MSU Gymnastics to Compete at NCAA Regionals
April 4, 2014
EAST LANSING, Mich. - Three Spartans will represent Michigan State this weekend at the NCAA Regional Championships in Baton Rouge, La. Held on the campus of LSU, MSU will be represented by junior Alina Cartwright and sophomore Lisa Burt in the all around competition, while freshman Elena Lagoski will compete in the floor exercise. Both Cartwright and Burt will be making their second-straight trip to the regional meet.
“We are very proud of the three gymnasts who will be representing MSU at the regional meet,” said head coach Kathie Klages. “They competed well throughout the season and earned the right to be here. Though, I know they will miss their teammates and would rather have the entire team here. It is difficult to compete as an individual when you have had a team for the entire season. However, they are peaking right now and have looked fabulous in practices over the last two weeks. I can't wait to see what they do in the competition floor. I hope the gymnasts put it all out on the floor and leave this competition with no regrets. If they do that, no what matter what happens with placement and moving on to nationals, they can be very proud of their effort.”
Events are scheduled to begin at 3 p.m. ET on Saturday, April 5 at the Maravich Center.
