No. 4 Alabama Gymnastics Returns Home Sunday to Face No. 24 West Virginia
The No. 4 ranked Alabama gymnastics team returns home to face No. 24 West Virginia less than 48 hours after posting a 197.250, its second highest score of the season, at Auburn Friday night. The meet gets underway at 3 p.m.
The Crimson Tide’s score at Auburn gives Alabama two of the four highest road marks in the nation this season and the two best road marks in the Southeastern Conference in 2016.
Sunday also features Big Al's Carnival on the concourse, which will include a variety of carnival inspired games and activities, starting at 1 p.m. There will also be the usual array of great prizes given away on Sunday courtesy of Tuscaloosa Toyota.
Prior to the meet, ReadBAMARead, the literacy imitative founded by UA head coach Dana Duckworth, will present a check for $1,000 worth of library books to Holt Elementary, while the elementary school that has the most students, teachers and staff sign up at the ReadBAMARead table on the concourse will have a chance to win another $1,000 worth of books for their school.
In a nod to Valentine’s Day, Kevin Norwood, a member of three national football championships at Alabama, and Kayla Williams, a member of the Tide’s 2012 NCAA gymnastics championship team, who were engaged following Williams’ final home meet last season, will hand out awards following Sunday’s meet.
Tickets for Sunday's meet are $1 and are available online at RollTide.com and through the Alabama Ticket Office (205.348.2262) located in the lobby of Coleman Coliseum.
