Bama gymnastics ranked No. 1

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. – Just days after the Alabama gymnastics team clinched its seventh Southeastern Conference Championship with a stellar vault rotation, the Crimson Tide once again finds itself ranked No. 1 in the nation in the vault  and junior Geralen Stack-Eaton is the nation's top ranked gymnast on the balance beam.

Alabama scored a 49.5 on the vault at the SEC Championships, the highest event total of any team on any event at the meet, while Stack-Eaton won the balance beam with a 9.925, which pushed her into the No. 1 spot. 

Overall, Alabama is ranked second nationally, just a fraction of a point behind Florida, the SEC Championship runner-up. Oregon State jumped to No. 3 while Stanford fell to No. 4. Oklahoma is fifth, followed by UCLA, Utah, Georgia, Michigan and Nebraska. 

Saturday, April 2 at 6 p.m., Alabama will host No. 11 Penn State, No. 14 Illinois, No. 22 Auburn, No. 25 Central Michigan and No. 30 Kentucky in the NCAA Tuscaloosa Regional. Tickets for that event are on sale online at RollTide.com and through the Alabama Ticket Office (205.348.2262) located in the lobby of Coleman Coliseum. 

In addition to its No. 1 ranking on the vault, the Tide is second on the floor exercise, third on the balance beam and fourth on the uneven bars. 

Individually, senior Kayla Hoffman and Stack-Eaton are ranked in the top 25 on all four apparatus and the all-around. Hoffman, the SEC vault champion, is third in the all-around, second on the vault, 13th on the uneven bars and balance beam and 19th on the floor exercise.  In addition to being first on the balance beam, Stack-Eaton is 14th in the all-around, 11th on the uneven bars, 16th on the vault and 22nd on the floor exercise. 

Freshman Diandra Milliner is third on the vault and 12th on the floor exercise while sophomore Ashley Sledge is 17th on the uneven bars and 20th on the vault. Freshmen Sarah DeMeo and Kim Jacob are seventh and 17th respectively on the balance beam.
