Not only do the Utah Red Rocks gymnasts get it done on the competition floor (they claimed their third Pac-12 Championship in the last four years), they also get it done in the classroom with eight Red Rocks earning Scholastic All-American honors from the National Association of Gymnastics Coaches (NACGC). The team as a whole had the highest cumulative GPA of any Utah sports team with a 3.676. These girls also tend to take very challenging majors all the while competing at an incredibly high level. Tiffani Lewis and Maddy Stover, both juniors, have earned NAGCG Scholastic All-American honors in all three years at Utah. Sophomores Shannon McNatt and Sabrina Schwab both had 4.00s and are Scholastic All-Americans for the second time. Utah’s freshman class of Missy Reinstadtler, MyKayla Skinner and Kim Tessen were also on the team. Skinner was the NCAA floor champion in her first year at Utah.
