Alabama gymnasts at Auburn Friday, home to West Virginia Sunday

Alabama gymnastics has a pressure-packed meet at Auburn Friday, and then hosts West Virginia Sunday

Alabama gymnastics has a lot in common with Crimson Tide football, most obviously that both are regularly among the best in the nation. And as football ordinarily competes once a week in season, gymnastics usually competes on Fridays.


The Alabama gymnastics team of Coach Dana Duckworth will have a Friday meet this week, but that’s not the end of the weekend fare.


The No. 4 Alabama gymnastics team \will take on Auburn in Auburn Arena starting at 7:30 p.m. CST Friday.


(Buses will take Crimson Tide fans to the meet on Friday and return after the meet. For more information on the buses, go to The Medalist Club’s website, Seats are limited.)


As in all sports, Alabama vs. Auburn is pressure-packed. That is particularly true for Bama when facing the Tigers because of the long (well over 100) winning streak the Tide has over Auburn.


Alabama then has a quick turnaround. The Tide returns home to take on West Virginia in a rare Sunday meet in Coleman Coliseum. The meet will get underway at 3 p.m., but a carnival-type event will be on the concourse prior to the meet for those who arrive early.
