DeKALB — The gymnastics team ended its historic season Saturday at the NCAA Regionals in Fayetville, Arkansas with junior Ashley Potts coming .025 total points short of making it to NCAA Nationals.

“Ashley had a great meet [Saturday],” said Head Coach Sam Morreale. “She missed qualifying for Nationals by .025 so she was right there in the hunt.”

Gymnastics end season at NCAA Regionals

Potts, who had a combined score of 39.150, said being that close to Nationals and not making it hurts right now but will fuel the fire for her heading into next season.

“Right now I’m a little annoyed by [not making Nationals],” Potts said. “But it will make me work harder next year to not have that happen again and actually make it [to Nationals].”

Four members of the gymnastics team competed in regionals, including Potts, junior Katherine Prentice, seniors Jamyra Carter and Courtney Dowdell with junior Andie Van Voorhis traveling as an alternate.

Carter and Potts both recorded a 9.875 on the parallel bars to tie for ninth place.

The Central Michigan gymnastics team is heading to NCAA regionals for the ninth consecutive year.

The Chippewas will travel to Fayetteville, Arkansas and will be joined by Utah, Denver, California Berkley, Auburn and host Arkansas. The meet will start at 5 p.m. on Saturday, April 1.

CMU is coming off a third place finish in the Mid-American Champions Championships and went three consecutive meets scoring above a 196. These are the only 196 plus scores the Chippewas have posted this season. They were .4 points away from winning the Mid-American Championships.

Head coach Jerry Reighard is treating Regionals like a normal meet.

“We have been (to Regionals) enough to where we know what to expect and what is expected of us,” Reinhard said.

CMU will start on the floor, which is the Chippewas’ strongest event.

“We’re optimistic that starting on our best event will help us,” Reighard said. “We know we’re going to have our highest quality routines. The scoring won’t depend on us. It will depend on how the judges score.”
