Four Tigers Compete as Individuals at NCAA Regionals

Gainesville, Fla. – Four Tigers wrapped up their seasons on Friday night, competing as individuals in the second session of the Second Round of the NCAA Gainesville Regional. 

Clemson’s Rebecca Wells, Molly Arnold, Kielyn McCright and Molly Arnold each tallied a regular-season NQS high enough to be selected to NCAA Regionals as individual competitors. Each athlete was paired with a competing team to perform alongside them during a rotation.

Three of the four Tigers competed in the first rotation, with Kielyn McCright competing alongside Iowa State and earning a 9.85 on her beam routine. Brie Clark, competing alongside Georgia, stumbled on her final pass, finishing her final floor routine of the year with a 9.100. Rebecca Wells, competing as an all-around with Iowa State, put up a solid bars score in the first rotation with a 9.825. 

In the second rotation, Wells continued her solid season on beam, earning a 9.900, while Molly Arnold, competing with Georgia, recovered from an early-routine music snafu to score a 9.85. 

In the third rotation, Arnold stuck her vault landing to earn a 9.90, her highest vault score since March 16 at UCLA. Wells also turned in a 9.85 on her floor routine to give her a 29.575 all-around score heading into her final rotation.

Wells, as the final competitor of the night, stuck her vault landing and earned a 9.825 for a 39.400 all-around final score. 

#TeamOne closes the book on their inaugural season with a second place finish in the ACC, four sold-out home meets, the conference Coach of the Year, the conference Newcomer of the Year, an NCAA Tournament appearance and four individual NCAA Regional competitors.
