Utah gymnastics team beats Stanford as junior earns a 10.0 on floor

Utah's gymnastics team wasn't sure how much depth it would have this year, obviously it has found what it needed in the floor lineup.

Utah's Lia Del Priore earned a 10.0 Saturday to help Utah beat Stanford 197.3-197.075. The mark came even though she was just the second to compete in the lineup.

"I'm still in shock," Del Priore said. "I didn't think it actually happened. I didn't even get to look around. I was in complete shock."

In the end the high mark was needed too since Stanford competed unfazed by the loud atmosphere on the balance beam. The Cardinal, ranked fourth on the event, posted a 49.475 with three scores of 9.9 or higher to nearly upset the Utes.

Utah posted a 49.525 on the floor.

"I give Stanford a lot of credit," Utah coach Greg Marsden said. "To be on the road in this arena and with this crowd and almost knock it out of the park on beam was impressive."

The Utes were pleased with their effort, outside of some continuing issues on the balance beam. Those need to be worked out before Utah competes in the Pac-12 Championships March 23.

"We are beating ourselves there," Marsden said. "This week we had two spectacular training days on the beam and we come in here tonight and get tentative and have balance checks throughout. We have to do better at presenting on that event."
