GAINESVILLE, Fla.  - The No. 2 Florida gymnastics team heads Morgantown, West Virginia, for NCAA Regional action. The NCAA Gymnastics Committee unveiled the fields for each of the six 2015 NCAA Region Championships sites Monday. NCAA Morgantown Regional competition is set for Saturday, April 4 at 4 p.m. ET in the WVU Coliseum<http://www.wvusports.com/page.cfm?section=7925>.

The field for the Morgantown Gymnastics Regional includes No. 2 Florida, No. 11 Stanford, No. 14 Illinois-Champaign, No. 19 Arkansas, No. 25 New Hampshire and No. 36 West Virginia.

The top two teams and the top two all-around competitors (who are not on an advancing team) from each region site advances to the NCAA Championships, set for April 17-19 at the Fort Worth Convention Center<http://www.fortworth.com/meetings/convention-center/> in Fort Worth, Texas.

Last year, UF won the program's 14th NCAA Regional title in University Park, Pennsylvania, to advance to its 32nd NCAA Championships. Florida won its second consecutive NCAA title in 2014, sharing the title with Oklahoma as each team posted a NCAA Super Six record total of 198.175.

Each of the six regions have three teams among the nation's top 18, with one team each from the nation's No. 1-6, No. 7-12, and No. 13-18 ranking positions. The final three spots in each regional were filled from teams ranked 19-36 by RQS. The committee tried to keep those teams within their own region as much as possible.

Among the Morgantown Regional field are three teams which advanced to the 2014 NCAA Championships - Florida, Illinois and Stanford. Arkansas will be looking to return to the NCAA Championships after missing the 2014 event. New Hampshire will look for its first NCAA berth since 1994 while West Virginia last advanced in 1999.

Florida will open regional competition on the uneven bars.

In addition, five all-around competitors (who are not on a qualifying team) and one individual specialist per event advance to each of the six regions. The all-around competitors and event specialists came from within the region. Bridgeport junior Sasha Tsikhanovich<http://www.ubknights.com/sports/wgym/2013-14/bios/tsikhanovich_sasha_iaeo> will be paired with the Gators for regional competition.

For the second consecutive season, the seeding determined at the time of regional selections will be maintained throughout the championships. Standard bracketing procedures will be followed with teams seeded 1, 4, 5, 8, 9 and 12 placed on the left side of the bracket and teams seeded 2, 3, 6, 7, 10 and 11 placed on the right side of the bracket.
