2017 NCAA Regional Assignments Announced

The 2017 NCAA Regionals assignments are set and the top 36 teams will be competing for a spot at NCAA Championships being held April 14-15 in St. Louis, MO.

All six regional competitions will be held on April 1, 2017. The top two teams and the top two all-around competitors (who are not on an advancing team) from each regional will receive an automatic berth to the national championships. The top two teams from the Champaign, Fayetteville and Seattle regionals will compete in one of the semifinals, and the top two teams from the Gainesville, Lincoln and Morgantown regionals will compete in the other semifinal. In addition, the event winners at each regional site will advance to the national championships (in that event only) if they are not part of a qualifying team or an all-around qualifier.
