These competitions were full of surprises. The first potential upset was Washington over Utah, but Washington crumbled on beam, allowing Utah to continue easily. Then, #4 Stanford counted a fall on beam. First, Minnesota tied with them and it became clear that they would not be going to nationals. But in the end, it was the sixth seed, #24 Kent State, that picked up the last spot to go compete at the nationals that they are co-hosting. This will be their first trip to nationals. Before their last rotation, it looked like the Denver regional would be dominated by #1 Florida, but two missed routines- one an 8.475, meant that both Arkansas and Boise State could pass them if they averaged 9.81 to tie, and in the event of a tie would almost definitely win because the 8.475 would be counted against Florida. In the end, Boise State came up .025 short. They would have been second in the event of a tie breaker. Also surprising was UCLA’s dominating. They looked on today from the beginning. As defending champions they haven’t had the best season, but it’s definitely coming together. The championships should be very exciting!

Also, thanks to gymnastike for compiling information about all of the meets. You saved me at least 10 minutes by posting the individual qualifiers from Tuscaloosa so I did not have to add up every single score from every single gymnast to figure it out.

    Just pointing out:

    From the Norman Regional, Morgan Evans is from North Carolina, not NC State, and Aliza Vaccher is from Washington. 🙂
