Ground broken on LSU gymnastics training facility

BATON ROUGE - The LSU gymnastics team will finally have a new place to hone their skills as Tuesday's official groundbreaking ceremony kicks off construction of an all-new practice facility.

The new training facility will be built between the Pete Maravich Assembly Center and Robinson Tennis Stadium, a space currently occupied by a parking lot, and will allow for equipment specialization the booming gymnastics program sorely needs.

LSU gymnastics currently practices in a shared space in the Carl Maddox Field House that is below the standards of training facilities used by other top-tier gymnastics programs the Tigers seek to rival.

The state-of-the-art space will also provide a boost to recruitment for a Tiger gymnastics team that shattered school records and attendance records in a 2014 season that many consider to be the best in program history.
