AUBURN, Ala. – The Auburn gymnastics team remained at No. 16 on the RoadtoNationals.com weekly rankings following a solid road score of 196.375 at Georgia this past Friday. The Tigers upped their average to 195.650.

The Tigers moved up to 12th nationally on vault with a 49.008 average and on beam at 49.017. The squad’s 48.892 average on bars is 18th.

Junior Samantha Cerio’s 9.892 average on bars in tied for 12th nationally, while freshman Drew Watson is tied for 25th on vault with a 9.858 mark.
