Yoculan Goes Out on Top

From UGA Athletics...

The No. 1-ranked Georgia gymnastics team won the program's 10th national title, including its fifth in a row, to send Coach Suzanne Yoculan into retirement as a champion once again.

The Gym Dogs scored a 197.825, their second-best score of the year, to win the championship.

Georgia opened on bars, scoring a 49.425 led by Courtney Kupets' 10.0. Tiffany Taylor posted a 9.9, followed by Grace Taylor and Gina Nuccio each with a 9.85 and Kathryn Ding with a 9.825.

The Gym Dogs posted a 49.2 on beam as Kupets earned a 9.95 and Courtney McCool scored a 9.9. Georgia also counted a 9.875 from Tolnay, a 9.775 from Taylor and a 9.7 from Hilary Mauro.

Georgia came out of its first bye on fire, scoring a 49.575 on floor. After Abby Stack, Mauro, McComb and Taylor got 9.9s to open for the Gym Dogs, Kupets went 9.95 and Tolnay went 9.925.

Ending on vault, the Gym Dogs recorded a season-high 49.625. Kupets nailed the 10.0, while Ding and Tolnay each had a 9.95, Newby scored a 9.875 and McComb added a 9.85.

No surprise here. She's built one helluva program and will be missed.

Congrats to the team and the coaches!

Did we use a search firm to hire her?

If ever there was one, she is a Damn Fine Dawg!
