AUBURN – Auburn gymnastics is ranked 13th in the 2013 preseason coaches poll released by GymInfo on Monday morning.
“I think our coaching community sees that we will be better this year by ranking us higher than where we finished last season,” Auburn gymnastics coach Jeff Graba said. “We have a young, but very talented team and it appears the coaches nationally agree with that. We should be a lot of fun to watch and starting us at 13th illustrates that we should have a good season.”
The ranking of 13th is the highest preseason start for Auburn in program history. The Tigers were previously ranked 14th in both 2010 and 2004.
Auburn finished the 2012 season ranked 15th and reached as high as 13th during the season, the highest rank since 2009. The Tigers posted two of the top five overall team scores in program history with totals of 196.875 against Florida and 196.700 against Southern Utah during the season.
The Tigers open the 2013 season at California with Arizona and Kentucky on January 6. Auburn’s first home meet is January 11 against Kentucky.
