UCLA Gymnastics Releases 2021 Regular Season Schedule
The 2021 regular season schedule for the UCLA Gymnastics team has been released, days ahead of the season opener on Jan. 23 against Arizona State. The Bruins have eight dual meets scheduled, including four in Pauley Pavilion presented by Wescom. Four meets have been selected for television - three on Pac-12 Networks and the Feb. 19 meet at Utah on ESPNU.
The Bruins, under the direction of second year head coach Chris Waller, begin the season two weeks after several other teams kicked off competition. UCLA's opener against Arizona State (1-1) will be televised live on Pac-12 Networks at 2pm PT. The Bruins will compete on the road the following week at Arizona on Sunday, Jan. 31 at 1pm MT.
UCLA's February slate includes a mid-week Feb. 10 home contest against an opponent to be named later, followed by back-to-back weeks on the road against Washington (Feb. 14) and Utah (Feb. 19). The Bruins close the month with a home meet against Oregon State on Feb. 27 at 11am.
In March, UCLA will compete at California on Mar. 6 before wrapping up the regular season finale on Mar. 13 against San Jose State at home.
The Bruins were ranked No. 7 in the preseason polls and return All-Americans Nia Dennis, Norah Flatley and Margzetta Frazier. Last year's squad ended the 2020 season ranked No. 3 in the nation.
