CEDAR CITY, Utah - April 4 - Southern Utah University gymnast Alyssa Click will head to the NCAA Regionals this weekend hosted by the University of Utah. Click punched her ticket to the competition as an individual qualifier on the balance beam.
Click will enter the meet averaging a 9.917 on beam over the course of her past three meets. The three-meet stretch included a pair of 9.925's against Boise State and at Brigham Young, marking the third highest scores in school history on balance beam for a Thunderbird gymnast.
The Vancouver, Washington defended her Western Athletic Conference bar title two weeks ago with a school-record 9.925 and led the balance beam with a 9.900 until the final rotation. Click finished in second place at the WAC Championships on beam, earning her second first-team all-WAC citation in the process.
Click is scheduled to rotate with San Jose State on Saturday night and will likely follow the Spartans' top gymnast and reigning WAC Gymnast of the Year, Thomasina Wallace. SJSU will rotate to the balance beam during the fifth rotation. Click can qualify for a spot at the NCAA National Championships by taking the individual title on the balance beam.
In addition to San Jose State, Click will also face gymnasts from Iowa State, Nebraska, Utah, Minnesota, Arizona State, Utah State and Brigham Young. The meet is scheduled to begin at 6:00 p.m. (MT) with live stats available online at www.suutbirds.com and a free video feed online at www.utahutes.com.
