In a thrilling finish, Utah held onto a lead in the final round to win the Salt Lake City Regional and win a spot at Nationals. The other three squads were neck and neck heading into the final round, with Kentucky just 0.025 ahead of LSU, and 0.175 ahead of ASU. ASU finished first with a 49.525 on UB, while Kentucky had a few problems early in their FX lineup. LSU proceeded to hit their opening BB routines, but a fall in the fifth spot put the pressure on anchor Raegan Campbell to deliver and secure the second spot at Nationals, which she did.
Maile O'Keefe led Utah with a tie for first on three events. She tied on UB with ASU's Cairo Leonard Baker and UK's Raina Worley. O'Keefe also tied for 1st on BB with teammates Cristal Isa and Abby Paulson, Worley and UK's Josie Angeny plus LSU's Sami Durante. On FX, O'Keefe tied with teammate Sydney Soloski and LSU's Kiya Johnson. On VT, LSU's Haleigh Bryant won with a 10.
