Gymnastics Takes the Top Seed at the Salt Lake Regionals

The No. 5 Utah Red Rocks claimed the top seed at the Salt Lake Regionals, which will take place at the Huntsman Center on Saturday Apr. 2 at 6 p.m. MT. The other teams in the regional are No. 8 UCLA, No. 17 Washington, No. 23 Southern Utah, Illinois and Utah State. Utah has faced UCLA and Washington twice and Southern Utah once. Utah defeated Washington and Southern Utah but fell to UCLA in both meetings (in Los Angeles and at the Pac-12 Championship to win the 2016 Pac-12 title). The top two teams from the Salt Lake Regional will qualify for Nationals in Fort Worth, Texas on Apr. 15-16. A total of six regionals will occur on Apr. 2, which will yield the 12 teams that will compete at Nationals. Also in the Regional are several at-large gymnasts. The Salt Lake Regional will be the last time that seniors Kailah Delaney, Breanna Hughes, and Kassandra Lopez compete at the Huntsman Center.

Below is a list of the teams competing at each of the Regionals and the at-large gymnasts at the Salt Lake Regional.
