AUBURN, Ala. – The Auburn gymnastics team will host its annual Halloween intra-squad scrimmage Friday, Oct. 27, in the McWhorter Center beginning at 1:30 p.m. CT.
“The annual Halloween intra-squad is really our kickoff to the season,” head coach Jeff Graba said. “The girls have been working extremely hard and I think they are looking forward to this event. The more fans the better Friday so we can give this young team a taste of what’s to come this season.”
As usual, the Tigers will be split into two teams – vampires and werewolves – and will compete in all four events. Fans will be able to see full bar and beam routines, while each member competing on floor will do their dance in addition to at least one tumbling pass.
The 2018 edition of Auburn gymnastics is a good mix of experience and youth, starting with its two seniors - Cara Stricklin and Kennedy Finister. The junior class is composed of redshirt junior Abby Milliet along with Telah Black, Samantha Cerio, Emma Engler, Taylor Krippner, and A’Miracal Phillips.
In addition to the squads four sophomores – Katie Becker, Gracie Day, Kendal Moss, Emma Slappey – the fans will get to see the team’s large group of freshmen in action. The newcomers are Sydney Bassett, Jada Glenn, Allie Riddle, Ashley Smith, Meredith Sylvia, and Drew Watson.
The Tigers have five meets in Auburn Arena this season with four against the SEC. That includes match-ups with Florida (Feb. 2) and Alabama (Feb. 23).
