The first session, which begins at 1:00 p.m. PT will feature the top-four seeds Utah, Oregon State, Stanford and UCLA.

Washington is coming off of a second place finish last weekend to OSU at home, but beat out the Falcons from Seattle Pacific.  The Huskies scored a 195. 375, their highest total since they faced the UCLA Bruins at home on Feb. 16.

All-arounders Aliza Vaccher and Allison Northey will once again lead the Huskies as they look to solidify their spot in the NCAA Regional Championship that they are hosting on April 5 at 4:00 p.m. PT.

Freshman Janae Janik who suffered a foot injury while UW was on the road at Utah at the end of February has battled back and will be featured in both the bar line-up and beam line-up.

The Washington specialists are looking stronger then ever and are ready to make a statement. Junior McKenzie Fechter will be back on floor for only the second time this season and fellow juniors Jackie McCartin and Madison Podlucky along with freshmen Alexandra Yacalis, Kaitlyn Duranczyk and Faith Morrison will provide the all-arounders with the support they need.  

Last year at the Pac-12 Championships, which were hosted by Oregon State in Corvallis, Ore., the GymDawgs came out at the top of their session with a team score of 195.525 placing them fifth overall.
