Hunter, Ding, and Stack-Eaton win national titles


Double event winner Kat Ding with Georgia teammate Lindsey Cheek at the NCAA awards cermony. 

Kytra Hunter
, Kat Ding, and Geralen Stack-Eaton are your 2012 individual national champions.

Kytra Hunter started her night out on vault where she nearly stuck her 1.5 twisting Yurchenko. She followed up with a Yurchenko full with a big step back. The two vaults averaged were good enough for first, though, with a score of 9.875.

Kat Ding defended her national title on the uneven bars after a near-perfect routine for a 9.9875. She received four perfect 10s from the six judges.

Ding's major competition came from Alaina Johnson of Florida, but Johnson faltered and only scored a 9.4875.

On beam, Geralen Stack-Eaton took the title with a 9.9375 with Oklahoma's Megan Ferguson finishing second, and individual competitor form Arizona Katie Matusik finishing third.

On floor, it looked like Elyse Hopfner-Hibbs was going to run away with her first individual title, but Ding took it home with 9.95 for her final routine as a Gym Dog.
