FAYETTEVILLE – The No. 16 University of Arkansas gymnastics team (8-12-1, 3-10-1 SEC) travels to Corvallis, Ore., to compete in the Corvallis NCAA Regional as the third-seeded team. This will be the Razorbacks 10th straight season in post-season competition. The other teams in Arkansas’ regional will be the top-seeded Georgia Bulldogs, two-seed Oregon State, four-seed Boise State, five-seed Arizona State and six-seed California. The meet is scheduled to begin at 6 p.m. central, in Gill Coliseum.

“We have had a really good week of practice to regroup and prepare ourselves for the meet,” co-head coach Mark Cook said. “We had a lot of time to practice our competition order and really get our freshman ready to compete in this kind of atmosphere.”

The Razorbacks start on a bye before floor in rotation one, are on the floor in rotation two, on the vault in rotation three, have a bye before bars in rotation four, on the bars in rotation five and finish up on the beam in rotation six.

In the regional, Georgia is the highest ranked team at No. 4 in the nation. Oregon State is at No. 10, Boise State is No. 21 and Arizona State and Cal are not currently featured in the top 25.
In the event rankings, Arkansas is tied at No. 9 on the floor, tied for No. 14 on the bars, No. 16 on the vault and No. 22 on the beam. The Razorbacks have the highest ranked floor rotation in the regional.

Individually, junior Katherine Grable is tied at No. 14 in the all-around competition and the second highest ranked gymnast in the regional behind Oregon State’s Makayla Stambaugh at No. 13. Grable is also tied at No. 24 on the vault ant tied at No. 13 on the floor with Stambaugh.

Arkansas comes into the regional having recorded its highest score in program history at the SEC Championship with a 196.400, two weeks ago.

“Oregon State is definitely tough at home and Georgia is No. 4 in the country,” Cook said. “If one of these teams has a slip up we hope we can take advantage of that situation and we could slide right past them. There is going to pressure on everyone in this meet and we have to go out there and hit our routines. We need to go out to this meet and be tenacious, that is kind of the motto of being a Razorback, being fierce competitors.”

Fans can follow along during the meet with live results, interactive blog and sport-specific @RazorbackGYM Twitter page. Oregon State will also offer a live stream of the meet on its website.
