Utah Gymnastics team “The Red Rocks” joined in the early hours of GTU to discuss how the team’s season has gone. The University of Utah women’s gymnastics team, also known as the Red Rocks, competes in the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division I and is a member of the Pac-12 conference.

Flexibility, core strength, balance, upper and lower body strength, power, mental focus and discipline are all required in gymnastics. It also requires a high level of commitment. This group worked hard to achieve greatness and succeeded.

The team made an appearance in its 46th consecutive national championship, making it the only program in the United States to have appeared in every national championship. The team finished third in the NCAA for the second straight year.

The Red Rocks also won the third consecutive Pac-12 regular season championship. Player Jaedyn Rucker became NCAA vault champion and is the fifth Ute to win a national vault title. Player Maile O’Keefe was named Pac-12 Specialist of the Year and holds the program record.

Utah has three Olympians on the team – Team USA silver medalist Grace McCallum, Team USA alternate Kara Eaker and Team UK bronze medalist Amelie Morgan.

Former captain Sydney Sokoski shared that every national championship team has their own take on bullying. The Red Rocks team remains focused during competitions.

“Over time, it’s a culture, and Utah’s gym culture is what’s kept us on top for so long,” Sokoski said.
