Auburn, Ala. -
The Auburn gymnastics team (0-3, 0-3 SEC) will travel to Raleigh, NC, to take on N.C. State, George Washington and Texas Women's University in a quad-meet. The meet, hosted by N.C. State, will be held at Reynolds Coliseum on Sunday, Feb. 3, at noon, CT.
"It is going to be a four-ring circus this weekend," said Auburn head coach Jeff Thompson. "With everything rolling at the same time, we don't have to wait for judges on other events. You put up the score and the next gymnast is ready to go. It's similar to what we do in the gym for our intra-squad."
Auburn, ranked No. 16 by GymInfo, is also ranked in all four of the events; vault (13), beam (19), bars (22) and floor (19). The Wolfpack is ranked at No. 20 on vault, 16 on bars and 18 on floor.
Auburn leads the series with the Pack 8-1-1. The Tigers have the edge over GW 1-0, and lead the Pioneers 2-0.
The Tigers meet with the Wolfpack, Colonials and Pioneers for their first of two consecutive road meets. Auburn will travel to Baton Rouge, La., on Feb. 8, to face LSU and West Virginia.
Auburn returns to action on the Plains, Feb. 15, to face the Georgia Gym Dogs at 7 p.m., in Beard-Eaves-Memorial Coliseum. Admission to home meets is $5 for adults and $2 for children. Live stats for home meets are available at www.auburntigers.com.
