In the second semifinal, the defending Champions began their night with the highest beam total of the day, a 49.60, led by Alabama seniors Ashley Priess and Geralen Stack-Eaton.
#1 Florida delivered four great events to take second, highlighted by a 49.575 on vault in the first rotation.
Freshman Kytra Hunter had another historic competition in the Gwinnett Center, the same arena where she won last month's SEC title, to claim the 2012 NCAA All Around crown with an enormous 39.725. Georgia senior Kat Ding was 2nd with 39.650, and Arkansas senior Jaime Pisani scored 39.625 for 3rd.
Pisani and teammate Katherine Grable led Arkansas to a surprise visit back to the Super Six Finals, capitalizing on mistakes for #5 ranked Georgia.
Number 5 seed Georgia had an up and down night, beginning with a season high 49.40 on bars, rallying back from 2 falls for leadoff Christa Tanella. However, beam was a different story. Georgia suffered three falls on beam to total just a 48.275 and fell to last place. They finished their night on vault in dominating fashion, sticking 4 out of 6 of their yurchenko full vaults, highlighted by a 9.975 for Kat Ding. Georgia finished a dissapointed 5th place.
The surprise of the Championships was Ohio State who impressed with their big tricks and poise. They came in as the 12th seed and finished in 4th today with a 196.525.
