NEW HAVEN, Conn. - This week, Alina Liao and Miki Seltzer were notified of their qualification to the NCAA Northeast Regional Championships, to be held Saturday, Apr. 14 at the University of Michigan.
Liao, a sophomore, has qualified in the all-around for the second consecutive year. With an average score of 37.877, Liao has earned ECAC Gymnast of the Week twice this season. She placed third in the all-around at the Ivy Classic and third on floor at last weekend's ECAC Championships.
This is also senior Seltzer's second trip to Regionals, having qualified on vault and floor last year. This year she will be competing on floor. Locked in a close battle for one position, Seltzer's career high 9.85 at the ECAC Championships was enough to clinch the spot and earn her the conference floor title.
