Perhaps the biggest shocker was Florida’s Bridget Sloan, the defending balance beam and all-around champion. Sloan, one of the sport’s most decorated gymnasts, fell off the balance beam and scored just 9.2. The mistake didn’t cost the Gators as they advanced to the Super Six, but it did cost Sloan a chance at more individual titles since only the top four gymnasts from each session on eac...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

But a few must put aside the hurt do their best to salvage the NCAAs for the Utes in the NCAA Individual Championships on Sunday here at the Birmingham Convention Complex. Utah’s Georgia Dabritz qualified on the vault with a 9.925 and Becky Tutka and Nansy Damianova made the cut for floor finals by scoring 9.925.

It is the elusive, hard to grasp ingredient that can make or break a team. But how do teams get it and what helps it grow? The answer to that question is as intangible as the thought of team chemistry itself. It’s virtually impossible to measure the impact of a concept based on emotions, although some are trying.

Nor, probably, more excited about the chances of winning another national title since the Tide will be competing in a familiar setting.

It was an experience many young talented gymnasts would love to have. But even better than the memories was the would-be souvenir she received. At just 13 years old, Marlowe Clausi was offered a scholarship to Utah.

Dabritz normally competes in three events because she has been inconsistent on the balance beam, but it looks as if the junior finally is getting a better handle on that event and has earned a spot in the lineup the last two weeks. She scored a 9.675 against Stanford then earned a 9.875 in Saturday’s win.
