The Utah gymnastics team compiled a 3.38 GPA for the fall semester and placed five members on the Dean's List with a 3.5 or better. Senior Dominique D'Oliveira earned a perfect 4.0. Also making the Dean's List were Kristina Baskett, Gritt Hofmann, Nina Kim and Beth Rizzo. Eleven gymnasts received a 3.0 or better to make the Athletic Director's Honor Roll.
