2016 Salt Lake City Regional

9:00 PM

The Salt Lake City Regional was hosted by the University of Utah at the Jon M. Huntsman Center. Some history headed into the Regional: Utah last hosted a NCAA Regional in 2012 and have won 11 out of the 12 Regionals they have hosted (they were runner up at the 2010 Regionals to Florida). The University of Illinois-Champaign are making their 13th consecutive Regional trip whilst the University of California-Los Angeles have won 21 Regional titles and placed second to Utah back at the Fayetteville Regional in 2014. This marks the tenth consecutive Regionals for the University of Washington whilst it is the third straight for Utah State University (something that hasn't been done since the program appeared in 17 straight from 1986 to 2002. Senior Gymnast M'rcy Matsunami of the University of Alaska-Anchorage makes her second consecutive trip to the Regionals competition as an All Around qualifier after competing as a Vault specialist back in her Freshman year. Sacramento State Senior Kalliah McCartney is making her third Regionals appearance whilst her team mates, Sophomore Julia Konner and Junior Cassie Benning are making their second appearance (last qualified in 2014). Interestingly the reserve gymnast for the All Around, Maddie Herr (San Jose State University) has been named for the second time in two years since transferring from Ohio State University. University of California-Davis Junior Katy Nogaki becomes the sixth UC-Davis gymnast to earn three trips to the NCAA Regionals and is the first to participate in three consecutively whilst Alexis Brown and Stephanie Stamates make their Regionals debuts.

M'rcy Matsunami of the University of Alaska-Anchorage only performed on the Uneven Bars after an unfortunate injury during Warm-Ups today. The University of Utah and the University of California-Los Angeles who finished first and second respectively advance to the 2016 NCAA National Championships. Utah Senior Kailah Delaney tied with UCLA Freshman Madison Preston for the top score on the Vault whilst UCLA's Redshirt Junior Christine 'Peng-Peng' Lee was the Uneven Bars champion. UCLA Senior Danusia Francis and the University of Washington Senior Allison Northey tied for the mark on the Balance Beam. University of Illinois-Champaign Freshman Lizzy LeDuc tallied a career-high on the Floor Exercise to tie for the honors with UCLA's Redshirt Senior Sadiqua Bynum. As the two top All Arounders whose teams did not qualify to Nationals, Northey and Southern Utah University Junior Danielle Ramirez advance as All Around Qualifiers. LeDuc joins them as a National  Qualifier on the Floor Exercise.
