PROVO, Utah – Heading into its final regular season meet, the BYU women’s gymnastics team will travel to Seattle for a tri-meet vs. Washington and Seattle Pacific at Alaska Airlines Arena on Friday.

“This is a meet where we can just go out there and give it our best without having to worry about anything,” head coach Brad Cattermole said. “We feel like we are in a good position to make regionals no matter what happens. It will be fun to just go out there and see what we can do.”

BYU is coming off a season-best 195.875, it’s highest score since the 2008 season. The Cougars are currently ranked 29th in the extended rankings and are positioned for a likely NCAA regional berth, a goal the team has had since barely missing out last year after 11 straight postseason appearances.

With a current regional qualifying score of 195.320, BYU matches up well with Washington’s 195.520. Seattle Pacific has work left to do and will be looking for a big score with an RQS of 191.820.

The meet is set to begin at 7 p.m. PST. Once the meet begins, fans can follow live scores and streaming video on Washington's website.
