Event to be held in Pauley Pavilion on April, 19

INDIANAPOLIS—The NCAA announced today the teams and individuals that have advanced to compete for the 2013 National Collegiate Women’s Gymnastics Championships. The championships, hosted by the University of California, Los Angeles, will be held at Pauley Pavilion, April 19-21.

The women’s gymnastics championships consist of 12 teams and 12 all-around competitors (who are not on a qualifying team) and individual event specialists. 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 process for determining rotation pairings for day one of the team competition at the site of the finals is based on a National Qualifying Score (NQS) calculated by adding the Regional Qualifying Score (RQS) to the score achieved at regional competition.

Once the NQS is calculated, teams are ranked based on the NQS from 1 to 12. Teams 1, 4, 5, 8, 9 and 12 were placed in Group A; and teams 2, 3, 6, 7, 10 and 11 placed in Group B. 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.

Team and individual qualifiers for the 2013 women’s gymnastics championships are as follows:
