Tempe, Ariz. • With freshman Georgia Dabritz struggling and senior Stephanie McAllister suffering a rare fall on the floor, Utah sophomore Corrie Lothrop knew she had to carry Utah's gymnastics team Sunday.
She delivered, winning three events to pace the Utes in their 196.15-194.0 win over Arizona State.
Lothrop won the all-around with a 39.4 and won the floor and balance beam with 9.9s.
Lothrop has nine wins for the season and won the same events she did a week ago when Utah beat Georgia.
"I was right in between Stephanie and Georgia when they fell," said Lothrop, referring to the Utes' disappointing floor effort. "We know we have to work on things and do better."
It was hard for Lothrop to do much better than she did Sunday. She also had a 9.825 on the uneven bars and a 9.775 as the leadoff on the vault.
Lothrop leads the Utes, hitting 20 of 20 routines on the season.
"She has been very consistent for us," Utah coach Greg Marsden said.
That Dabritz struggled wasn't too much of a surprise to the Utes since the freshman has been sick this week. Marsden said that in hindsight, he should have pulled her from the lineup.
"That was my mistake," he said. "She looked OK in warmups, but you could see when she was out there she wasn't quite herself."
The Utes juggled their lineup a bit, with Lothrop replacing Tory Wilson as the leadoff on the vault. Wilson, moved deeper in the lineup because she has been vaulting well, earned a 9.875 in the third slot.
On floor, freshman Kailah Delaney replaced Nansy Damianova.
Damianova was the 2011 regional co-champion on the floor and has scored 9.8 or higher on the event in every meet this year, but the Utes felt Delaney has had a better week of practice.
Delaney earned a 9.7.
Utah's win was its 10th straight over the Sun Devils. â¦ Sophomore Mary Beth Lofgren tied her season high with a 9.85 on the balance beam. â¦ The Utes are 13-8-1 in Tempe.
