Cape Girardeau, Mo. (March 25, 2002) - Senior Michelle Walker and sophomore Ashley Godwin have qualified for the South Central Regional Gymnastics Championships in Tempe, Arizona April 6. The event will be hosted by Arizona State University.

Teams competing in this region will include UCLA, Arizona, Brigham Young, Arizona State, Illinois-Chicago, and Cal State Fullerton.

Godwin will qualify as an all-arounder. She had a regional qualifying score of 38.815, and was the third qualifier of five that each region allows. She will be joined by Ashley Williams of Illinois, Luci Romberg of Texas Woman's University, Kristina Campos of Northern Illinois University, and Jana Gallagher of Illinois. Amy Cole will be the first alternate in the competition should any of the competitors not make the meet.

Walker will be representing the region in the Floor Exercise. She had the highest regional qualifying score (9.830) of any athlete not competing as part of a team or in the all-around.

Both athletes will head down, along with their coaches to Tempe next Thursday to compete in the tournament. The top two teams and the top two all-around competitors (who are not on an advancing team) from each regional will receive an automatic berth to the national championships in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, April 18-20, hosted by the University of Alabama, Tuscaloosa.

In addition, the event winners at the regional championships will advance to the national championships (in that event only) if they are not part of a qualifying team or the all-around qualifiers.
