Alabama Gymnastics Looks to Bounce Back
Alabama gymnastics only has one loss in the season so far, and it was a close one. The ladies' latest meet in Athens, GA Friday against the Dawgs ended in a final score of 197.00 to 197.275. This puts the team at 4-1 on the season and 2-1 on the road. Although the Tide lost, a combined team score of 197.00 is the highest of the season thus far and there is still plenty of time to bounce back.
According to the Road to Nationals the Crimson Tide are ranked No. 6 in the country in the NCAA rankings. Having already beaten ranked Kentucky, Missouri, and Auburn, this one loss should give the girls momentum to finish the season strong. Although, the road ahead is extremely tough, the SEC is stacked in the rankings with seven teams in the top 20.
Next on the Tide’s schedule is No. 2 LSU at home, at No. 5 Arkansas, and a home meet against No. 1 ranked Florida on Saturday March 5, 2021. Less than a single point separates the average score between Alabama and Florida. The SEC conference championship meet will be held Saturday March 20 this year.
Alabama gymnastics is no stranger to national ranks. Since 2002, The Crimson Tide was ranked first overall three different times, second overall three different times, and you guessed it- third overall four different times. The ladies are still looking to crack the top three for the first time since 2016. As they currently sit ranked No. 6, currently up six spots from finishing 12th a year ago.
