Rutgers sophomore Hannah Joyner is set to compete on the beam at the 2021 NCAA Women’s Gymnastics Championships this weekend. Joyner qualified after finishing second in the event at the Morgantown Regional after posting a score 9.925. She was the highest individual qualifier in the beam that was not part of an advancing team.
Joyner made history in the process, as she become the first Rutgers gymnast to post a score above 9.9 at an NCAA Regional and is just the third Scarlet Knight to qualify for nationals in program history. She continues to build a stellar career on the banks.
In March, she finished third in the beam and third in the all-around at the Big Ten Championships. Joyner was also a First Team All-Big Ten selection for a second consecutive year. Here is Joyner eclipsing the 9.9 mark at last month’s Big Ten Championships.

Joyner holds the school record on the beam and has produced a score better than 9.9 six times this season and 13th time in her career after doing so once again at the Morgantown Regional. She will look to add to that total when she competes in the beam at the NCAA Championships in Fort Worth, Texas on April 16-17.
