Utah Gymnastics Claims Many All-Pac-12 Honors

Deena Lofgren

The No. 5 Utah Red Rocks placed eight gymnasts on the all conference team, which was the most for any team in the conference. Utah had five gymnasts make the first team All-Pac-12, led by senior Breanna Hughes (all-around). Also on the first team were senior Kailah Delaney (vault), senior Kassandra Lopez (bars), junior Baely Rowe (bars), and sophomore Maddy Stover (beam). On the second team All-Pac-12 were sophomore Tiffani Lewis (vault and floor), sophomore Samantha Partyka (vault) and freshman Sabrina Schwab (floor).

According to the press release:

The all-conference team is based on regional qualifying score (RQS). A gymnast who makes the all-conference team in the all-around is not eligible for individual event honors and a gymnast who makes the first team on one event is not eligible for second-team honors on another.

Delaney became the first Utah gymnast to make first-team All-Pac-12 on vault four times. Hughes ranks second in the Pac-12 and No. 7 overall in the nation in the all-around (39.540 RQS). Hughes was named the Pac-12 Scholar-Athlete of the year. Schwab was voted the Pac-12 Freshman of the Year. Lopez was named the Pac-12 Specialist of the Year. Hughes (all-around and vault), Lewis (floor), and Rowe (beam) were also Pac-12 individual event champions.
