Florida and Oklahoma Tie for 2014 Women's Team Title

Written by Greg

In a thrilling finale, UF and OU tied for the 2014 NCAA Team Title.

Session 2: Florida, Bama, NU Advance

Written by Greg

Florida and Bama tied for the 2nd session title and advanced to the Super Six to face OU, UGA and LSU.  Both squads wavered but never counted a fall.  Florida blasted to a 49.55 on UB while Bama tumbled to a 49.575 on FX.  Neither squad finished below a 49.3.

NU capitalized on shakiness from UCLA and Utah on BB to advance.  NU did so by absolutely nailing beam with the highest team total of the day, and advanced four Huskers to the finals.  Beam wins Championships, or in this case, Super Six slots.

1 Alabama 197.650
1 Florida 197.650
3 Nebraska 197.100
4 Utah 197.025
5 UCLA 197.000

Florida, Sloan Seeks to Defend Title

Written by Greg

Florida seeks to defend its National Championships this weekend.  However, the Gators will have to contend with the likes of host Bama and upstarts LSU and OU, along with eight other squads, including former champions UCLA, UGA and Utah.  

To contend for the Super Six, the teams will first have to qualify.  This is not a guarantee for any squad, especially in the tough evening session.  Teams that have struggled during the season always seem to peak for the Big Dance, and the added pressure of the National spotlight can cause others to falter.

Defending AA champ Bridget Sloan of Florida will seek to defend her title against a host of challengers.  How does the race stack up?
