WALNUT CREEK, Calif. -- In a balloting of the head coaches prior to the 2011 Pac-10 Gymnastics Championships, OREGON STATE's junior Leslie Mak was voted Pac-10 Gymnast of the Year. UCLA's freshman Olivia Courtney was voted the Pac-10 Freshman/Newcomer of the Year, while Oregon's State head coach Tanya Chaplin was voted Pac-10 Coach of the Year for the second-consecutive year.  Mak becomes the fourth Oregon State gymnast to earn the prestigious award with Beaver greats Mandi Rodriguez (2009), Chari Knight (1992 & 1994), and Joy Selig (1991) winning the award previously.



Commissioner Larry Scott announced the 2011 All Pac-10 Gymnastics Team today as well. The All Pac-10 team is determined by a combination of 50 percent regional qualifying score (entire season composite) and 50 percent Conference Championships score. The All-Conference first team consists of the top six all-around competitors, plus the top three competitors in each individual event who are not among the all-around honorees. The second team All-Pac-10 consists of the top two all-arounders who were not named to the first team (as all-arounders or in an event), after such the top two gymnasts from each event who were not yet named to the first team or the second team would be selected to the second team.



Five Pac-10 gymnastics teams, as well as three all-around competitors and two event specialists, have been selected to compete in the 2011 NCAA Women's Gymnastics Regional Championships April 2. OREGON STATE, UCLA and STANFORD received No. 1 seeds, while ARIZONA and WASHINGTON also qualified for the regionals.
