Utah's gymnastics team dominated the Pac-12 all-academic gymnastics team that was released Monday with seven of the 12 first-team selections being Utes.
Georgia Dabritz (3.77), Kailah Delaney (3.86), Lia Del Priore (3.74), Hailee Hansen (3.96), Breanna Hughes (3.98), Mary Beth Lofgren (3.88) and Becky Tutka (3.81) represented the Utes on the first team.
Nansy Damianova (3.61), Corrie Lothrop (3.62) and Tory Wilson (3.66) were on the second team.
To be eligible, a student-athlete must have a minimum 3.0 overall GPA and be either a starter or significant contributor.
The Utes, who won the Pac-12 title, compete in the NCAA Championships starting Friday in Birmingham, Ala.
Utah hasn't won an NCAA title since 1995 but feels it has one of its best teams in many years.
"All season we have been staying in our zone," Dabritz said. "We are confident."
