Season in review
Best moment » The Utes avenged an earlier loss to Nebraska and won the regional title.
Worst moment » All the Utes needed to do to win the Pac-12 championship was hit their beam routines; instead, they had two falls and finished second.
Key loss » The Utes graduate all-arounder Stephanie McAllister, who was not only a top performer, but also a team leader.
Key returner » Sophomore Corrie Lothrop, who earned All-American honors on the vault, all-around and bars, returns and could be a contender for the NCAA all-around title.
Key addition » The Utes signed Breanne Hughes, a three-time Junior Olympics runner-up on the uneven bars.
