Three-time national coach of the year K.J. Kindler said she was proud of her team’s fight during a post-event interview with ESPN’s Laura Rutledge.

“Holy cow,” she said. “I mean, it’s…these guys totally grabbed it. … We were giving away things all along the way, and they fought. They fought so hard.”

The team had already wrapped up the title before Scaman took the floor, although Kindler said in her interview the senior had no idea the Sooners had already won their second title in three seasons.

Before the feeling of winning another national championship sunk in, Kindler seemed to be at a loss for words when Rutledge asked her to describe the emotion of winning.

“I can’t. It’s indescribable,” she said. “It’s just—it’s amazing.”

The Florida Gators, who would have earned their fourth straight title had they won (having tied Oklahoma in 2014), led heading into Saturday. They earned the top score in three of four team events, and Bridget Sloan’s total score of 39.7000 topped all individuals.

Sloan, who ended her career with three team and six individual championships, was happy with her performance, but she wasn’t satisfied:

“Even if you’re getting a 10 on everything you’re probably saying, ‘I can do better.’ I really couldn’t have asked for a better performance. At the same time, there are things I can work on. That’s how prelims go. I don’t want to say prelims are survival, but you want to go 4-for-4. You want to hit all your routines.” – Bridget Sloan
