Maryland gymnastics is back in the postseason for the first time since 2015.

The Terps are among 36 teams in the field for the NCAA Women’s Gymnastics Championships, which was revealed Monday. They will be in the Raleigh regional, joining women’s basketball as the second Maryland team to play postseason rounds at NC State this year. The regional field also includes LSU, Nebraska, Oregon State and George Washington.

Maryland enters the postseason 21-8, already with its most team wins since a 23-11 campaign in 2011. Head coach Brett Nelligan earned Big Ten Coach of the Year honors, as the Terps went 6-4 in the conference and competed in the evening session at the Big Ten Championships for the first time since joining the league in 2014. Freshman Audrey Barber earned an all-conference first team nod, while sophomore Alicia Farina was named to the second team.

Regional play begins at 4 p.m. ET on Saturday, April 7.
