LSU, 7-5 on the season and 1-3 in the SEC, looks for its first conference
win since the SEC opener January 17 at Kentucky, when the Tigers defeated the GymCats, 195.825-194.125.
The Tigers are coming off their best road performance of the year as they
scored a 196.025 to finish third at the Master Classic in Lincoln, Neb.,
Sunday. LSU also recorded its highest beam score of the season, 49.225,
behind a pair of near perfect 9.900s by freshman Megan Durning and junior
Arkansas enters the meet with a 5-6 overall record and a 1-4 slate in
conference action. The Ladybacks fell to SEC foe Georgia, 197.225-194.225, in their last outing, however, posted a season-high 194.975 two weeks ago in a quad-meet featuring Auburn, Missouri and Centenary.
Individually, the Ladybacks, comprised of 11 true freshmen, have been led by all-arounders Tiffany Berry and Hannah McLeod in their inaugural season.
Berry is averaging a 38.721 this season, while McLeod has averaged a 38.475.
Following LSU's meet with Arkansas, the Tigers will host their final home
meet of the 2003 season when they welcome No. 7 Georgia to the PMAC Friday, March 7.
