The 2017 National Collegiate Women’s Gymnastics Championships regional selections were announced today by the NCAA. Six teams, four all-around competitors (who are not on a qualifying team) and two individual event specialists per event [who have a minimum Regional Qualifying Score (RQS) of 9.4] were named to each of the six predetermined host sites. The top 18-teams are seeded nationally, based on RQS, and placed into the bracket. Teams 19-36 are placed geographically at one of the six regional sites. Seeding determined at the time of regional selections will be maintained throughout the championships. All-around competitors and event specialists are assigned to their respective geographic region. In the event of a tie for the last berth into regional competition and for seeding purposes, the team, all-around competitor or individual event specialist with the highest score, not including the six used to calculate the regional qualifying score, will qualify. If a tie still exists, the process is continued until the tie is broken. Read More
