Sunday April 7, 2013Top-seeded Florida Gymnasts to Compete in NCAA Championships' Session I

Gainesville, Fla.

Top-seeded Florida will be in NCAA Championships' semifinal I on April 19 in Los Angeles.

 

The top-seeded University of Florida gymnastics team is in the opening session of NCAA Championships’ semifinal competition on Friday, April 19 at 3 p.m. (ET). Semifinal I contains three of the five Southeastern Conference teams which advanced to the 2013 NCAA Championships – Florida, Georgia and LSU– along with Illinois, Minnesota and Stanford.

 

Semifinal II (which begins at 9 p.m. ET) consists of two-time defending NCAA champion Alabama, Arkansas, UCLA, Michigan, Oklahoma and Utah. The NCAA Championships are set for April 19-21 at the New Pauley Pavilion in Los Angeles, Calif.

 

The National Qualifying Score (NQS) determined the semifinal assignments of the NCAA Championships' team competition. The NQS ranks teams 1-12 by adding a team's regional qualifying score (RQS) and score from regional competition. Teams 1, 4, 5, 8, 9 and 12 were placed in Friday’s Semifinal I and teams 2, 3, 6, 7, 10 and 11 placed in Semifinal II. Florida is the No. 1 seed for the third time in the program’s history after winning the NCAA Gainesville Regional last Saturday with the nation’s top total (198.40) in regional competition.

 

The top three teams in each of Friday’s sessions will advance to the NCAA Super Six on Saturday, April 20 at 7 p.m. (ET), where the national team champion is determined. ESPN3 will show the NCAA Super Six live and the meet will air tape-delayed on ESPNU April 30 at 8 p.m. ET.

 

Florida was second in 2012 NCAA Championships’ Super Six competition in the tightest meet ever between the top three finishers – Alabama (197.85), Florida (197.775) and UCLA (197.75).
