The NCAA Women's Gymnastics Regional Championships Announcements have been made. Six teams, five All Around competitors and one individual event specialist per event (who has a minimum Regional Qualifying Score or RQS of 9.4) were named to each of the predetermined sites. The top 18 teams were seeded nationally (based on RQS) and placed into the bracket followed by teams 19-36 who were placed geographically. Individual All Around gymnasts and individual event specialists were placed geographically. All Regionals will be held on the 5th of April. The top two teams and All Around competitors (who are not on an advancing team) from each Regional will receive automatic berths to the National Championships.
