Heading into the individual events portion of the NCAA gymnastics national championships, eyes were on Utah’s Georgia Dabritz on the uneven bars. This was the senior's from Newburyport, Massachusetts, last chance to win a national title in the event she had dominated throughout her career. She had come close to capturing the title in the past, finishing as runner up in 2013, but the title continued to elude her. Now a senior in the final competition of her collegiate career, this was her moment.
It looked like fate might have other plans for Dabritz as during a practice session when the bars splintered, leaving fiberglass slivers in Dabritz hands. The bars were repaired prior to the competition, however, and despite a pair of beaten up hands, Dabritz showed no worse for the wear.
For Dabritz it was the culmination of a career in which she will go down as one of the best gymnasts in Utah history. She finishes as an eight time NCAA Regional champion, six-time Pac-12 champion, two-time Utah co-MVP and 3 time Pac-12 all academic.
