Ball State sent two gymnasts -- Nicole Allen and Brittney Emmons -- to the NCAA Regional in Tuscaloosa, Ala., April 2. 

Allen and Emmons each competed as individuals in the all-around competition.

Allen placed 21st on the vault with a 9.75, 28th on the bars with a 9.725, 41st on the beam with a 9.050 and 21st on the floor with a 9.775.  Allen finished 19th overall in the all-around with a score of 38.300.

Emmons was 15th in the all-around competition with a 38.775.  She placed 28th on the vault with a 9.725, 35th on the bars with a 9.675, 35th on the beam with a 9.650 and 31st on the floor with a 9.725.

Ball State fourth-year head coach Nadalie Walsh led the Cardinals to a fourth place finish at the Mid-American Conference Championships, which marked the best placing for the team since the 2007 season.  In addition, Ball State posted a 3-3 MAC record, which marked the most league victories since the 2002 season.  Ball State managed a team score of 194.500 in a meet at Kent State, which was the 11th best score in school history.

Allen and Emmons led the Cardinals this season.  Allen is coming off her MAC Championships performance where she led Ball State and tied for the individual title on the vault with a career high 9.900 and on the floor with a 9.875, which tied her career best mark.  Allen's two victories marks the first time a Ball State gymnast has accomplished that feat since Laura Szczepanski won the bars and the beam in 2000. 

Allen placed sixth in the all-around with a career high 38.950 mark, while Brittney Emmons tied for seventh in the all-around with a 38.900.  Emmons finished third on the vault with a 9.850, tied for eighth on the balance beam with a 9.725 and tied for 15th on the floor with a 9.775.
