lose the meet unless Florida did something disasterous on the floor. Florida was spectacular on floor, leaving no room for Georgia to make up the deficit. To their credit, however, the Gym Dogs did start to regain their composure a bit. Mary Beth Box, Brittany Rogers, and Lindsey Cheek scored a trio of 9.800s; and Kaylan Earls anchored with a very strong 9.950. Full scores for each team in each rotation are given on a separate page. Congratulations to the Gators on their strong showing.

The important question is not whether a team makes mistakes — we all make our share of them, which is part of being human — it’s how we deal with them. Ashlyn Broussard and Morgan Reynolds, Georgia’s first two competitors on beam, both are freshmen and will learn from their mistakes. Ashlyn scored a 9.850 against Oklahoma; and Morgan scored a 9.800 against L.S.U. Had they reprised those scores against Florida, the Gym Dogs would have scored a 49.200 on beam and finished with a 197.450 total team score. Florida still would have won; however, this calculation illustrates the importance of missed routines for a team’s final score. But we all must live and learn!

The coaches know what they’re doing; and we think they’re wise in doing it. Let’s recall what Alabama Head Coach Sarah Patterson did in the 2010 - 2011 season. She had a young team at Alabama (which included seven freshmen). Her decision was to get those young athletes into the lineups early and often. Let them shake off their freshman anxieties in January and February. She and the other coaches wanted them to be seasoned solid regulars by the time the last part of the competitive season arrived. Alabama, of course, won the NCAA Team Championship that season with decisive help from newcomers Sarah DeMeo (first-team All-America on bars), Kim Jacob (first-team All-America on beam and all-around), and Diandra Milliner (second-team All-America on beam). If you’ve got freshmen with excellent potential, then get them into the lineups early and often. You may sacrifice some high scores and victories in January and February, but the trade-off may be better results in the SEC Championships, the NCAA Regional Championships, and the NCAA National Championships. That’s worth thinking about!

The Gym Dogs will now have a week to look at the videos, practice the parts of their routines (especially on beam) that went wrong, and recharge their batteries before the University of Kentucky Wildcats come to Athens for a dual meet next Saturday at 4:00 PM Eastern Time. Go Gym Dogs!

Georgia vs. Iowa
(January 20, 2014)

Brittany Rogers

The Gym Dogs’ Brittany Rogers won the all-around competition with a 39.525, her best score of the season

Athens, GA.— The Gym Dogs woke up on Monday morning to discover that Georgia had moved from ninth to sixth in national rank, based on their solid outing against L.S.U. three days before. Whether that added motivation or merely made their morning coffee taste a little better is unclear; but what is clearer is that they defeated the Iowa Hawkeyes by a score of 197.400 to 194.675 that afternoon. Only Oklahoma’s 197.700 against Georgia is higher this season so far. The meet brought out an official attendance of 8,871 persons, which is surprisingly large considering that the meet took place on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, when many college students were gone for a three- or four-day weekend.

Georgia opened the meet on vault, scoring 49.175 as a team. Lindsey Cheek, vaulting in the fifth position, led the charge with a 9.900. Chelsea Davis, Cat Hires, and Brandie Jay added a trio of 9.825s; and Brittany Rogers closed out the scoring with a 9.800. Over on bars, Iowa was scoring a 48.775 as a team, led by Sidney Hoerr’s 9.875 in the fifth position.

For the second rotation, Georgia moved to bars and Iowa moved to vault. Brandie Jay opened with a very nice 9.900, yet the best was still to come. Kiera Brown, Lindsey Cheek, and Brittany Rogers added a trio of 9.950s. Chelsea Davis had a rare slip-up on the low bar, but finished with a 9.775. On vault, Iowa scored 48.350 as a team, led by a 9.775 from Amanda Kowalski.

From there Georgia went to beam and Iowa went to floor. Beam has been a somewhat shaky event for Georgia so far this season; but Ashlyn Broussard opened this time with a solid 9.800. The other counting scores were a 9.875 from Mary Beth Box, a 9.900 from Brittany Rogers, and a pair of 9.925s from Lindsey Cheek and Kaylan Earls, giving the Gym Dogs a season high 49.425 for this event. Over on floor, Iowa was getting their highest event score of the meet, a 49.000, their final three routines providing a 9.825 from Angel Metcalf, a 9.800 from Maryah Huntley, and a 9.875 from Sidney Hoerr.

In the fourth and final rotation, Georgia scored a 49.275, beginning with Kaylan Earls’ 9.875 in the lead-off position, and finishing with Brandie Jay’s 9.900 in the anchor position. In between, Morgan Reynolds added 9.825; Mary Beth Box contributed a 9.800; and Brittany Rogers added a 9.875. Finishing on beam, Iowa was having their problems, mostly small deductions, but those add up. Their team score was a modest 48.550, led by a 9.800 from Amanda Kowalski.

The Gym Dogs’ Brittany Rogers won the all-around competition with a strong 39.525; Iowa’s Angel Metcalf placed second with a 39.100.

Coming next for the Gym Dogs are the Florida Gators, whom Georgia will visit on January 24th in the Stephen C. O’Connell Center in Gainesville, Florida.

Georgia vs. L.S.U.
#9 Georgia Defeats #2 L.S.U. 197.175 to 196.875
(Friday, January 17, 2014)

Gym Dog Chelsea Davis began the evening with an auspicious 9.900 on vault, the beginning of what would be a very good meet for Georgia. Gym Dog Brandie Jay would conclude the evening with a 9.900 on floor, an attractive pair of book ends! In between we would see a 9.900 (vault) and a 9.925 (bars) from Lindsey Cheek; a 9.975 (bars) from Chelsea Davis; a 9.900 (bars) from Brittany Rogers; and a 9.900 (floor) from Morgan Reynolds. For a more detailed account of the scoring for both teams, see the Georgia vs. L.S.U. page elsewhere on this site.

The Gym Dogs came out of the gates quickly, posting a 49.375 on vault, courtesy of Chelsea Davis (9.900), Ashlyn Broussard (9.800), Cat Hires (9.850), Brandie Jay (9.850), Lindsey Cheek (9.900), and Brittany Rogers (9.875). Meanwhile, over on bars, L.S.U. was putting up a 49.200, led by Rheagan Courville (9.900), Jessie Jordan (9.875), and Sarie Morrison (9.875).

Switching events for the second rotation, Georgia again gave a strong performance, scoring 49.475 as a team, led by Lindsey Cheek (9.925), Brittany Rogers (9.900), and Chelsea Davis (9.975). On vault, L.S.U. was refusing to roll over and die, scoring 49.425 as a team, led by Ashleigh Gnat (9.900) and Sarie Morrison (9.925).

In the third rotation, Georgia was on beam and L.S.U. was on floor. Georgia encountered a bit of trouble, but still cracked the 49 barrier, led by Ashlyn Broussard (9.825), Lindsey Cheek (9.875), and Kaylan Earls (9.850). Meanwhile, L.S.U. was making up part of their deficit, scoring 49.175 as a team, led by Jessica Savona (9.900) and Lloimincia Hall (9.875).

Georgia then went to floor for the final rotation, which had been where they unraveled against Stanford the previous Sunday, able to post only a 48.675 against the Cardinal, which would cost them the victory. But that was not going to happen again! Georgia posted a 49.275 as a team, courtesy of Kaylan Earls (9.825), Cat Hires (9.800), Morgan Reynolds (9.900), Mary Beth Box (9.800), Brittany Rogers (9.850), and Brandie Jay (9.900), a display of consistency they hadn’t shown in previous meets. Over on the beam, L.S.U. was faltering somewhat, but still cracking the 49 barrier with a 49.075, led by Rheagan Courville (9.875) and Jessie Jordan (9.850). L.S.U.’s Rheagan Courville and Jessie Jordan tied for the individual all-around title, each posting a 39.375.

Next up for the Gym Dogs is the University of Iowa, which comes to Athens in just three days (i.e., Monday, January 20th). That meeting kicks off at 2:00 PM Eastern Time in Stegeman Coliseum.

Stanford vs. Georgia
(Sunday, January 12, 2014)

Traveling to Stanford University for their second dual meet in a three-day stretch, the Gym Dogs were hungry for a victory. Unfortunately, Stanford came away on top, 196.325 to 196.150. Georgia won both vault and bars, but they lost both beam and floor, the latter being the event that did the Gym Dogs the most damage. On floor, the Gym Dogs could muster only a 48.675, while Stanford put together its best event score of the day, a 49.250. The Gym Dogs averaged just over 9.8 in their counting scores (9.8075), but they had 13 scores that fell below 9.8, nine of which had to count.

Looking on the positive side, Georgia had enough high scores and “almost” high scores (that fell short due to correctable mistakes) to indicate that the potential is there, even though Georgia is now 0-2 on the season. We cannot obsess too much about two losses. Coach Danna Durante’s philosophy appears to entail having the athletes perform new and/or difficult routines, recognizing that there almost inevitably will be major deductions when those routines are missed, but also believing that the percentages of missed routines will decrease as the season progresses. When the Gym Dogs compete against (say) Florida, Alabama, or Oklahoma in major championships, they will need to have routines capable of producing high scores; and they have to be able to hit them. The team has to practice doing what it will need later. We would expect to see Georgia’s team scores increase steadily as the season unfolds.

Regarding those high and “almost” high scores, Gym Dogs who scored 9.9 or above are Lindsey Cheek on vault; and Lindsey Cheek and Chelsea Davis on bars. Those who came just 0.025 away — “almost” high — were Mary Beth Box, Lindsey Cheek, and Kaylan Earls on beam.

Up next for the Gym Dogs is their home opener against fifth ranked L.S.U. on Friday, January 17, at 7:30 PM Eastern Time.

Oklahoma vs. Georgia
(Friday, January 10, 2014)

Oklahoma scored 49.475, 49.350, 49.375, and 49.500 on vault, bars, beam, and floor, respectively, for a final team score of 197.700. Georgia scored 49.250, 49.250, 48.975, and 49.025 for a final team score of 196.500. Georgia’s score certainly was not bad, especially for the first meet of the new season; however, Oklahoma was in very good form.

Georgia’s lineup consisted of four freshmen, who together accounted for 7 of 24 routines. Freshmen in their first collegiate meets are likely to be nervous and to make mistakes that they will correct as they get more experience. Still, Kiera Brown scored a 9.825 on bars; and Ashlyn Broussard scored a 9.850 on beam. All the other freshmen scores were in the 9.7’s.

The Gym Dogs now have to regroup for the Stanford University Cardinal, whom they will face in less than two days in Stanford, California (Sunday at 5:00 PM Eastern Time). So far this season, Stanford has competed only in a quad meet against Sacramento State, UC Davis, and San Jose State, which Stanford won with a team score of 194.825. The last time the Gym Dogs faced Stanford in Stanford’s Maples Pavilion, they eked out a 196.875 to 196.150 victory. Can they do it again? Go Gym Dogs!

An Early Look at the 2014 Gym Dogs
Sneak Peek
On Saturday, December 14, 2013, the Gym Dogs held their annual “Sneak Peek” at the Suzanne Yoculan Gymnastics Center. When people in the Athens area woke up that morning, it was unseasonably cold outside (temperature about 33°F), with brisk winds and heavy rain
(blowing sideways). In spite of the unpleasant weather that probably kept many
fans at home, however, the Gym Dogs looked surprisingly sharp, much sharper
than at this time last year. Six or seven team members performed on each
of the four events. Click on the photo above to watch a YouTube®
video that shows some of their performances.

National Ranking of Women’s Collegiate Gymnastics Teams

Rankings are calculated and presented on the website each Monday morning during the gymnastics season. The ranking criterion varies according to the following schedule:

  • January 13th through February 17th, 2014:  Ranking by season average through the previous Sunday (Team Ave);
  • February 24th until the NCAA tournaments: Ranking by Regional Qualifying Score calculated from meet results through the previous Sunday (Team RQS).

RQS’s on March 24th will determine which teams have qualified to take part in one of the six NCAA Regional competitions.

This season the NCAA Regionals will take place on April 5, 2014 at the University of Minnesota (Minneapolis, Minnesota), the University of Georgia (Athens, Georgia), the University of Arkansas (Fayetteville, Arkansas), Louisiana State University (Baton Rouge, Louisiana), Pennsylvania State University (State College, Pennsylvania), and the University of Washington (Seattle, Washington). Six teams are to take part in each NCAA Regional. The top 18 teams in the ranking of March 24, 2014 have guaranteed spots in one or another of the six NCAA Regionals.

The top two teams in each NCAA Regional will qualify for the National Championships, to be held April 18-20, 2014, in the Birmingham-Jefferson Convention Center in Birmingham, Alabama.
