The Golden Bear gymnastics team is headed back to Corvallis, Ore. for its NCAA Gymnastics Regional competition. Cal will join No. 4 Georgia, No. 10 Oregon State, No. 16 Arkansas, No. 21 Boise State and No. 28 Arizona State in Gill Coliseum at the Corvallis Regional as the six teams compete for a spot at the NCAA Gymnastics National Championship semifinals on April 19 in Los Angeles. Meet time is set for 4 p.m.

"We've got a tough field with Oregon State, the Pac-12 champions, at home, along with No. 4 Georgia and No. 16 Arkansas who will give everybody a run for their money," said California head coach Justin Howell.

Cal just visited Corvallis for a trip to the Pac-12 Gymnastics Championships on Saturday, where the team finished seventh with a 195.075. Fellow regional competitors Oregon State claimed the title with a 197.850 and Arizona State finished eighth with a 193.425.

"It's a huge factor to be going to a place that is comfortable and familiar for the team. It just makes it that much more like home," Howell said. "The energy will be high in the arena, but it has great equipment and is a great facility and draws a good crowd."

The Golden Bears will begin their competition on the balance beam and continue in the Olympic order to floor, vault and the uneven bars. There will be two bye events for a break in the action, one before floor and one before bars.

The top two teams and top two all-around competitors (who are not on an advancing team) from each of the six regional sites will receive an automatic berth to the national championships hosted by UCLA at Pauley Pavilion in Los Angeles from April 19-21.

"We're going into the meet with the same mindset we have every meet - to be one day better," Howell said. "Even if the team doesn't advance, this will be a great way for our seniors to finish out their season and it's validation for our training plan that we've been working on all year. We're just going to go in and have a great time."

This is the first regional competition the Golden Bears have been selected for since the 2007 season.
