In women's gymnastics, the saying has gone something like this: They're not getting older, they're getting fatter. And for years this was the cruel reality. All those supple sprites we kept seeing on "Wide World of Sports" grew up and out. They became, in other words, women. Grown out of their sport and into real life. They went to college, the gymnastic equivalent of pasture, a low-pressure payoff for all those lo-cal years in the elite program. Well, what do you know.

Jerry Tomlinson, UCLA women's gymnastics coach, showed up for practice last Monday wearing a University of Georgia T-shirt. Georgia is the defending national champion, and Monday's practice was one of the more important ones the Bruins held before the National Collegiate Athletic Assn. championships beginning tonight at the University of Utah. The gimmick wasn't lost on the team. Two months ago, the Bruins had traveled to Georgia for their toughest meet of the season. UCLA was seeded No.

Oregon State's Joy Selig won the individual title, but UCLA set an NCAA record Saturday night to win the 1989 Pacific 10 Conference gymnastics championships. The Bruins, led by Tanya Service and Kim Hamilton, who finished second and third behind Selig in the all-around competition, scored 195.20 points. Led by Selig, who earned the individual crown by winning the uneven parallel bars, balance beam and floor exercise, the Beavers finished second with 193.65 points.

This was the first time the NCAA women's gymnastics championships had ever been held east of the Mississippi. So, going into the final night of competition at the University of Florida, perhaps it was only natural that there was some confusion about Western teams other than high-profile, six-time national champion Utah. One of the local papers referred to Arizona State as "the Lady Titans."

The UCLA women's gymnastics team defeated Cal State Fullerton three times during the regular season. So, it was hardly surprising when the No. 2-ranked Bruins--led by Kim Hamilton and Tanya Service--held off No. 6 Cal State Fullerton Saturday night to win the regional team title and advance to the national championships, April 14-15, at Athens Ga. The Bruins outscored the Titans, 193.25-191.85. Defending regional champion Oregon State was third with 190.

Given the competition, Saturday night's UCLA-Los Angeles Times Women's Gymnastics Invitational went pretty much as expected. The Bruins, ranked seventh in the nation, won with a meet-record score of 191.45. And their star gymnast, Jill Andrews, with one of the strongest performances of her career before 4,358 at Pauley Pavilion, added another individual all-around title to her resume. The only legitimate competitor in the four-team meet, No. 12 Cal State Fullerton, finished second at 187.95. No.

Tanya Service recovered from a motorcycle spill on Monday to win the all-around on Saturday and help the Bruins gain their third straight UCLA-Times Women's Gymnastics Invitational title, thus moving from uneasy rider to easy glider in less than a week. She scored an invitational record 38.85 in the all-around, including another meet record of 9.85 on floor exercises, to keep Bruin dominance alive in this event. "Our first peak of the year," said UCLA Coach Jerry Tomlinson.

From the beginning of the meet, there was pressure on Jill Andrews. With two of UCLA's three All-American gymnasts injured, Andrews said she felt responsible for carrying her team in the NCAA West Regional Saturday night at the John Wooden Center. So while her teammates chatted and laughed as they waited to perform, Andrews, the only senior, stood back. She paced, stretched and stared at the gym floor, mentally rehearsing her routines.
