BERKELEY – The University of California has been selected as a 2015 NCAA Women’s Gymnastics Regional Championship host, the NCAA announced this week.

“I am thrilled that Cal has been chosen as a regional championship site for 2015, and that the NCAA recognizes that the Bay Area and Cal have so much to offer gymnastics fans and visiting teams from across the nation,” said California head coach Justin Howell. “The selection will continue to help solidify and draw attention to the strength of our program.”

For the third time in program history, Cal is one of six regional host sites, joining Auburn, Oklahoma, West Virginia, Iowa State and Ohio State in 2015. The Golden Bears last hosted the NCAA West Regionals in 2007, and in 1992 a third-place finish in Berkeley propelled the program to its first and only trip to the NCAA Women’s Gymnastics National Championship.

The regional site selection is Cal’s second opportunity to play host to a major gymnastics event in as many years, as the Bears are also set to host the Pac-12 Gymnastics Championships this season on March 22, 2014 in Haas Pavilion.

The selections come as part of a new NCAA championship bid process that created the largest host site announcement ever, spanning 82 championships across a four-year cycle. Previously, selection announcements varied by sport. This process now gives the NCAA and host sites more time to plan each championship experience. The regional sites for NCAA gymnastics competition through 2018 were also announced today.

Cal has sent gymnasts to regional competition in 29 seasons, including 18 times as a team, since the NCAA began sponsoring women’s gymnastics in 1982. In 2013, Cal earned its first regional berth as a team since 2007, finishing sixth at the Corvallis Regional hosted by Oregon State in Corvallis, Ore.
