TUCSON, Ariz. — Arizona Gymnastics earned the No. 24 ranking in today's release of the Women's Collegiate Gymnastics Association (WCGA) preseason poll.

The Wildcats No. 24 preseason ranking is the best mark earned by the program under head coach John Court. 

"We have shown a lot of growth and commitment inside our program and we are excited to be ranked to start the 2021 season," Court said. "It's an exciting time for our team — our student athletes continue to work hard, be patient, and excel through the obstacles."

The GymCats return nine letterwinners from last season's squad that finished the year ranked No. 27 by Road to Nationals, their highest end of season ranking since closing out the 2016-17 campaign ranked No. 26. The Wildcats ended last season ranked among the nation's Top 25 programs in both vault and bars, earning No. 23 rankings in both events.

Among the nine returners are sophomore Malia Hargrove and junior MacKinzie Kane, two standouts who competed in all 11 meets last year. Junior Kennedi Davis and sophomores Zaza Brovedani and Libby Orman also return after competing in 10 of the Wildcats 11 meets in 2019-20.

Arizona's 2020-21 schedule is expected to be released in the coming weeks.
