Jayne Finst Selected on Balance Beam for Northeast Regional

March 26, 2002

Brown sophomore Jayne Finst (Delray Beach, Florida) will represent Brown gymnastics as the Northeast Regional on the balance beam. The Regionals will be held at Penn State University on April 6, 2002.

The school and Ivy record holder on the Beam (9.925), she was the individual Ivy Champion on the balance beam for the second consecutive year this season. She also broke the school record in the all-around with a 38.675 and helped the team break the team score record (190.600).

Six teams, five all-around competitors (who are not on a qualifying team), and one individual event specialist per event (who has a minimum qualifying score of 9.4) were named to each of the six regions. The top two teams and the top two all-around competitors (who are not on an advancing team) from each region will receive an automatic berth to the national championships in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, April 18-20, hosted by the University of Alabama, Tuscaloosa.

In addition, the event winners at the regional championships will advance to the national championships (in that event only) if they are not part of a qualifying team or the all-around qualifiers.
