Greg Marsden is one of the foundational coaches of NCAA women’s gymnastics. He pioneered the Utah program, and his Utes have never missed a nationals, even since his departure in 2014. He is also a big part of building gymnastics into the popular (in our circles, anyway) sport we know and love and for packing Huntsman over the years.

Pause for a Megan appreciation moment.
When you have to start the Super Six on beam.
Those accomplishments? NBD.
2013 was really a golden year in NCAA gym.
We’ll leave you with this:
Don’t worry, we’ll dig deeper into that. Stay tuned.
