The Balance Beam Situation

Because gymnastics is a comedy, not a drama

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.
