Or will a new face emerge as champion?

Illustrated headshot of Peri GoodmanPeri: Trinity Thomas has the numbers behind her, and comes in as the reigning champion. I wouldn’t be surprised if either Natalie Wojcik or Sierra Brooks make serious cases this year, being the Big Ten’s largest names. 

Illustrated headshot of Alyssa Van AukerAlyssa: As long as she is not injured, I see Trinity Thomas walking away with this one.


Illustrated headshot of Emily MinehartEmily M: I certainly think Thomas has a fair chance of defending her title, but this year I think it will go to Jade Carey. A lot will have to go right for the Beavers or for her individually qualifying, but if she’s there on the day, this could be her year.

Rebecca Scally Illustrated HeadshotRebecca: The top of the all-around field is unusually deep this year, so it’s hard to pick. I’m going with Sunisa Lee. I think it’ll be hard for nationals judges to avoid getting caught up in the emotion of what could be the last day of the Olympic champion’s NCAA career.

Savanna Whitten illustrated headshotSavanna: Hear me out though…Jordan Chiles. She has the difficulty, she has the execution, and if she hits, she could easily walk away with an all-around title.


Illustrated headshot of Allison FreemanAllison: I love Trinity Thomas, but I am absolutely team Jade Carey with this. She may have a longer, winding road to making it happen, but if there’s one thing the past few seasons of college gym has shown us, it’s expect the unexpected.
