PROVO -- The BYU women's gymnastics team has earned a berth in the NCAA Regionals announced by the NCAA Monday afternoon. The No. 24-ranked Cougars will be a part of the North Central Regional taking place in Ames, Iowa on April 8.

Joining BYU in the North Central Regional is Iowa State (No. 4), Arizona State (No. 11), Arizona (No. 15), Denver (No. 19) and Minnesota (No. 21). The top two scoring teams at Regionals will advance to the NCAA Championships in Corvallis, Ore. April 20-22.

No. 2 Utah is the only other team in the state to qualify for Regionals. The Utes will be the top seed in the Northeast Regional held in Ann Arbor, Mich.

No. 25 Southern Utah just missed qualifying for Regionals by finishing .040 points behind BYU, who ended with an RQS of 194.450.

"We will all commit to do better from here on," BYU coach Brad Cattermole said. "We're happy to be going and look forward to competing."

The Cougars have now made it to Regionals their last seven years. Their No. 6 seed this season is their lowest seed in the last six years. BYU has made it to Regionals in all but one of the 18 years Cattermole has been with the school. The Cougars went in to Regionals as the No. 3 seed last season but pulled together one of their best performances of the year to advance to Nationals.

Starting time for Regionals is scheduled for 6 pm CST.
