Alabama Gymnastics Stays At No. 5

The Alabama gymnastics team retained its No. 5 ranking this week after posting a season-best 196.950 in a loss at Georgia last Saturday. At this point in the season, rankings are determined by total season average.



Alabama's next opponent, the Florida Gators, remain at the top of the rankings this week and are followed by Oklahoma, Michigan and UCLA, which all retain their spots from a week ago. In addition to the Gators, the Crimson Tide will take on the Sooners and Bruins in the coming weeks, with Oklahoma and UCLA closing out Alabama's regular-season home schedule.

Alabama is fourth on the vault, fifth on the uneven bars, seventh on the balance beam and seventh on the floor exercise.

Junior Kim Jacob is ranked 15th in the all-around, fifth on the floor exercise and 22nd on the balance beam after posting a career-best 9.950 on the floor exercise against Georgia. Junior Diandra Milliner is ranked sixth on the vault, while senior Ashley Sledge is 23rd on the floor exercise. Senior Ashley Priess and junior Sarah DeMeo are tied for seventh on uneven bars.

After taking on Florida on the road this Friday at 7 p.m. ET, the Tide will return to Tuscaloosa to face in-state rival Auburn on Feb. 15 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are available now through the Alabama Ticket Office (205.348.2262) located in the lobby of Coleman Coliseum or online at RollTide.com.
