SUU has been competing in the Mountain Rim Gymnastics Conference and it makes the switch in the upcoming season.
The US named the women's squads for the World Championships and Pan American Games following a test event. The squads have a heavy NCAA flavor. Besides Simone Biles, heading to Atwerp are Florida's Leanne Wong and Kayla DiCello (alternate) plus commits Skye Blakely and Shilese Jones. Arkansas commit Joscelyn Roberson is also on the squad. For the Pan Am Games, DiCello is joined by UCLA's Jordan Chiles and LSU commits Zoe Miller and Kaliya Lincoln. 2025 recruit Tiana Sumanasekera completes the squad. The non travelling alternates include Evy Lowe (2026), Nola Matthews (2025)and Alicia Zhou. Oregon State's Jade Carey declined a spot on the Pan Am squad due to a family conflict and will go to the Swiss Cup in stead.
Utah has released the results of an outside review of their gymnastics program and Coach Tom Farden. The review resulted from reports of emotional and verbal abuse. Per the release, the report, compiled from 45 interviews, finds that while Farden’s actions caused some student-athletes to feel “increased fear of failure” and pressure to retain athletics scholarships, he did not engage in “any severe, pervasive or egregious” acts of emotional, verbal or physical abuse or harassment as defined by the SafeSport Code and NCAA regulations. The outside review outlined five recommendations for improvement. The report also did find one instance where Farden violated the Student-Athlete Health, Safety and Wellbeing program of the University's Athletic Department (through degrading language).
