The Gymdogs are one of the biggest dynasties of NCAA women’s gymnastics with 10 national titles including an unprecedented five in a row and 16 SEC championships (the last one coming in 2008). Georgia gymnasts have also won 42 individual NCAA titles, making it the leader in the country. Legendary coach Suzanne Yoculan is responsible for making Georgia into what it is today. Georgia is home to inarguably the best NCAA gymnast ever, 2004 U.S. Olympian—and newly named head coach—Courtney Kupets. Kupets boasts nine NCAA individual titles to go along with her four team titles, and she is the only NCAA gymnast to win the all-around and every individual event. In NCAA gymnastics, true perfection has only been achieved once and that honor belongs to former Gymdog Karin Lichey. Lichey scored a perfect 40.0 as a freshman in a dual meet against Kentucky in 1996. Other legendary Gymdogs include Lucy Wener, Kim Arnold, Hope Spivey, Kristi Lichey, Sam Muhleman, Katie Heenan, Tiffany Tolnay, Grace Taylor and 2004 U.S. Olympian Courtney McCool.
