The Gymbacks are one of the younger teams in the NCAA, having been established only in 2003. They skyrocketed among the best teams in the nation within a few years, placing fifth at NCAAs in 2009. The Gymbacks reached the Super Six again in 2012 and finished sixth. In 2014, Arkansas great Katherine Grable brought the program its first two national titles on vault and floor. Alongside Grable, other successful former Gymbacks include Casey Jo Magee, Jaime Pisani and Michelle Stout.
