Sloan's 9.90 gave her the beam win. It was her third 9.90 or better beam mark of the weekend, as she advanced to the final with her 9.90 in Friday's semifinal competition and she shared the beam lead in Saturday's Super Six at 9.95. Two other Gators joined Sloan on the beam award's podium. Mackenzie Caquatto was fourth at 9.85 and senior Marissa King took seventh with her 9.7875. For the first time since 2007, Florida was represented in each of the four apparatus finals. In the vault final, senior Ashanée Dickerson shared fifth (9.90) while sophomore Kytra Hunter took 16th (9.85) and Johnson tied for 17th (9.825). Two Gators also appeared in the floor exercise final. Sloan shared fourth at 9.90 and King tied for sixth at 9.8875.
