White is the only representative from an NCAA Division III institution this weekend. However, gymnastics itself does not have NCAA divisions as all 82 teams in the nation vie for the national championship.

White becomes just the second Centenary gymnast to qualify for NCAA regional competition twice (Kristina Menne on bars in 2004 and in the all-around in 2005) and the first to compete in the all-around in two different seasons. Two other gymnasts in program history have competed in a regional meet (Laura Loy on beam in 2008 and Jessica Lieblich in the all-around in 2011).

White holds the highest regional qualifying score (RQS) in both the all-around (38.695) and on bars (9.730) among athletes at NCAA Division III institutions.

Last season at the Iowa City Regional, White finished 12th in the all-around with an event-best of 9.725 on bars.
