The 2006 Arizona State University women's gymnastics team is ranked No. 14 in the nation by the GymInfo Preseason Coaches Poll, it was announced Sunday.

The Sun Devils, under 26th-year head coach John Spini, are looking to advance to an NCAA Regional berth for the eighth time in the past 10 seasons. Spini is currently ASU's longest-tenured head coach and is tied for second on the all-time Sun Devil head coaching list with legendary track and field mentor Senon "Baldy" Castillo. Former Sun Devil women's tenis coaching legend Anne Pittman holds the distinction as the longest-tenured ASU head coach in school history at 31 seasons.

ASU is lead by senior co-captains Ashley Kelly and Lauren Powell, both all-arounders, and juniors April Boone, Cassandra Jusino and Lisa Lanza. The Devils are bolstered by a talented freshman class which includes Nicole Harris, Tia Orlando, Carrie Finley, Ashlee Hinkle, Tiana Jean, Vanessa Rocca and Ashley Toner. The squad is completed with a sophomore class of Josie Hancock and Karissa Vossler.

ASU opens the 2006 campaign at Boise State University on January 13, 2006.
