INDIANAPOLIS -- The NCAA announced Monday the teams and individuals that have advanced to compete for the 2014 National Collegiate Women’s Gymnastics Championships.
The championships, hosted by Alabama and the Alabama Sports Foundation, will be held at the Birmingham-Jefferson Convention Complex, April 18-20.
The women’s gymnastics championships consist of 12 teams and 12 all-around competitors (who are not on a qualifying team). The top two teams and the top two all-around competitors from each of the six regionals have advanced to the national championships. In addition, the event winners at each regional also advance to the national championships (in their specific event) if they were not part of a qualifying team or the all-around qualifiers.
The top two teams from the three regionals on the left side of the bracket will compete in one of the semifinals, and the top two teams from the three regionals on the right side of the bracket will compete in the other semifinal.
The host team and its corresponding group will compete in the second semifinal. If there is not a host institution competing, a random draw will be used to determine which group is placed in semifinal one or two. This year, host Alabama advanced to the national championships and, thus, the left side of the bracket will compete in the second semifinal.
