The Utah gymnastics team has moved up to No. 1 in national rankings this week, just as they prepare to take on No. 4 Georgia on Friday at home.

The Utes are the nation’s top-ranked squad for the first time since February 2009. Utah leads the nation on beam and floor scores for the second straight week, and is third on the vault and seventh on bars.

Georgia Dabritz is the second-ranked competitor national on the floo, and Kailah Delaney is No. 4 on vault.

The Bulldogs will compete against Utah on Friday night at the Huntsman Center. The meet begins at 7 p.m.
