CANCUN, Mexico -
The Auburn gymnastics team completed its final practice on Thursday in preparation for its first meet, the Cancun Classic, which will be held on Friday starting at 7:30.
The Tigers landed in Cancun on Wednesday afternoon and have been enjoying the culture and sights of Mexico. After practice at the Hilton Cancun Golf and Spa Resort on Thursday, the team found time for the beach before heading to the local mall and market area for some shopping and dinner.
"This is a great experience for our girls to come to such a beautiful location," head coach Jeff Thompson said. "They have worked very hard over the past few months in preparation for this meet, and I think it will pay off."
AU will have some stiff competition as they prepare to face No. 13 Iowa State, No. 18 Missouri and BYU. Recap and results can be found at auburntigers.com, or by visiting cancunclassic.com.
