Three members of the Air Force women's gymnastics team will travel to Denver, Colo., to compete at the NCAA Central Regional Championships on Saturday, April 3.

Robison has the fourth-best all-around score by an unattached competitor with a RQS of 38.470 and Lewis recorded the fifth-highest score (RQS: 38.420).
Senior Erin Maguire (Pocatello, Idaho) is an alternate for the all-around, as well as an alternate to serve as an event specialist on the balance beam and floor exercise. Maguire has a Regional Qualifying Score of 38.055 in the all-around, while posting a RQS of 9.830 on the balance beam and a 9.880 on the floor exercise.
The Falcons will join the competing teams of Stanford, Washington, Denver, Iowa, Minnesota and Southern Utah, as well as individual competitors from Utah State, for a chance to advance to the NCAA Championships.
The top two teams and the top two all-around competitors (who are not on an advancing team) from each regional will earn a berth to the 2004 NCAA Women's Gymnastics Championships, which will be held April 15-17, in Los Angeles, Calif.
