The 1989 NCAA Women's Gymnastics Championships involved 12 schools competing for the national championship of women's NCAA Division I gymnastics. It was the eighth NCAA gymnastics national championship and the defending NCAA Team Champion for 1988 was Alabama. The competition took place in Athens, Georgia hosted by the University of Georgia in the Georgia Coliseum.
While Suzanne Yoculan and the Georgia Gym Dogs hosted, the favorite heading into nationals was Tanya Service and the UCLA Bruins with the #1 seed. Juggernaut #2 seed, Utah came in with the addition of 1988 American Olympian, Missy Marlowe. The Defending Champion, Alabama lost their top gymnast, Marie Robbins to an ankle injury before the finals.
