COLUMBIA — The Missouri gymnastics team earned its 11th consecutive NCAA regional berth Monday and is set to compete on April 7 in Fayetteville, Ark., against No. 3 UCLA, No. 10 Arkansas, No. 15 Boise State, New Hampshire and Maryland.

"It couldn't have happened better," Tigers coach Rob Drass said in a release. "We have seen each of the teams ranked ahead of us this year, so we know what to expect. We are excited about the opportunity to move on to the National Championships."

In addition to the six competing teams, there will be five all-around competitors from non-qualifying schools as well as individual event qualifiers. The top-two finishing teams and all-around competitors will advance to the NCAA National Championship scheduled for April 20 to 22 in Duluth, Ga. The top two event finalists from a non-qualifying team will also advance to the national championship in that event only.
