COPY-NCAA brings women's gymnastics finals to Texas for 1st time

AP Sports Writer

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - Florida and Oklahoma shared the NCAA women's gymnastics title last year, a first in the event's 32-year history.

Now it's time for another first: crowning a winner in Texas, home to a pair of former Olympic all-around champions and Simone Biles, a strong contender to make it three in 2016.

Yet the top tier of collegiate gymnastics hasn't made it to the Lone Star State until now, with the Super Six set to be decided Friday in downtown Fort Worth. The champion - or champions, if there's a repeat of last year's rarity - will be determined Saturday. Individual event finals are Sunday.

All but two of the 12 teams have at least one Texan on the roster.
