THE 2019 STORY
It’s Oklahoma’s world. The most successful team of the decade won its fourth national title last season after spending the whole year atop the rankings—and making history by setting the mark for highest road score ever in college gymnastics. So…um…the 2019 story was good? It went well, you guys.

THE 2019 STORY
There’s no “oh, the positives they can take from this are…” for Florida’s 2019 finish. This is a team that expects to challenge for national championships, if not win them, and should have made it to the final last season after spending the entire year in the 2-4 zone. Elimination at regionals for 10th place—the team’s weakest finish in 17 years—is just a loss and a disappointment.

THE 2019 STORY
Kentucky ultimately fulfilled the prophecy of last year’s epic senior class, following 2018’s record 12th-place result with a new record 9th-place result, finishing the season ranked as the top team to miss out on advancing to nationals. Kentucky spent the serious part of the season ranked in the 9-12 zone, so the finish is largely an accurate representation of how the season went, even if it will have been disappointing to come that close to making nationals and then miss out despite the 197.600 (for 4th place) in the Georgia regional final.
