Georgia has hosted the NCAA Championships four times. The Utes won it in Athens in 1995 and finished fifth there in 1989 and 2001.

A new record

Utah's Ashley Postell finishes her career with an NCAA-record 20 All-American awards, the most a gymnast can win. Of those, 17 were first-team honors. The previous record was 18 set by Alabama's Jeana Rice (2001-04).

Now tied . . . or still leading?

The title was Georgia's ninth national title, tying the Utes for the most NCAA titles. Utah has 10 national titles, including the 1981 AIAW championship.
