TWU Hosts National Gymnastics Championships

3/18/03


DENTON — The best of USA Gymnastics collegiate gymnasts converge on Denton April 17-19 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 first time since 1995.

Nearly 5,000 people attended the national championships both in 1994 and 1995 when the event was held in Denton. TWU officials are planning for stellar attendance this spring when male and female gymnasts from 16 teams from across the country compete in Kitty Magee Arena.

"I am very happy to have the opportunity to welcome student-athletes, family members and friends from all over the country to Denton," said Chalese Connors, TWU athletics director. "This three-day event will be a lot of fun and we invite everyone to come be a part of the excitement."

"The mission of the Greater Denton Sports Commission is to attract, stimulate and promote sports entertainment and activities in the Greater Denton Area," said Steve Selby, co-chairman of the GDSC. "Through our co-sponsorship of the USAG championships with TWU, we are achieving all the points of our mission."

Events get underway the afternoon of April 17 with the women's team semifinals. The men's and women's team finals will be April 18 beginning at 1 p.m. Individual competition, both men's and women's, starts at 5 p.m. on Saturday, April 19.

Tickets are $20 for an adult event pass and $15 for a student (age 7-17) event pass. Day passes are $8 for adults and $6 for students. Children age 6 and younger are admitted free. For tickets, call (940) 898-2373 or (888) 381-1818. Ticket information also is available at www.dentonsports.com/Gymnastics_Info.htm.
