AUBURN, Ala. – The Auburn gymnastics team will hold its annual Preview Meet Friday, Dec. 1, at 6:30 p.m. CT in Auburn Arena. Admission to the meet is free.
“The Preview Meet is always our final kickoff before season starts,” head coach Jeff Graba said. “We try our best to help acclimate the team to our home environment so holding it on a Friday night is ideal. We still need the fan support in order to simulate a home meet so I’m encouraging all fans to show up and get a sneak peek at this year’s team!”
GET THERE EARLY
The Auburn Arena doors will open 60 minutes prior to the start of the meet and fans are encouraged to get there early! The holiday-themed giveaway for this year’s event is an Auburn Gymnastics Christmas stocking and fans will be able to “stuff” their stocking with a handful of goodies provided.
In addition, Aubie Clause will once again make an appearance. The fan favorite will be set up in the Kid Zone on the second level and will be available from 5:45 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.
MEET THE SQUAD
The meet will give fans the opportunity to see the Tigers for the first time before competition begins in January. Auburn’s lineup boasts two seniors – Kennedy Finister and Cara Stricklin – and six juniors in Telah Black, Samantha Cerio, Emma Engler, Taylor Krippner, Abby Milliet, 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 will hold one of their two autograph sessions this year at the conclusion of the meet. Team posters will be available and the squad will line up on the main level of the arena.
