As a rule change from previous years, this year, the top three seeds in each session (in order of ranking) selected the event on which they wished to begin from the available events, following the Olympic order thereafter.

Team regional qualifying scores are calculated on the teams’ six best regular-season meet scores. Three of these scores must be from an away competition. The highest score is eliminated then the remaining five scores are averaged.

Tickets for the event, to be held at Maples Pavilion on campus at Stanford University this coming Saturday, March 18, are still available here.
