For the third time in six years, the University of Georgia will serve as one of six host sites for an NCAA Gymnastics Regional in 2016. The competition will be held at Stegeman Coliseum on Saturday, April 2, and teams and all-around competitors advancing out of the regional championships will compete at the NCAA Championships in Forth Worth, Texas, April 15-17.
It was previously announced that Florida would host an NCAA Regional in 2016 and Georgia in 2017, but renovation of UF’s Stephen C. O’Connell Center was moved back a year, so UGA and Florida agreed to swap.[su_spacer size=”40″]
“We’re thrilled to host another NCAA Regional this coming season,” said UGA coach Danna Durante. “It will be exciting for our fans to see high-level gymnastics in a postseason setting, and I know the other teams and individuals coming in will enjoy the experience of competing here in Athens.”[su_spacer size=”40″]
