TWU Hosts National Gymnastics Championships

3/12/04


DENTON — The best USA Gymnastics collegiate athletes converge on Denton April 8-10 to determine who will be a national champion. Texas Woman's University, in conjunction with the Greater Denton Sports Commission, is hosting the national USAG championships for the second consecutive year.

Nearly 5,000 people attended the national championships last year. TWU officials are planning for stellar attendance this spring when male and female gymnasts representing 16 teams from across the country compete in TWU’s Kitty Magee Arena, located at Bell Avenue and Administration Drive.

"This three-day event will be a lot of fun and we invite everyone to come be a part of the excitement," said TWU Athletics Director Chalese Connors. “The TWU Pioneers have won this event seven times and are looking forward to not only defending their team title, but claiming their eighth one at home in Denton."

Tickets are $28 for an adult event pass and $20 for a student (age 7-17) event pass. Day passes are $10 for adults and $8 for students. Children age 6 and younger are admitted free. A $3 service charge will be added to all credit card purchases.

“The USAG collegiate championships brought national attention to the Denton community in 2003 and the Greater Denton Sports Commission and TWU hope to build on that this year,” said George Young, chairman of the GDSC. “The championships are a first-class event. It’s a great opportunity to see top athletes from across the country competing against each other.”

To purchase tickets by credit card, call (940) 382-7895 or (888) 381-1818. Tickets can be purchased in person at the Denton Chamber of Commerce, 414 Parkway, and in the TWU Athletics Office, located on the second floor of Pioneer Hall (northeast corner of Bell Avenue and Administration Drive). Ticket information also is available at www.dentonsports.com/Gymnastics_Info.htm.
