A Georgia Update
After much delay, UGA has posted highlights from their Sneak-A-Peak. Notice how much of a 2:42 highlight reel is taken up by shots of the team cheering. That is not a promising sign. Given the delay, one must wonder if they've spent substantial time editing this to make them appear in the best possible light.
Gina Nuccio and Kat Ding were absent from the intrasquad on vault and floor and both are questionable at best for Saturday. If Kat does compete, it will only be on bars.
Only one more year of watching Hilary Mauro do that series and that vault, phew. That series is quite a leap for her and certainly interesting technique. Mauro and McComb look like the stars of this season (along with the few appearances Shayla Worley will grace us with.)
Get ready to see a LOT of Noel Couch this season. There is no way around that.
Substantial time was also spent showing Kaylan Earls, who is injured and out for the year.
Lindsey Cheek is supposed to compete three events for the Gym Dogs on Saturday. While Lindsey has a decent Yurchenko Full, let's take a look at her gymnastics to show just how in danger the team may be of losing to Denver.
