Gymcats head to Los Angeles regional

The Arizona gymnastics team will head to Los Angeles, Calif., to participate in its 24th straight postseason competition on April 10 at 6 p.m. at UCLA’s Pauley Pavilion.

“”A lot of times in the postseason, the problem is just getting there,”” said UA head coach Bill Ryden. “”For us, it will be very simple; it’s an hour flight.””

The Gymcats are the No. 4 seed heading into the meet. There are five other teams competing in the same bracket, and the Gymcats will move on to the next round of nationals if they place in the top two.

The team will be competing against UCLA, Arkansas, Iowa State, Brigham Young Univeristy and ASU. UCLA, Arkansas and Iowa State are currently ranked No. 3, No, 9 and No. 17, respectively, while BYU and ASU are unranked. The Gymcats are currently ranked No. 21, having jumped up two spots after their performance last weekend.

“”I feel good about it … we are excited … it’s obviously going to be good gymnastics,”” Ryden said. “”(I) feel like we are a team on the rise. We will be up to the challenge.””
