Alabama Gymnastics Beats Arkansas

Posted: Updated:
TUSCALOOSA, AL - In front of a sold-out crowd of 15,075 dressed mostly in pink, the No. 7 ranked Alabama gymnastics team beat No. 10 Arkansas 197.125-196.100 in the Crimson Tide’s 10th annual Power of Pink meet.

The Tide finished the night off with a 49.225 on the floor exercise led by senior Kim Jacob’s 9.900. Senior Sarah DeMeo got the Tide off to a strong start on the vault with a career-best 9.925, that paced Alabama to a 49.300. On the uneven bars senior Kim Jacob led the way to a 49.300 team score with a 9.900. The Tide scored a season-best 49.300 on the balance beam led by Jacob’s 9.925 and a 9.9 from DeMeo.

Prior to the meet, Alabama introduced 17 breast cancer survivors in the spot light along with the Tide gymnasts in what has become a Power of Pink tradition in Coleman Coliseum. Two checks were also presented prior to the meet, one for $108,900 to the DCH Breast Cancer Fund representing all the money raised this past year and one for $1.45 million, representing the total raised over the past decade.

Alabama is back on the road for its next meet, traveling to Baton Rouge, La., to take on LSU on Friday, Jan. 31. Tickets for the Tide’s home meets and the SEC and NCAA Championships are on sale through the Alabama Ticket Office (205.348.2262) located in the lobby of Coleman Coliseum.
