Ohio State Announces 2022 Schedule


COLUMBUS, Ohio – The Ohio State women’s gymnastics team’s 2022 schedule has been set, head coach Meredith Paulicivic announced Monday. The Buckeyes will host six meets at the Covelli Center during the campaign and face five 2021 NCAA Regional finalists.

“I am really excited about our schedule,” Ohio State head coach Meredith Paulicivic said. “We have an even six home meets and six away and we have several not only top 20 opponents this year, but top 10 opponents. It is going to be really challenging, but it will have us much better prepared for the post season.”

The team opens the 2022 season on the road, visiting Arkansas on Jan. 7. Along with the Razorbacks, the Buckeyes will face five other nonconference opponents in Denver, Cal, Pitt, Bowling Green and Kent State. Ohio State hosts Denver in the first home meet of the season on Jan. 15, Bowling Green and Kent State in the All-Ohio meet on March 4 and Cal and Pitt in the final regular season meet on March 11.

Of the remaining home contests, the Buckeyes face conference foes Penn State, Rutgers and Michigan State at the Covelli Center on Jan. 22, Jan. 30 and Feb. 26, respectively.

Ohio State spends the majority of February on the road. A trip west starts the month as the team meets Nebraska on Feb. 7 in Lincoln and then visits Minnesota on Feb. 12. The Buckeyes return to Ohio to meet Iowa, Michigan, Illinois and Maryland at the Big Five meet in Toledo the following week and close out the road schedule at Kent State on March 6.

The 2022 Big Ten Championships will be held at Iowa on March 19. NCAA Regionals will be hosted by Kentucky, Washington, Auburn and NC State from March 31-April 2 and Texas Woman’s is set to host the championships April 15-16 at Dickies Arena in Fort Worth, Texas.

Ohio State returns 16 letterwinners and welcomes five freshmen to the roster this season. This year’s freshmen class is Paulicivic’s first top-15 recruiting class of her tenure at Ohio State. The Buckeyes finished the 2020-21 season at the NCAA Regional Final, making their first appearance in the Sweet 16 since the NCAA implemented a new regional format in 2019.
