SAN FRANCISCO-- With five weekends of the regular season complete and five still to go, five Pac-12 gymnastics team are ranked among the top-20 teams in the nation: No. 4 UTAH, No. 5 UCLA, No. 12 OREGON STATE, No. 15 CALIFORNIA, and No. 18 WASHINGTON.

No. 4 UTAH came away with a win in last weekend's battle of undefeated teams, handing No. 15 CALIFORNIA their first loss of the season. UTAH is now the only remaining undefeated team in the Conference.

Once again this coming weekend, all 8 teams are in action on Pac-12 Networks (see schedule below for specific network).

UCLA's freshman gold medalist Madison Kocian was named both Pac-12 Freshman and Gymnast of the Week  this week after winning the all-around for the fourth meet in a row.

Six different gymnasts from four different schools have won Pac-12 weekly awards this season: five of those six are former Olympic competitors or alternates. Gold medalists Madison Kocian and Kyla Ross of UCLA have picked up weekly awards, as have former Team USA alternates MyKayla Skinner of UTAH and Elizabeth Price of STANFORD. Additionally, CALIFORNIA's Toni-Ann Williams was a member of the Jamaican Olympic team in 2016. The sixth weekly award recipient, UCLA's Christine Peng-Peng Lee, only barely missed her Olympic chance, withdrawing from the 2012 Canadian Olympic team at the last minute due to injury.

UTAH freshman MyKayla Skinner continues to preform at a very high level, maintaining her place as the second-best all-arounder in the nation. Four other Pac-12 gymnasts from three different schools are also ranked in the top-25 nationally in the all-around: 14. Baely Rowe of UTAH, 19. Madeline Gardiner of OREGON STATE, 22. Madison Kocian of UCLA, and No. 24 Kaytianna McMillan of OREGON STATE.

OREGON STATE will host their annual DAM Cancer Meet on Saturday in Corvallis. The day will include a brunch and silent auction to benefit The Corvallis Clinic’s Project H.E.R. (Help Enlightenment Resources). Gymnasts Mariana Colussi-Pelaez and Jaime Law will also be cutting their hair the night before the meet to support cancer patients. With UTAH coming to town to take on the Beavers, the meet will be a high-profile matchup between top-12 opponents and will air live on Pac-12 Mountain and Pac-12 Oregon.
