Anna Li Out For Sunday's Gymnastics Meet
March 12, 2010
Senior Anna Li will not compete in Sunday's gymnastics meet against Cal State Fullerton and Michigan State due to an ankle injury that had been nagging her and was aggravated at the Georgia meet last weekend.
Li continues to make daily progress towards healing and is expected to be back by the Bruins' next meet, which is Mar. 27 at the Pac-10 Championships.
UCLA head coach Valorie Kondos Field said, 'After discussing the situation with Anna, there really wasn't much of a decision to be made. The team's success in the championship season, she has agreed, is more important than competing in her last regular season home meet. Fortunately, she will able to compete one more time in Pauley Pavilion, since we will be hosting NCAA Regionals on April 10.'
The Bruin regular season finale on Sunday will begin at 2 pm in Pauley Pavilion. In addition to honoring Li on senior day, UCLA's 2000 NCAA Championship squad will be honored at the conclusion of the meet.
