UCLA To Compete At North Carolina State In NCAA Gymnastics Regionals

March 22, 2004

The top-ranked UCLA Gymnastics team will travel to Raleigh, NC for the NCAA Southeast Regional Gymnastics Championships on Saturday, Apr. 3. Joining the Bruins in the Regional will be 12th-ranked North Carolina, 13th-ranked Nebraska, 21st ranked West Virginia, host and 22nd ranked North Carolina State and Maryland. The meet will take place in the Reynolds Coliseum at 6:00 pm Eastern Time.

The top two teams, as well as the top two all-around competitors not from an advancing team, at each regional will receive a berth in the NCAA Championships, which will be at UCLA's Pauley Pavilion Apr. 15-17. In addition, individual event winners not from a qualifying team or all-arounder will advance. Also competing at the meet will be five at-large individual all-around competitors and four at-large individual event specialists.

UCLA will begin the regional meet on the balance beam and will finish on the uneven bars. Maryland will begin on vault, North Carolina on a bye before bars, Nebraska on bars, North Carolina State on a bye before floor and West Virginia on floor.
