Junior gymnast Alyssa Nocella scored a 39.100 all-around score at the NCAA Regionals on Saturday, registering the second-best score in program history.

Nocella finished 0.25 points away from qualifying for nationals as she finished tied for sixth in the all-around.

She scored a 9.850 on floor — enough for an 11th place tie — while also scoring a 9.800 on vault, 9.700 on beam and 9.750 on bars.

The Regionals performance capped off her season that included First Team All-MAC for the second consecutive season.

Nocella has reached Regionals in each of her first three seasons at BGSU as she prepares for her senior season.
