UCLA star gymnast Selena Harris dismissed from team and in transfer portal – Orange County Register

Selena Harris, the 2024 Pac-12 Gymnast of the Year and 12-time All-American, was dismissed from UCLA gymnastics Tuesday and is currently in the transfer portal, as confirmed by a UCLA spokesperson.

Ben Royer of the Daily Bruin was the first to break the news in a post on X, formerly known as Twitter. UCLA Athletics has not provided any further details.

“shhhhh 🤫,” Harris posted on X on Wednesday morning in response to a post that she was in the transfer portal.

Harris had removed “UCLA gymnastics” from her X bio, but the team remained in her Instagram bio as of Wednesday afternoon.

The sophomore is coming off a highly successful season that included three 9.95+ routines in three consecutive meets and four perfect 10s. She was one of two UCLA gymnasts to qualify for the NCAA Championships as an individual, along with Chae Campbell, and tied for third place on balance beam.

UCLA struggled to find consistency in its scores this season as gymnasts’ injuries forced much shuffling of the lineup. Harris provided honest thoughts when the Bruins reached a season-high score, at the time, in their Pac-12 opener against Washington:

“We were tired of losing,” Selena Harris told reporters.
