Ohio State University will be making their 38th NCAA Regional appearance with Denver University making a Regionals appearance for the 18th consecutive year.

University of Wisconsin-Whitewater Junior Mackenzie Smith becomes the first gymnast in the program's history to qualify as an Event Specialist - she has had a fantastic season since transferring from Michigan State University.

The University of Florida and the University of Minnesota advance to Nationals after placing first and second respectively. This is the first time since 2013 that Minnesota has advanced to the NCAA National Championships.

McGee and the University of Missouri Freshman Morgan Porter advance to Nationals to compete in the All Around, whilst Sievers advances as a Vault specialist.
