    Cartell’s Chatter: SEC Again Leads Way In Gymnastics

    By: Sean Cartell

    BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – After somewhat of a crazy weekend in collegiate gymnastics, one thing has remained constant: the Southeastern Conference continues to dominate the sport across the board at each of its institutions. In the latest GymInfo poll released on Monday, the SEC boasts four teams in the top six in the nation and six of the league’s seven institutions that sponsor gymnastics are among the top-15.

    Entering last weekend, Arkansas and UCLA were tied as the nation’s top-ranked teams before both fell in their most recent meets. The Razorbacks, who are now ranked No. 2 in the latest poll, fell to Florida (now No. 3) after the Gators turned in the nation’s top total this season with a score of 197.775. It was the fifth-highest total score in Florida school history. Conversely, Arkansas tied for the ninth-best score in its school history at 196.70, which marked the program’s third-best ever road score.

    Georgia moved up to No. 4 in the latest rankings after a season-high score of 197.250 last Saturday against LSU, which checks in at No. 14. Alabama, the nation’s sixth-ranked team, won its third consecutive in-state match-up with Auburn (now No. 13) with a 196.325-196.250 victory.

    The SEC is the only conference in the nation to currently feature four teams in the nation’s top 10.

    Teams from the SEC have won 15 NCAA Gymnastics Championships.
