Grats to the Lady Bulldogs/Graduation Data

Many congratulations to the Lady Bulldogs of Georgia on their third straight NCAA women’s gymnastics championship. They bested host Utah, along with Florida, UCLA, Stanford, and Nebraska in the team finals on Friday.

Georgia sophomore Courtney Kupets also took her fourth and fifth career individual titles yesterday, winning the all-round championship and the vault. Other individual titles went to Terin Humphrey of Alabama in the Uneven Parallel Bars, Ashley Postell of Utah in the Balance Beam, and Morgan Dennis of Alabama in the Floor Exercise.

Georgia also commands a respectable 73% graduation rate in sports ‘Other’ than Basketball and Cross-Country/Track. It is no great surprise that Stanford tops out the graduation rate amongst participating teams at 88%, followed by UCLA at 78%, Florida at 64%, and Alabama at 63%. Utah brings up the rear at a disappointing, but respectable, 61%.
