With the team finals now complete, three of Georgia's Gym Dogs will move on to compete in the individual NCAA finals today starting at 4:00 ADT at Pauley Pavillion in Los Angeles. (The qualification for the individual finals is based on a gymnast's score in the semifinal event, not the Super Six.)
Brandie Jay, Chelsea Davis, and Lindsey Cheek will all be competing on vault, and Chelsea will also be competing on bars.
It's kind of sad that none of our seniors were able to qualify for the individual finals, especially considering that Shayla Worley has been a strong beam specialist most of her career and Noel Couch was our strongest all-around gymnast for her first 3 years in Athens before her senior season was sabotaged by injury.
The silver lining, however, is that all of these three individual competitors will be back for Danna's Dawgs next year, and will be able to build on the experience they will get from this competition. And hopefully they might be able to bring home an individual national title, too!
UGA will not be providing a live audio broadcast of the individual finals, though they will be doing a highlights show after the fact. The event will be broadcast live at ESPN3.com, however.
I might not be here to comment during the meet, but feel free to use this as your open comment thread if you're following along on ESPN3.
