Cal Heads To Pac-12 Championship

Mar 16, 2022

BERKELEY - The 10th-ranked California women's gymnastics will begin postseason play as they compete for the Pac-12 Championship on Saturday night. The Bears will travel to West Valley City, Utah for the Pac-12 Championship at the Maverik Center. Cal will be in the night session along with Utah, Arizona State and Oregon State, which will start at 6 p.m. MT/5 PM PT.
 
All four teams in the night session tied for the regular season Pac-12 Championship as they all went 5-2 in Pac-12 conference play. By winning a share of the Pac-12 title, Cal captured their first-ever conference championship.
 
Last year at the Pac-12 Championship, Cal put up their best-ever Pac-12 score at 197.375 and had their best-ever finish as they took second place behind the hometown Utes.
 
Cal comes into the meet after a fantastic Senior Day meet on Sunday. The Bears put up the second-highest team total in school history at 197.900. They also set a program record on floor at 49.600. They also had the second-best bars score (49.625) and fourth-best beam score (49.450) in Cal history. Maya Bordas had the fifth-highest all-around score in school history at 39.600, while Milan Clausi was named Pac-12 Specialist of the Week after recording three event wins across Cal's two weekend meets and setting or tying career highs on beam and floor. Clausi scored a 9.925 on beam and 9.95 on floor and won both events vs. Iowa on Sunday.

The Bears did that by setting a program record on floor at 49.600. They received four 9.90+ floor scores on the day, all from seniors in their last home meet. Cal also recorded the second-best bars score in school history with 49.625 as four Bears went 9.925+. If that wasn't enough, Cal had the fourth-best beam score in school history at 49.450, which was just .050 from the school record.
 
CLAUSI NAMED SPECIALIST OF THE WEEK
Milan Clausi was named the Pac-12 Specialist of the Week on 3/15. She recorded three first place finishes and a second-place finish in two meets. At Ohio State, Clausi took first place on the vault with a 9.85 score. She also recorded top-five finishes on both the beam and floor as she notched 9.875 on beam and 9.90 on floor. In her final home meet at Haas Pavilion, Clausi set a personal best on beam with a 9.925 as she took first place. She tied her career high on floor with a 9.95 score and also won the event.
 
PAC-12 CHAMPIONSHIP
Cal won the first six meets of the year and started 5-0 in Pac-12 meets. After defeating No. 3 Utah, the Bears put themselves in a position to claim a share of the Pac-12 Regular Season Championship.
