Congrats to Georgia women's gymnastics on winning the 2009 NCAA Gymnastics Championship -- again!! That's 5 straight NCAA championships and 10th all time. Courtney Kupets was the star; winning Individual Titles in the All-Round; Uneven Parallel Bar; Balance Beam and tied LSU's Ashleigh Clare-Kearney in the Floor Exercise.

Georgia has been one of the most consistently successful programs in all of the Southeastern Conference, not only when compared to other gymnastics programs within the conference, but when compared to programs within all other sports. In fact, this program has been so good, that for 13 of the past 18 seasons, at least one gymnast has finished as an NCAA individual champion

The Georgia women's gymnastics, affectionately known as the "Gym Dogs" by its fans, have a long and storied history of competing at an extremely high level, and churning out elite gymnasts. All told, over the past 25 years, the program has a laundry list of successes to its credit. Over that period of time, the Gym Dogs have won nine NCAA championships as well as 16 Southeastern Conference championships. In addition to those team accomplishments, the program has generated no fewer than 33 individual champions as well as 68 All-Americans in gymnastics over that time period. No other program in the Southeastern Conference can attest to such achievements.

Head coach Suzanne Yoculan is the person on whose shoulders the Georgia gymnastics dynasty has been built. She has served as the head coach of the Georgia women's gymnastics program since 1984, and over the course of that period, she has worked hard, and worked effectively, to build an athletic program that has slowly but surely developed from one of competence, to one of unrivaled excellence. And it didn't take long for Yoculan to get started. In fact, she was already breaking down barriers in her very first season.

In her debut season as the head coach of the women's gymnastics team, Yoculan took the Gym Dogs to its first ever appearance in the NCAA championships. While the team's performance was less than stellar at the event, they only managed a 9th place finish, it was a significant step for the program. And the taste of the championships was a sweet one for the Georgia program, and one which the team worked hard to get back. It did not take long, as the team returned to the NCAA championships only 3 years later. This time, things went very differently, however. This time, they won. And only four years following that championship, the Gym Dogs won yet again. And this time, they didn't just win the NCAA championship, they dominated the competition. Many people believe that the 1993 Georgia women's gymnastics team is the greatest women's gymnastics team ever assembled.

Since then, the Gym Dogs have continued to perform at a stunningly high level under Yoculan. In 1998, the team won another NCAA championship, and their margin of victory dwarfed that of even their dominant 1993 squad. The team finished that season with a 35-0 record. That undefeated performance was duplicated in 1999, by another undefeated finish. Since then the team has continued to perform at the highest possible levels, winning, and winning big, often. 20006 ended with the team's seventh national title and the team finished the season with a perfect record, the 4th time the Gym Dogs had done that.

It's hasn't been done a single time by any other team.
