Regional Semifinal Results

Using a separate post here to round up the results from today’s regional sessions, what’s up tomorrow, and where we stand with the individual qualifiers to nationals.

Individual qualifier scores are based on today’s results (1 AAer and 1 from each event per regional), but we won’t know who they are until tomorrow because we don’t yet know which teams are making nationals.

GEORGIA REGIONAL

Session 1

Minnesota – 197.625
Denver – 196.775

Georgia – 196.750
Oregon State – 196.375

Session 2

Florida – 197.950
NC State – 196.775

Illinois – 196.375
CMU – 195.575

Individuals

AA – The leader is currently Ramler, who will make nationals if Minnesota doesn’t as a team. Lynnzee Brown is just behind her, so if Minnesota does make it as a team, then Brown would go as the AAer. If Minnesota and Denver were to both advance, then Megan Skaggs would go for the AA.

VT – It’s Loper, then Brown, then Ramler and Madi Dagen. Which means it will be Loper if Minnesota doesn’t go as a team, but it will be Madi Dagen if Minnesota does go as a team because Brown would already have the AA spot.

UB – Trinity Thomas with a 10 leads, but Hannah Demers has a good shot here with her 9.925. She would go if Florida and Minnesota advance as teams. It’s Sales if Minnesota doesn’t make it.

BB – Morgan Tong of CMU in a similar position to Demers here. She’ll go for beam as long as Florida advances as a team.

FX – Brown, Loper, and Nya Reed all went 9.950, but if Florida and Minnesota go, and Brown gets the AA spot, then it would be Emily Shepard for NC State.

West Virginia Regional

Session 1

Cal – 197.725
Ohio State – 196.525

BYU – 196.350
Towson – 195.025

Session 2

Michigan – 197.650
UCLA – 197.050

West Virginia – 195.650
Kent State – 194.300

Individuals

AA – It’s allll Michigan at the top of the AA standings, led by Brooks, but then it’s Andi Li and Chae Campbell. So whichever team doesn’t make it, there’s your AA representative.

VT – It’s all Michigan again, led by Brooks, then Wojcik. Then it’s Campbell and Dennis for UCLA, and Schank for Cal. So, since the others would be the AA representatives. It will be either Wojcik, Dennis, or Schank depending on which team doesn’t go.

UB – It’s Watterson on 9.975, then Wojcik, Frazier, and Bonsall on 9.950. Frazier and Wojcik have the tiebreak edge though, so it will be one of Watterson, Wojcik ,and Frazier depending on team qualification.

BB – Beam is Maya Bordas, then Hannah Joyner for Rutgers, so if Cal goes through, then Joyner will qualify.

FX – If Cal and Michigan advance to nationals, then we’re going to end up with an 80-billion way tie of people on 9.900, including basically everyone from West Virginia. It’s either Abbie Pierson or Abbey Miner Alder coming out of that tiebreak.

Alabama Regional

Session 1

Alabama – 197.525
Arkansas – 197.250

Iowa – 197.050
Iowa State – 196.525

Session 2

Oklahoma – 198.000
Missouri – 197.325

Maryland – 195.075

Individuals

AA – We’ve got Luisa Blanco, Anastasia Webb, and Kennedy Hambrick, so whichever team doesn’t advance…

VT – Angelica Labat for Illinois State went 9.950 and will qualify to nationals

UB – Doggette and Webb got 10s. If Oklahoma and Alabama go through as teams, it will be either Maggie O’Hara or Clair Kaji on 9.925

BB – Blanco got 10.00 and Karrie Thomas got 9.975. But again if Oklahoma and Alabama advance, it will be Sydney Schaffer on 9.950

FX – Again if Oklahoma and Alabama go through, it’s either Hannah McCrary, Sophia Carter, or Jerquavia Henderson

Utah Regional

Session 1

Utah – 197.500
Arizona State – 196.600

So Utah – 195.975
Boise State – 195.825

Session 2

Kentucky – 197.125
LSU – 197.025

Arizona – 196.025
Utah State – 196.025

Individuals

AA – It’s Kiya Johnson, then Maile O’Keefe, then Hannah Scharf, so it will be one of those three.

VT – It’s Johnson and Bryant, then a bunch of 9.900s. If LSU makes it as a team, then we have a tie between Worley of Kentucky, Smith of Washington, and Scharf. Scharf would take the tiebreak, but if she goes for the AA, then it would be Worley on the tiebreak over Smith.

UB – Leonard-Baker, Worley, and Durante all got 9.950, so one of them will be the individual for bars. Leonard-Baker would win the tiebreak over Worley if neither Arizona State nor Kentucky qualify as a team.

BB – It’s all of Utah and Reagan Campbell at the top. So if Utah and LSU go through, then it’s either Bunn or Angeny, who are tied on the tiebreak.

FX – It’s Kiya Johnson, then Scharf, but if LSU qualifies as a team and Scharf gets the AA spot, then we go to a mega-tie on 9.900, which would go to Malia Hargrove on the tiebreak.

  1. Is anyone able to please tell me what the rotation order is for the ncaa semi finals and t”four on the floor or send me the link to to this. Eg which event each of the 8 competitors will start on depending on where they finish in the the regional final eg where will first place finisher of regional final 1 start in the champ semifinals? Last year there was a link to this somewhere but I can’t find it

    1. I’m not sure where I got this – one of the announcers, maybe? – but I wrote down:
      VT – Winner session 2
      UB – Winner session 1
      BB – Runner up session 1
      FX – Runner up session 2

      (It’s on the page with my notes from the second session in SLC, so I’m guessing it came from Bart & Kathy. I also had the audio going from Tuscaloosa, though, too.)

      1. Thanks this is definetly the case for the regional final I’m just wondering how the regional final results apply to the semi final ands then the four on the floor . Are u aware of this at all?

    2. The Women’s Gymnastics Committee conducted a random draw for 2021 semifnal competition:

      Vault: Second-place teams from regions with seeds 1 and 2
      Bars: Winners from regions with seeds 1 and 2
      Beam: Winners from regions with seeds 4 and 3
      Floor: Second-place teams from regions with seeds 4 and 3

      The top two teams from each semifnal will advance to the national championship competition. The draw for the 2021 National Championship is as follows:

      Vault: Semifnal II, Team 1
      Bars: Semifnal II, Team 2
      Beam: Semifnal I, Team 2
      Floor: Semifnal I, Team 1

  2. Maybe I missed it somewhere earlier – can anyone point me to the tiebreak procedure? (“Abbie Pierson or Abbey Miner Alder coming out of that tiebreak,” “either Maggie O’Hara or Clair Kaji on 9.925,” etc.) Thanks!

    1. I am not 100% sure, but I think you add the two scores that weren’t counted and average those with the two that were counted. If there is still a tie, whoever has the higher NQS qualifies

      Like

      1. You missed one little step: If counting all four scores did not break the tie, the head judge score will decide. Only if that is still tied, then the higher NQS will tip the balance.

      2. We actually have a situation where two people are tied, even after those tiebreaks – Nya Reed of Florida and Ona Loper got all the same judges’ scores on floor at Regionals and they are tied in NQS. It’s unlikely to matter, as it’s only relevant if BOTH Florida and Minnesota fail to qualify today, which would take quite the chain of events. I assume at that point they would then look to average score for the season though, in which case, Reed would win the tiebreaker.

    2. Some Regional score links had each judge’s score and some did not so there are a few ties that are still up in the air.

  3. I’m a huge Denver fan but they don’t have the vaults to make it unless MN and FL falter. Accounting for the travesty of regular season home scoring, and based solely on intuition/feelings (and what I recall of Spencer’s comments), I think the final 8 should be:

    MN & FL
    Cal & MI
    OK & AR
    UT & KY

    1. so you think kentucky makes it over LSU and arkansas over bama? I don’t think so, and this is coming from an arkansas fan

      1. I think it could happen. This is certainly subconscious penalizing of LSU’s ridiculous home scoring. Just can’t scrub the image of AS’s DLO going 9.9+. It’s the judges but also judges respond to program pressure so I’m just feeling ready for a fairness adjustment. As for AR and AL just wishful underdog thoughts (not having been able to catch many of their respective meets and thinking historic performances).

    2. Denver has not exactly hurt for friendly scoring. They need Glynn to pull it off but I would not count out a poor showing by UF giving them a hand.

      I think it will come down to who hits. I cursed LSUs overacting yesterday but the likelihood of Bryant and Durante being weak links on consecutive days is very unlikely. I’m also not sold on Arkansas but again- if someone picks the right night to hit.

      1. I doubt Glynn will be back today, I think she injured herself during floor warmups yesterday

      2. There was a clear agenda yesterday with Arkansas’ beam scores for them to get through. Now that they did, going against home team Alabama for the second spot, I wonder if their wobbly beam routines will “magically” drop back into the 9.7’s like they were at SEC championships.

      3. Athens is the only regional that will have any drama. With Trinity out of all-around, UF has absolutely zero margin for a flat performance. Gators start on vault and will be behind after the first rotation (barring Den or Minn having meltdowns), the question is how far behind they will be.

      4. did you watch semi-finals? Florida posted the highest score from these three teams and Denver is the most likely to be out

      5. I think Glynn I may be injured 😦
        And without Mundell or other backups (Subject and Lockhart also not there) they are in a struggle situation for routines. It was a good season and Lynnzee will hopefully advance so I’m not sobbing (yet).

      6. what happened with Mundell? I didn’t see her in the last couple of meets. Is she injured? Also, Lockhart tore her achilles this season and Subject is still struggling with an eating disorder I think (I’m not sure about AK tho)

        Like

      7. and it is guaranteed that Lynnzee will advance through the AA if Minnesota and Florida overtake Denver

        Like

      8. Just a guess that Mundell may be injured as she seemed to limp off the last routine I saw from her this season. Can’t remember which apparatus tho
