ATHENS, Ga. – Yale continued its post-season in front of thousands of fans at Georgia's Stegeman Center. Yale sent one Bulldog to the meet for the individual NCAA competition, senior Jessica Wang. Wang competed on the uneven bars. 

Wang opened up the meet, competing as the anchor in the lineup after No. 1 Oklahoma and earned an 8.850. The first day of team qualifications were as follows: Oklahoma (198.300), Cal (196.750), NC State (195.400) and Maryland (194.650). The Sooners and the Bears joined the top two teams from session I – Georgia and Kentucky – and competed on day two for one of two spots who advance to the NCAA Championships.

In day two of team finals, the Bears finished in third place behind Oklahoma (198.475) and Georgia (198.050). Cal took third over Kentucky (197.600). No. 1 Oklahoma and host No. 8 Georgia advanced to the 2019 Women's National Collegiate Gymnastics Championships with their performances during team finals.

The Bulldogs will conclude their season at the USA Gymnastics National Collegiate Championships beginning next Friday, April 13 at Texas Woman's University.
