Fayetteville, AR -
The Arizona gymnastics team competes in its 23rd straight postseason today when they compete as a No. 4 seed in the South Central Regional at Barnhill Arena in Fayetteville, Ark.
The Gymcats face off at 6:00 p.m. against No. 1 Stanford, No. 2 Arkansas, No. 3 Michigan, No. 5 Southern Utah, and No. 6 Arizona State. The top two finishers earn a trip to the national meet April 16-18 in Lincoln, Neb.
Arizona will begin today’s meet on bars and go through the same rotation they used at the Pac-10 Championships, where the team finished fifth.
The Gymcats completed a practice session yesterday for nearly two hours testing the gym and equipment for the regional meet. Pictures from the practice are in the Arizona gymnastics photo gallery.
The Arkansas Athletics site will have live stats to follow the action.
