Senior Lauren Beers started her last regular-season home gymnastics meet on the vault with the first 10.0 of her career, pushing the Tide to a 49.400, which matches the Tide’s season-best mark. She then closed out her night with a huge 9.975 routine on the floor exercise, pacing Alabama to a 49.500 which also tied its season best.
The No. 3 ranked Alabama gymnastics team beat No. 10 Georgia, 197.550-195.700 in front of 12,427 fans on Senior and Alumni Night in Coleman Coliseum Friday. It was the Crimson Tide’s best score of the season on a night when several UA gymnasts posted career-best marks.
Sophomore Kiana Winston also had a huge night, scoring her second consecutive 9.975 on the uneven bars, leading Alabama to a 49.525 team score, and a career-best 9.975 on the floor exercise. Sophomore Nickie Guerrero got a 10 from one judge on the balance beam, earning a 9.95 overall, and leading the Tide to a 49.125 team score.
The Tide closes out its regular season next Friday in Baton Rouge, taking on LSU at 7:30 p.m. in the Pete Maravich Assembly Center.
