We still have quite some time before we become fully ensnared by anticipation for the NCAA season, but we need this right now. So in case you hadn’t heard, late August is already upon us. The actual meets may still be more than four months away, but mandatory-bonding-exercises season is ALIVE AND WELL. And isn’t that what we’re really here for? (It isn’t.)
Late August also means that we’re right in the midst of roster-reveal season. This will happen in stages and incompletely—some schools won’t actually know their rosters until the season is almost over (barely kidding), some freshmen won’t arrive until January and will be badly kept secrets until then, some walk-ons will disappear in about 2.5 months—but we do already have some complete rosters to inspect. I’ll note all newcomers, as well as any early or unexpected departures and any applicable coaching changes.
Added signed freshmen Olivia Trautman and Allie Stern and walk-on Emma LaPinta.
Added sophomore transfer Karrie Thomas from Maryland. Last season, Thomas had a floor RQS of 9.850 and a bars RQS of 9.820.
Added signed freshmen Trinity Thomas, Sydney Johnson-Scarpf, Leah Clapper, Savannah Schoenherr, and Nya Reed, and walk-on Halley Taylor.
Francesca Lawal is no longer on the roster.
Added freshman walk-on Rebecca D’Antonio. (Bailey Ferrer is slated to be a January addition.)
Gracen Standley is no longer on the roster. Standley did not compete in 2018.
Added signed freshmen Hunter Dula, Cammy Hall, Cristal Isa, and Adrienne Randall.
Erika Muhaw is no longer on the roster, having graduated in three years—so she was technically a senior last season even though it was only her third year at Utah. Continue reading NCAA Roster Reveals
