The Bears are one more step from truly becoming “Golden.”
Cal’s women’s gymnastics squad secured a trip to the NCAA Women’s Gymnastics Championships over the weekend with a regional score of 196.725, good for second place and the best in school history in such a meet.
Meet us in St. Louis, won't you?

It’s the second time the Bears have reached the championships in the last three years, with the other coming in 2016. Cal finished seventh out of 12 teams during that trip to the championships, which took place in Fort Worth, Texas. Prior to the 2016 berth, the Bears hadn’t reached the championships in 24 years.
The Bears’ best event was floor, where senior Toni-Ann Williams (9.925) and freshman Kyana George (9.9) led the way as the team posted a combined score of 49.4. Vault finished with a 49.175, with senior Arianna Robinson’s 9.875 leading Cal in the event.
The Bears will compete in the championships April 20-21 at Chaifetz Arena in St. Louis.
