Bears finished 5th with a total score of 425.7, so the team does not advance to the final session. The three teams that advanced were Oklahoma (440.0), Stanfurd (433.55), and Illinois (432.85).
On individual basis, however, redshirt senior co-captain Donothan Bailey (86.250) and sophomore Kyle Zemeir (85.550) both qualified for the all-around competition at the NCAA Championships.

Top 3 out of a field of No. 1 Oklahoma, No. 4 Stanford, No. 5 Illinois, No. 8 Iowa, No. 12 William & Mary, and of course your No.9 California Golden Bears will advance to the NCAA Championships. The Bears are competing in the first session which starts at 10 AM today. Three other teams from the later session will join the top 3 from the morning into the NCAA Championships. The second session consists of host No.2 Michigan, No.3 Ohio State, No.6 Penn State, No.7 Minnesota, No.10 Air Force, and No.11 Nebraska.
In addition to the top 3 teams from each session, the top three all-around competitors not on one of the qualifying teams, plus the top three individuals on each event not already qualified on a team or as an all-around competitor, will also advance to the "NCAA Championships" (final session).
The NCAA Championships final session will take place April 11-12, also at Michigan.
Most recently, the Bears placed 3rd in the MPSF championship behind No.1 Oklahoma and Furd.
The Bears are led by redshirt senior Donothan Bailey (MPSF conference champ in the pommel horse), who had this nice high bar routine earlier this season.
