Alabama Gymnasts Have Record Meet

The No. 4 ranked Alabama gymnastics team had a night for the ages Friday in Coleman Coliseum, posting school-record to beat No. 10 Stanford in Coleman Coliseum Friday night, 198.250-196.300, in front of 11,138 fans.

Alabama Coach Sarah Patterson's team finished the night with a huge 49.675 on the floor exercise, led by six scores of 9.925 or better, including 9.95s from senior Kim Jacob and freshman Amanda Jetter.

Alabama started the meet with a scorching 49.625 on the vault behind senior Diandra Milliner's perfect 10.0, the second of her career. On the uneven bars, junior Kaitlyn Clark scored a career-best 9.95 to pace the Tide to a 49.525 team score, the seventh highest in school history.

The Tide bounced back from a fall in the leadoff position on the balance beam, closing out with a season-best 49.425, led by another career-best 9.95 from Clark.

The Tide closes out the regular season next Friday at home against the Auburn Tigers. Tickets are available now through the Alabama Ticket Office (205.348.2262) located in the lobby of Coleman Coliseum or online at
