TUCSON, Ariz. ?- Less than 24 hours remain before competition officially begins at the South Central Regional women’s gymnastics championships hosted by the University of Arizona, but for the six-team field and several other individual qualifiers, march-in cannot come soon enough.

 

The teams and competitors took to the McKale Center floor for two split practice sessions (Click here to view photo gallery). The region’s top three seeds, Stanford, Oregon State and Arizona began workouts at 2 p.m. local time, while Illinois, Arizona State and Illinois-Chicago hit the floor two hours later. The qualifying teams also welcomed individual competitors from Northern Illinois, Illinois State, Southeast Missouri State and Texas Women’s University.

 

For most teams, workouts were light as each tired to get familiar with the equipment and the setting of the arena. And while each team and competitor was focused on making final preparations before tomorrow night’s meet, there was a pleasant sense of relaxation and enjoyment as everyone absorbed the added excitement and energy that surrounds an NCAA Regional meet.

 

All six teams and individual competitors are staying at the Marriott University Park located on the western edge of the University of Arizona campus. Each is sure to find a comfortable place to dine away from the rest, before returning to the hotel for one final night’s sleep one the eve of the biggest meet of the year.

 

When the sun rises on Saturday morning and teams gather for their morning breakfasts, only a few short hours will be left to tick away before heading over to McKale Center. Teams will begin open stretching at 3:45 p.m., and then continue through warm-ups until march-in begins. Once the clock hits 6 p.m., the race will officially be on to determine who is heading to Salt Lake City to compete at the 2007 national champions.

 

For now, all six teams and each individual competitor have their dreams waiting to be fulfilled.

 

NOTE: Following the meet, www.arizonaathletics.com will provide free video of the South central Regional Championships.
