For the fourth time in her career, Illinois State University gymnast Sami King will participate in the balance beam competition at the 2015 NCAA Regionals. On April 4 at the University of Oklahoma, King has the chance to showcase her talent in front of schools from across the United States.
Her freshman year, she placed 16th in the competition with an overall score of 38.450. Her biggest improvement came the following year, where she placed in the top 10, compiling a score of 39.125. In her third year in regionals, King earned a 9.625 on the balance beam, which was good enough for eleventh place. So far this season, King has added more personal bests, including tying for first place in the balance beam at the Midwest Independent Conference Championships last weekend.
