No. 23 UNH gymnasts head to Penn St. as No. 4 seed for NCAAs regional

The 23rd-ranked University of New Hampshire gymnastics team was selected Monday as the No. 4 seed at the NCAA University Park Regional Championship hosted by Penn State University on Saturday, April 5, at 4 p.m.

The Wildcats will compete against top-ranked Florida (No. 1 seed), 12th-ranked Oregon State (No. 2 seed), 15th-ranked Penn State (No. 3 seed), Kentucky (No. 5 seed) and Maryland (No. 6 seed).

The top two teams and top two all-around competitors (who are not on an advancing team) from the University Park Regional will advance to the NCAA National Collegiate Women’s Gymnastics Championships (April 18-20), hosted by the University of Alabama.

New Hampshire (21-4, 13-2 East Atlantic Gymnastics League) won its second-ever EAGL Championship at the Whittemore Center last Saturday to earn the league’s automatic bid. The Wildcats return to the NCAA Regional Championship for the 31st time in the last 33 years. The program heads to the post-season competition for the 33rd time in head coach Gail Goodspeed’s 35 years at the helm.
