Katherine Grable went tumbling out of bounds on her opening double front Arabian pass, so the Razorbacks ended with a 49.350 on floor while Alabama had a 49.300 on beam. Both teams finished with a score of 197.100.
Amy Borsellino of Arkansas won the all around – she had a dynamic vault, floor routine and was strong on bars and beam as well for the Lady Gymbacks.
Sarah and Rene are being interviewed by ESPN’s Kathy Johnson-Clarke and both are happy with the outcome. Arkansas competed with fire and confidence tonight after what has been a tough first two months for them. They have to feel positive going forward but still have an uphill climb with the RQS starting this week.
Coach Patterson is now reporting on WVUA with our team that Marissa appears to be okay – they do not believe it is an achilles but will make sure once she is back in Tuscaloosa by having her see the doctor. Coach is proud of how well the team responded on the balance beam and tallied another 197 plus score, this time on the road.
The Tide hosts the UCLA Bruins next week in Coleman Coliseum and it should be a doozy! The fans will love the great talent and presentation on floor from the Bruins, so everyone needs to come out and support the Tide against the 6 time NCAA champs, who are hosting this year’s national championship in Los Angeles in April.
Congratulations to both Alabama and Arkansas for a great competition! Roll Tide and we’ll see you next week here on gymtide.com.
