No. 9 Alabama Gymnastics Falls at No. 8 Auburn, 197.525-197.125

The Crimson Tide placed the highest score in just one event, with Shallon Olsen registering a 9.900 on the vault.

No. 9 Alabama gymnastics stumbled on the road on Friday night, falling at No. 8 Auburn by a final score of 197.525-197.125.

The Crimson Tide is now 1-3 to start the season and has lost all three of its meets on the road this season.

“We didn’t get off to the start that we wanted to tonight," Alabama coach Dana Duckworth said. "We wanted to come in and handle the chaos, but I felt like we held back on the first two rotations. We did make some steps forward on vault, with six 10.0 vaults in our lineup, which will help us in the long run. After the first two rotations, we went over to the floor and beam and had great performances on both. To compete like that – where we were aggressive, strong and showed great composure in this kind of environment – is what makes a championship team.

"We will use these lessons to make us better and to move forward.”
