Dabritz was named the Pac-12 Gymnast of the Week for the second time this season and Wilson won her fourth Specialist of the Week honor.
Dabritz won two events and the all-around against the Gators and scored Utah's first perfect 10.0 on bars since 2003. She also set career highs in winning the all-around (39.700) and floor (9.975), and placed third on vault with a career-tying 9.925.
Wilson became the first Ute gymnast ever to go undefeated on an event in the regular season, winning her 10th vault title in as many meets. Wilson, who is ranked No. 2 in the nation on the vault this week after six weeks at No. 1, tied for first in last Saturday's meet with a 9.975. She also set career highs in the all-around (39.650), on bars (9.90) and beam (9.90).
Utes have now collected nine Pac-12 weekly honors in 2013: Dabritz was the Gymnast of the Week on Jan. 22 and Mar. 19, and the Specialist of the Week on Feb. 12. Wilson is a four-time Specialist of the Week (Jan. 22, Feb. 5, Feb. 19 and Mar. 19) and Lia Del Priore was named Specialist of the Week on Feb. 23). Breanna Hughes won Freshman of the Week on Mar. 12.
In their two years as a member of the Pac-12 Conference, the Utes have won 13 total weekly Pac-12 honors: nine Specialists of the Week, three Gymnasts of the Week and one Freshman of the Week.
