Beavers Finish Third; Three Advance to NCAAs
The following is from an NCAA.org document, it seems to indicate that the placement of all individuals is by random draw, so Chelsea, Maddie, and Kaytianna, could all be in one preliminary session or be split between two.
All-Around. A random draw will be used to place half of the first-place all-arounders from regionals into Group A and half into Group B. The same procedure will be followed for the second-place all-arounders. A random draw will be used to determine placement into either Semifinal I or II.
Individual Event Specialists. If any event specialist qualifies (i.e., gymnast who won an event during regional competition and is not a member of a team or an all-around competitor), then she will compete after the all-around qualifier and be placed into a semifinal and rotation using the following procedures:
One qualifier on an event ... place qualifier in rotation III and draw for semifinal;
Two qualifiers on the same event (compete in rotation III) ... draw to place one qualifier in each semifinal;
Three qualifiers on the same event ... follow procedures for two qualifiers, placing the third qualifier in rotation IV and draw for semifinal; and ...
Four qualifiers on the same event ... draw to place one qualifier in each semifinal in rotations III and IV.
