ITHACA, N.Y., April 8, 2022 – After two sessions of preliminary competition on the first day of the 2022 USA Gymnastics Women’s Collegiate National Championships, the Air Force Falcons, Brown Bears, Lindenwood Lions and Texas Woman’s Pioneers are set to battle it out for national bragging rights Saturday at Cornell’s Newman Arena in Ithaca, N.Y. In total, eight teams along with individual qualifiers from three additional universities were in action Friday with the all-around title and spots Sunday’s individual apparatus finals also on the line.

The Bears advanced to the team final in the top spot with a 194.925 followed by the Pioneers who similarly emerged from the day’s second session behind a combined 194.700. Air Force (194.550) and Lindenwood (193.800) punched their tickets to Day 2 during the afternoon session with the latter edging the defending champions from Southeast Missouri State by a tenth of a point. The team final will kick off tomorrow at 7 p.m. ET with Air Force starting on vault, TWU on uneven bars, Brown on balance beam and Lindenwood on floor exercise.
