BATON ROUGE – The LSU gymnastics team, the Southeastern Conference champions, heads into NCAA postseason competition as the third-ranked team in the nation with a National Qualifying Score (NQS) of 197.810, RoadtoNationals.com released Monday.

The Tigers finished with the second-highest NQS in school history. In addition to the No. 3 team ranking, LSU ended the regular season ranked fourth on vault, bars, beam and floor.

The NQS is ascertained by taking a team’s top six scores – three of which must be from road/neutral meets – dropping the high score and averaging the remaining five scores.

LSU’s meet scores counting toward its NQS are: 198.175 at Arizona, 197.900 at SEC Championships, 198.450 at Alabama, 198.150 at home against Oregon State, 197.900 at home against Georgia and 197.650 at home against Missouri.

The squad must drop the 198.175 at Arizona as it’s the highest of the six. The remaining five scores average out to a 197.810 for third in the nation behind Oklahoma (198.115) and UCLA (198.010). The Tigers are ahead of Florida (197.760) and Denver (197.545).

LSU will host the NCAA Baton Rouge Regional April 4-6 inside the PMAC. The Tigers will find out who will be competing for a spot at the NCAA Championships at 4 p.m. CT Monday at NCAA.com.
