Utah gymnastics: Wilson, others have shot at individual titles
Gym notes » Utah coach doesn’t want athletes to put too much focus on that.

< Previous Page

Since falling off the beam against Washington on Feb. 28, Hughes has earned 9.8 or higher in the following three meets.

"I think the low point for us was against Stanford when we had falls, and we have been climbing up from there ever since," Utah beam coach Megan Marsden said. "They’ve been hitting in practice and their mental outlook is good so I’m confident in them."

Up and over

The Utes spent most of Thursday’s practice session getting accustomed to the equipment and being on the podium, where the equipment is placed on a flooring that is several feet off the floor. The setup is similar to what is used at the Olympics and other international competitions, but it was still new to some of the gymnasts.

Wilson said the equipment felt good — even the balance beam, which the Utes thought might be wobbly due to the podium setup.

"I liked it and the floor had a lot of spring to it," she said. "We are ready for tomorrow."
