Head Coach • 20th Season North Miami Beach, Fla. Florida (1993), Wayne State (1996)

Melissa Kutcher-Rinehart enters her 20th season at the helm of the University of Denver gymnastics program in 2018. Since arriving in 1999, Kutcher-Rinehart has led Denver to 19-consecutive appearances at NCAA Regionals and four NCAA Nationals team berths. Kutcher-Rinehart’s teams made program history with back-to-back appearances at the NCAA National Championships in 2007 and 2008. In her career, Kutcher-Rinehart has had at least one individual qualify for NCAA Nationals in 18 consecutive years--including the program’s firstever NCAA individual national champion: Nina McGee on floor exericse in 2016. Since Kutcher-Rinehart became head coach, the Pioneers have finished the season in the top 25 every season, including eight seasons in the top 15. Under her tutelage, the Pioneers

have broken the team scoring record on every event - including highest team total of 197.875 on February 14, 2004 and each of the top 10 scores in school history have come under her watch. Denver’s 2017 season was arguably the most successful season in program history. The Pioneers returned to the NCAA National Championships, finishing a program-record ninth overall. For the first time in program history, DU had multiple Division I postseason All-Americans in the same season with senior Julia Ross and freshman Maddie Karr. Four of the team’s top-10 team scores came during the 2017 season, and DU broke the school record on bars (49.450) on the road at Boise State on March 10. Other program records to fall were highest RQS (197.040) and weeks spent ranked in the top 10 in the nation (9). Kutcher-Rinehart was recognized for her accomplishments when she was voted at the Big 12 co-Coach of the Year and the North Central Regional Head Coach of the Year. The highly successful 2016 season was punctuated by senior Nina McGee’s NCAA floor title - the first in school history. Additional school records fell in 2016 under Kutcher-Rinehart’s leadership. The Pioneers spent back-to-back weeks ranked No. 10 in the nation for the first time ever in an RQS poll and finished with an RQS of 196.725, then the second-highest in program history. For only the second season, Denver had more than two team scores of 197 or higher, including the program’s second-highest team score (197.525). In 2016, DU became an affiliate member of the Big 12 Conference, a transition in which Kutcher-Rinehart was instrumental. DU made it to straight years without counting a fall toward the final team score in any meet in 2016. The 2015 Pioneers finished the season ranked No. 15 in the nation, the team’s highest final ranking since 2010. Kutcher-Rinehart’s streak of having at least one gymnast qualify to NCAA Nationals continued as Nina McGee competed in the all-around, finishing 11th overall. McGee qualified to event finals and tied for second on floor, equaling the best finish for a Pioneer at the Division I NCAA National Championships through the 2015 season.

During the 2014 season, Kutcher-Rinehart’s Pioneers finished the season ranked No. 18 in the nation after posting the team’s third highest RQS in history with a 196.205. The team finished tied for 14th in the nation on beam, a team best, as well as in the top 25 on all events. She led DU to the Mountain Rim Gymnastics Conference title where the Pioneers set a school record on vault with a 49.475. Earlier in the season, the team tied the sixth-highest score on floor (49.475 on March 15) and the seventh-highest bars score (49.300 on January 31). For the 15th consecutive season, Kutcher-Rinehart’s team sent at least one individual to Nationals where Moriah Martin competed for a thirdstraight year, finishing seventh in the all-around in the semifinals and earning Second-Team All-American honors. The Pioneers finished the 2014 season a perfect 6-0 at home and only counted one fall for the entire season. In 2013, Kutcher-Rinehart led the Pioneers to finish the regular season with the 15th-best Regional Qualifying Score in the nation, thanks to a 196.470 mark, the highest RQS in program history. The team finished No. 20 team in the nation with a 391.745 National Qualifying Score. The Pioneers consistently ranked in the top 20, being ranked as high as No. 12 during the season. In Denver’s opener, Kutcher-Rinehart notched her 250th victory as the Pioneers head coach. Kutcher-Rinehart led the program to its 15th NCAA Regional in her 15 seasons as a Pioneer. Junior Moriah Martin advanced to the NCAA Semifinals for the second-consecutive season and eventually becoming Denver’s fifth postseason All-American.

HEAD COACH MELISSA KUTCHER-RINEHART The 14-woman squad in 2012 turned in the second-highest Regional Qualifying Score in school history (196.090) to finish the regular season ranked 14th, tying the program’s thirdhighest mark since the GymInfo Poll began in 1997. Sophomore Moriah Martin extended the Pioneers streak of sending at least one individual to Nationals, tallying a 39.200 in the all-around at the Champaign Regional to punch her ticket to the NCAA Semifinals in Duluth, Ga. KutcherRinehart led the Pioneers to the University’s first Western Athletic Conference Championship, after posting a 196.350 at the event. In 2011, the Pioneers hosted the NCAA North Central Regional Championships for the first time since 2007, playing host to Arkansas, Florida, Boise State, Arizona and BYU. Junior Brianna Springer recorded a score of 38.250 in the all-around competition to secure her secondstraight trip to the NCAA Championships, while freshman Jorie Hall scored a career-best 9.900 on the balance beam which allowed her to make her first appearance at the National meet. At the NCAA Semifinals, Springer finished 17th overall in the all-around, and Hall finished 35th on the balance beam. The Pioneers finished fourth as a team at the Regional Championships, and claimed victories over No. 16 Ohio State, No. 10 Nebraska, and No. 12 Arkansas earlier in the season. In 2010, Kutcher-Rinehart and the Pioneers posted a season-high 196.175 in the NCAA North Central Regional Championships to finish in third place. Senior Kelley Hennigan and Springer represented the Pioneers at the NCAA Championships as individual all-around qualifiers. Springer and Hennigan placed 11th and 20th in the all-around, respectively, in Session II. DU also recorded a 49.325 on beam at Air Force on March 22, the second-highest beam score in team history. In 2009, the Pioneers had two individual all-around qualifiers in the NCAA National Championships in Hennigan and senior Jessica López. López, who was the North Central Regional champion, finished sixth on vault in the NCAA Event Finals. Lopez earned All-American honors for her performance. The 2008 season saw Kutcher-Rinehart lead the Pioneers to a second-consecutive berth to the NCAA Championships. Needing to answer her critics that DU could not sustain its success, her team edged host Penn State in the final rotation of the meet at the Northeast Regional Championships and went on to a 12th place finish at Nationals. In 2007, and following six-consecutive years of near misses, DU finally returned to Nationals for the first time since 2001 and Kutcher-Rinehart helped López become the first three-time Division I All-America gymnast in school history. The Pioneers finished in fifth place in Session II of the NCAA Semifinals and 10th overall, the best finish in school history. DU scored a 195.575,

behind host Utah (197.325), Stanford (197.200), UCLA (196.475), LSU (196.275), and in front of Michigan (195.100). López finished tied for first on uneven bars to become a first-team All-American, DU’s firstever on uneven bars, and finished tied for fifth on uneven bars with a 9.9 and tied for third with a 9.85 on floor exercise. She competed in the NCAA Event Finals, finishing 15th on beam and 16th on floor. DU made it to the NCAA Championships thanks to its second place finish at the NCAA North Central Regional Championships in front of 3,876 fans in Magness Arena, the third time DU hosted on its home floor. Kutcher-Rinehart was honored as the North Central Region Coach of the Year. In 2005, the Pioneers finished with their highest ranking since 2002 and recorded a schoolrecord seven-meet winning streak in which the team went 11-0. DU also upset No. 12 Arizona State on Senior Night and went 20-8 overall, matching the 2000 team’s win total. The Pioneers finished fourth at the North Central Region Championships and finished the season ranked No. 16 thanks to their 195.250 RQS, the fourthbest score among non-advancing teams. Up until 2007, the 2001 season stood as KutcherRinehart’s shining moment at Denver, as she led the Pioneers to their first-ever appearance at the NCAA Division I Championships, becoming the first small private school in NCAA history to qualify. The Pioneers earned their first-ever berth by virtue of their second-place finish at the NCAA North Central Region Championships, nearly pulling off an unthinkable upset of a Utah team that, at that time, had not lost on its home floor since 1979. Though the Pioneers finished 12th in their firstever trip to nationals, Kutcher-Rinehart coached her second-consecutive individual All-American in Ashley Shible, who just missed becoming Kutcher-Rinehart’s first individual athlete to qualify for an event final.

August 17, 1998. She came to Denver from the University of Michigan, where she was an assistant for five seasons. During her tenure at Michigan, the Wolverines won four consecutive Big Ten Conference championships (1994-97) and placed as high as second at the NCAA National Championships (1995). In 1997, Kutcher-Rinehart was a key component in Michigan putting out its then best-ever balance beam performance at the NCAA Championships with three gymnasts earning First-Team All-America honors. Kutcher-Rinehart was a two-time recipient of the University of Michigan’s Louise Cooley Sutherland award as the top women’s assistant coach. She is active as a member of the National Association of Collegiate Gymnastics Coaches for Women (NACGC/W) and has previously served as the awards chairperson for the organization. In addition, she has served as a member of the NCAA Gymnastics Committee. An all-around competitor with the University of Florida women’s gymnastics squad from 198992, Kutcher-Rinehart helped the Gators to four straight top-12 NCAA Championship finishes. The Gators’ best national finish during her career was sixth in 1991. A native of North Miami Beach, Fla., KutcherRinehart holds a bachelor’s degree in communications from Florida (1993), and earned a master’s degree in athletic administration from Wayne State University in Detroit, Mich. (1996). She is a professional member of USA Gymnastics. Kutcher-Rinehart is married to Todd Rinehart, Vice Chancellor for Enrollment Management at DU. The couple has two children, William and Ella. The family resides in Aurora, Colo.

In 2000, her second season at DU, Kutcher-Rinehart had three all-around performers qualify for the national meet and coached her first All-American, as Jenny Ebdon earned second-team honors on the floor exercise at the NCAA Championships. In her first season with the Pioneers, Kutcher-Rinehart led Denver to a No. 16 ranking and a fourth-place finish at the 1999 NCAA Region 2 Gymnastics Championships, at the time, the highest finish at a Division I postseason competition. For her efforts, she was named Region 2 Coach of the Year in her first season as a head coach. Kutcher-Rinehart was named the program’s fourth head coach on

DU returns nine student-athletes from its 2017 team and will welcome three freshmen. SENIORS The Denver senior class brings experience and perserverence to the 2018 team. Nikole Addison will look to contribute on three or four events in every meet, building off of her 2017 campaign that saw her narrowly miss a regular-season AllAmerican nod on floor. She had the team’s second-highest floor average on floor and finished with the team’s highest RQS on the event with eight scores of 9.900 or higher including a career-high 9.950. Claire Hammen missed much of the 2017 season due to injury, returning to the floor line-up for the final three meets of the season. She will look to add depth to the Pioneers’ floor rotation while returning on vault and beam. In 2016, she appeared on beam and floor in all but one meet. Leah Lomonte returns for a fifth and final year of NCAA eligibility as a bars specialist. In 2017, she competed on bars in every meet, setting a new personal best of 9.900. JUNIORS Denver’s junior class is its largest and will add depth on all four events for the Pioneers in 2018. Kaitlyn Schou had a breakout season in 2017, earning career highs on all three of

Senior Nikole Addison

her events: 9.850 on vault, 9.900 on beam and 9.900 on floor. She competed on all three events in every meet, contributing every score to the team total. Her 9.856 average score on beam was virtually tied for the highest on the team, and she had the third-best average on floor.

Maddie Karr returns after one of the program’s most successful freshman campaigns, highlighted by her three postseason All-American honors and a perfect 10.0 on vault. She holds the fourthhighest all-around mark in program history (39.675) and has already amassed 23 titles across all five individual events. The North Central Region Gymnast of the Year will look to continue her success in the allaround in 2018. Courtney Loper was instrumental in DU’s beam and floor line-ups in 2017, competing on floor in every meet and on beam in 10 meets. She hit every routine except for

Claire Kern competed on bars in every meet last season while working her way back from an injury. She was one of the team’s most consistent bars workers, hitting 14 of 15 routines and helping the team break the school record (49.450) on the road on March 10. At the end of the season, she made her first career appearances on floor and will look to expand her event appearances in 2018. Diana Chesnok missed the start of the 2016 season with an injury but made an impact upon returning. She finished the season with DU’s top average score on bars (9.868) bolstered by three career-high marks of 9.925. She made additional appearance on vault and will seek to add appearances on beam as well in 2018. Grace Broadhurst missed the entire 2017

DU will compete at the Big 12 Championship hosted by Iowa State. This is Denver’s third season as an affiliate member of the conference.

Mia Sundstrom, too, is out of Colorado’s Airborne Gymnastics. She qualified twice to JO Nationals and is a two-time runner-up in the all-around at the Region 3 Championships. She also has two event titles from Regionals. Like Brown and Glynn, she is expected to compete in the all-around and brings beautiful lines to her gymnastics. PRESEASON COACHES’ POLL Denver came in at No. 8 in the Preseason Coaches Poll, which is the highest preseason ranking in program history. DU’s previous highest preseason ranking came before the 2001 season when the Pioneers were No. 13. In 2018, DU will compete against 11 teams in the top 36, including six in the top 25. The Pioneers face No. 1 Oklahoma, No. 7 Michigan, No. 13 Boise State and No. 19 Arkansas on the road. Making the trip to Denver will be No. 21 George Washington

On the schedule is twotime reigning NCAA National Champion Oklahoma, as well as a meet against fellow 2017 NCAA National Championships qualifier Michigan.

NCAA Regionals meets will be held on April 7. The six host schools in 2018 will be Alabama, Minnesota, North Carolina State, Ohio State, Penn State and Utah. The 2018 gymnastics season will conclude at the NCAA National Championships in St. Louis, Mo., on April 20-21, 2018.

After opening the season on the road for a quad meet at Arizona, DU hosts its home opener in Magness Arena against Air Force. January concludes with a trip to Boise State for another quad meet before the Pioneers return to Denver to close out the month against Utah State. DU opens up February with two home meets to start, the first a quad meet with BYU, Bowling Green and Ball State. Denver then welcomes fellow Big 12 Conference team West Virginia and George

2017 YEAR IN REVIEW Despite a season of injuries, the 2017 University of Denver women’s gymnastics team cemented itself in the record books with arguably the program’s best season yet. The Pioneers set rankings and score records throughout the season, and capped it off with the program’s fourth trip to the NCAA National Championships where they set even more records.

also finished the year ranked inside the top 25 on all four events: No. 7 on vault (a new program record), No. 8 on bars (a new program record), No. 10 on beam and No. 16 on floor.

individual titles. Ross led the way with her second-career all-around title as well as a win on beam and a share of the title on bars. Karr took home the vault title. Ogden also shared the bars title while Addison tied for the win on floor.

DU started the season with record-setting performances from its freshmen in the season opener. Maddie Karr won the all-around title in her collegiate debut with a record high score for a DU freshman in her first meet (39.500). Her marks on vault (9.925) and beam (9.875) were also new program highs for a DU freshman’s first meet. Fellow freshman Sam Ogden posted the third-highest score by a DU gymnast in her debut on bars (9.850). In Denver’s home opener, the Pioneers swept the event titles and earned at least a share of the top-three finishes on all four events and in the all-around. Karr took home the win in the all-around and was followed by junior Nikole Addison and senior Julia Ross. A top-10 match up at No. 5 Utah in mid-January resulted in what was then the Pioneers’ fifth-highest road score in program history (196.875). DU hit every routine on all four events including with only five competitors on vault and floor.

DU spent the majority of the season competing five-up, five-count on both vault and floor. The Pioneers excelled under the added pressure, spending a program-record nine weeks inside the top 10 in the nation and never being ranked below No. 12. After the team’s appearance at Nationals, DU finished the season ranked No. 9 in the country, the highest the program had ever been in the final national rankings.

FIGHTING BACK IN FEBRUARY

Denver’s depleted depth on vault and floor caught up to the team in its first meet in February during a trip to defending NCAA National Champion Oklahoma where the Pioneers would finish second out of four teams. Karr and Ross finished 2-3 in the all-around. The Pioneers bounced back three days later to close out their four-meet road trip with a visit to Southern Utah, posting what was the second-highest away score of the season. For the second straight meet, Karr and Ross took second and third, respectively, in the all-around. Sophomore Kaitlyn Schou had a break out meet with a career high of 9.900 on floor and a team-leading 9.850 on beam.

Four of the program’s top-10 team scores were set in 2017, as were five on bars-including a new program record--and five on beam. The Pioneers set new program records for the top two highest attended home meets (4,543 and 4,183) and for average home meet attendance (3,045). For the fifth consecutive season, Denver

score in program history. On bars, the Pioneers tied what was then the school record on bars with a 49.400. Karr’s 39.675 in the all-around became the fourth-highest score in team history in a meet where she would win a share of the all-around, vault, beam and floor titles.

The 2017 season marked Denver’s second as an affiliate member of the Big 12 Conference. DU finished second at the Big 12 Championship with a 196.475. Karr and Ross finished 2-3 in the allaround to secure spots on the Big 12 Championship Team, and Ross added another with a third-place finish on beam. After the meet, head coach Melissa Kutcher-Rinehart was announced as coCoach of the Year.

One week later in front of a sold-out crowd, Karr stuck her Yurchenko 1.5 on vault to earn a perfect 10.0 from the judges to help the Pioneers to a 197.150 overall, which would become the sixth-best mark in team history. At the same meet, Ross set a new career high (39.475) in winning the all-around title. DU’s busy February concluded with two meets in three days, the first a 196.900 win at Ohio State, which overtook the team’s mark at Utah in January as the program’s fifth highest road score. Karr and Ross finished 1-2 in the all-around while the Pioneers earned at least a share of all four event titles: Karr on vault, Ogden on bars, Karr and Schou on beam, Addison on floor.

Kutcher-Rinehart continued her streak of qualifying the Pioneers to NCAA Regionals in each of her 19 seasons. The Pioneers entered the Fayetteville Regional as a No. 2 seed and ranked No. 9 in the nation. In the final rotation, five of the six teams—including Denver—were in the running for the two NCAA Nationals berths.

Freshman Courtney Loper

Chesnok’s win on bars completed DU’s sweep of the event titles.

MAKING A MARK IN MARCH

In their final home meet of the season, Karr and Ross again finished 1-2 in the all-around as the Pioneers tallied a 197.150 to again tie the sixth-best score in program history. Four Pioneers combined to win the event titles: Karr on vault, Chesnok on bars, Ross on beam and Addison on floor.

DU clinched its trip to Nationals with one of its strongest floor performances of the season, finishing second overall—and only one tenth out of first place—with a final team score of 197.050, which was nearly a full point higher than the program’s previous record for highest Regionals score. It was also the seventhhighest score in the nation at Regionals.

DU kept the momentum going when it closed out the regular season in a top-10 match up at Boise State. The bars squad broke the school record with a 49.450, leading Denver to the second-highest road score in program history—197.150, the third time the team achieved the mark in 2017. Karr again won the all-around title with a 39.625, tying the sixth-best score in school history.

Sophomore Kaitlyn Schou

The Pioneers finished the regular season with a No. 7 national ranking—the highest the team had ever been ranked heading into a conference championship meet. Denver also set a new program record for highest Regional Qualifying Score with its 197.040. At the time, DU also held its highest-ever national rankings on vault (No. 6) and bars (No. 7).

DU competed in the first semifinal as the No. 7-ranked team in the nation, tallying a new program-high Nationals team score with a 196.475, shattering the previous record by nearly a full point.

Denver gymnasts combined for the following Big 12 Conference awards: • Karr: • All-Big 12 Championship Team (AA) • All-Big 12 Team honoree (VT) • Gymnast of the Week (earned twice) • Newcomer of the Week (earned once) • Ross: • All-Big 12 Championship Team (AA, BB) • All-Big 12 Team honoree (BB)

Denver will lose two seniors for the 2018 season: Rachel Fielitz and Julia Ross. Joining the Pioneers in 2018 are National Letter of Intent signees Lynnzee Brown, Emily Glynn and Mia Sundstrom.

DU’s team scores on bars (49.300) and floor (49.2375) were new program records at Nationals. The team also tied its record on beam (48.975) and recorded the second-best vault mark (48.950).

PIONEER HISTORY The Pioneers women’s gymnastics program began later than some of the other Denver women’s varsity sports programs, but rapidly moved to the forefront of the national gymnastics scene. THE 1970’S Gymnastics was recognized as a Denver varsity sport for women in 1975. The first coach was Kathy Stacey. Her drive and spark ignited a fervor for the sport. Stacey, a former national coach in Hong Kong, started with only five gymnasts - Mary Troutman, Kathie Friend, Julia Gwinn, Cassie Boggs and Kim Telander. The Pioneers competed in the United States Gymnastics Federation until 1976. The 1977 season marked the first year Denver was able to field a complete 12-member squad as well as offer athletic scholarships. The Pioneers finished the season with a 3-1 record and won the regional small-college division championships. Donna Pelepchan was the Regional all-around champion. The 1978 season was the beginning of a run that would eventually lead to back-to-back national championships for the infant sport at Denver. The Pioneers placed fourth that year in the AIAW national championships. Melissa Barton, Katrina Stacey and Donna Pelepchan were selected as All-Americans. In 1979, Max Vercruyssen took over the helm and led Denver to a second-place finish in the AIAW National Championships. Jan Rohrer, Donna Mah, Diana Perkins, Barton and Pelepchan were selected as All-Americans that season. The second-place finishes were repeated in 1980 and 1981.

Karen Beer, Heather Earl and Linda Kring finished first, third and fourth respectively on the Bars at the 1983 NCAA Divsion II Championships.

THE 1980’S It was in 1981 that Dan Garcia took over as head coach for the Pioneers with the encour-

for four straight years. She was awarded more academic honors than any other top all-around gymnast and she completed her career in 1984 by capturing the highest award for a professional or amateur athlete in Colorado, the Colorado Sportswoman of the Year. In 1984, history was made when the University elected to elevate the varsity women’s gymnastics program to the NCAA Division I level, the first Denver women’s varsity sport ever to do so. Dan Garcia’s 1981-82 team won the DU’s first-ever women’s national title by taking the 1982 AIAW Divsion II National Championship on its home Floor in the DU Fieldhouse.

agement and help of the departing Vercruyssen. Garcia adopted a more competitive scheduling process, setting up competitions with major Division I programs such as Arizona, Arizona State, Nebraska and Oklahoma. “You don’t get better until you compete with the very best,” said Garcia. And that is exactly what occurred as Denver took a close second at the 1981 Division II AIAW Championships behind Centenary. The following season, dreams came true for the Pioneers. On March 16, 1982, Denver snapped the four-year reign of Centenary to capture the AIAW Division II Championship. It was the first National Title for a University of Denver women’s varsity sport and, to make it more satisfying, it happened at the DU Fieldhouse. Denver’s Karen Beer won the All-Around competition as well as three of the four individual events. Beer, Perkins, Anne Mason, Sonja Fowler and Liz Fudge earned All-America honors. When the AIAW was disbanded in 1982, the Pioneers gymnasts demonstrated that the previous year was no fluke by coming back to win the NCAA Division II National Championship in 1983. Beer repeated her winning performance by capturing the all-around, bars and beam titles. Once again, several Pioneers received All-America honors - Beer, Heather Earl, Linda Kring and Heidi Sjordal. By capturing the All-Around honors at the Division II championships, Beer earned an automatic berth to the NCAA Division I National Championships at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City.

PIONEER HISTORY Leading the Pioneers women’s gymnastics program into the 21st century is head coach Melissa Kutcher-Rinehart. Kutcher-Rinehart has brought national-caliber experience to the program, and continues to lead the Pioneers’ progression to the national level. In her first season, the Pioneers set or tied school records on three out of the four apparatus and also set a school team score record. Kutcher-Rinehart and assistant Michael Valentine were named Region 2 Coach and Assistant Coach of the Year, respectively. THE 2000’S In 2000, the Pioneers had their best finish to date since going Division I, finishing third at the Region II Championships and missing the NCAA Championships by a scant 0.025 points - the smallest possible margin. Denver still qualified its first three individuals - Sachi Ena, Jenny Ebdon and Melanie Schiff - as allarounders to the National Championships since Donna Elliott in 1992. John Figueroa, in his first season with the Pioneers, was named Region II Assistant Coach of the Year. 2001 proved to be Denver’s coming out party on the national scene, as the Pioneers became the first small, private school in NCAA history to qualify for the NCAA Championships. Denver pulled off the feat Leneé Berumen scored two perfect 10.0s in the same evening on by finishing March 30, 1996 - Denver’s first persecond at the fect 10.0 scores in school history. NCAA North Central Regional Championships, and nearly handing host Utah its first home defeat since 1979 to qualify as one of the top 12 teams in the nation. Freshman Ashley Shible became the first Pioneer gymnast to earn All-America honors in her freshman season since Heather Earl and Heidi Sjordal did so in 1983 as she earned the honor by finishing seventh on the Vault. She led the way for the Pioneers all season long, winning 23 individual events, highlighted by her all-around title in the North Central Regional Championships. Over the course of the season, Shible broke the school record in the all-around three times, then earned the first perfect 10.0 in school history on the vault on Feb. 10, nailing a unique vault named after her.

tied for fifth on bars with a 9.9 and tied for third with a 9.85 on floor to also earn All-American honors. She competed in the event finals on beam and floor . DU earned a return trip to Nationals in 2008, the first time ever the school qualified in back-toback seasons, finishing 12th in the nation.

Ashley Shible became the first DU gymnast to earn All-America honors her freshman season since Heather Earl and Heidi Sjordal in 1983.

The 2002 season was the crowning moment of Denver’s return to the forefront of collegiate gymnastics. The Pioneers hosted the NCAA North Central Region Championships, the first NCAA event ever held in Magness Arena. Though the team failed to advance, KutcherRinehart did advance the fourth individual qualifier of her career as sophomore Ashley Shible qualified for Nationals for the second straight year. In 2003, DU sent another gymnast to the National Championships as Michelle Kasuga competed in the all-around. In 2004, Denver broke its previous school record for team score four times, setting the mark of 197.875 that still stands. The Pioneers also hosted the NCAA North Central Region Championships for the second time, finishing third. In 2005, a tough DU squad nearly upset eventual National Champion Georgia at the Southeast Regional before finishing fourth. The Pioneers nonetheless sent Huffaker back to the National Championships, making her the first gymnast in DU’s Division I history to qualify as an individual for Nationals in back-to-back seasons.

In 2009, senior Jessica Lopez and junior Kelley Hennigan represented the Pioneers at the NCAA Championships as individual All-Around qualifiers. López entered the NCAA Championships as the No. 1 ranked all-arounder. She advanced to the individual event finals on vault, taking sixth with a 9.8313. Meanwhile, Hennigan tied for 27th overall in the all-around with a score of 39.200. López also earned All-American status on vault and beam, and was honored as the 2008 Colorado Sportswoman of the Year for Gymnastics. THE 2010’S The Pioneers sent two individuals to Nationals, and the team finished in third place at Regionals in 2010. Brianna Springer and Kelley Hennigan were the individuals that represented DU at Nationals where Springer finished 11th and Hennigan finished 20th. In 2011, Springer again qualified to Nationals, this time being joined by freshman Jorie Hall, who qualified on beam. Moriah Martin qualified to three consecutive NCAA Nationals from 2012-14. Martin advanced to event finals on vault in 2013, finishing 17th. A three-time All-American, Martin also became the third Pioneer in history to record a perfect 10.0 on vault in 2013. Nina McGee made program history in the 2015 season, qualifying to the NCAA National Championships and finishing tied for second on floor. It was the highest finish for a DU gymnast at NCAA Nationals since Karen Beer in 1982. McGee also finished 11th overall in the all-around. The Pioneers returned to the NCAA National Championships as a team in 2017, finishing a program-recond ninth overall and setting numerous program scoring records at Nationals-including the highest team score of 196.475, which was nearly a full point higher than the previous school record.

The 2007 season was a watershed one for DU. After five consecutive near misses, DU headed back to the National Championships for the first time since 2001. At the National Championships, sophomore Jessica López became the first three-time All-American gymnast in school history at the Division I level, and the Pioneers finished 10th overall, the best finish in program history. In Session II, López finished tied for first on beam to become a first-team All-American, DU’s first-ever on beam, On April 14, 2007, DU clinched its second-ever berth in the NCAA National

Championships by finishing second in the NCAA Regional in Magness Arena.
