BATON ROUGE - The LSU gymnastics team stayed put at No. 2 with a 197.485 regional qualifying score in the latest GymInfo national rankings released Monday.

 

LSU (10-1, 7-0 Southeastern Conference) wrapped up a perfect regular season against the SEC with a 197.350-197.225 victory at Alabama last week to remain No. 2 behind Oklahoma.

 

The Tigers are preparing for a sixth-straight meet against a Top 25 team when LSU takes on 16th-ranked Minnesota at 7:30 p.m. CT Friday in the Maravich Center. It will be senior night as the Tigers honor Rheagan Courville, Lloimincia Hall, Jessie Jordan, Britney Ranzy and Scarlett Williams.

 

The first 2,000 fans in attendance at the meet will receive a free set of LSU gymnastics trading cards. Doors to the Maravich Center will open at 6 p.m. Friday.

 

Tickets are available for purchase starting as low as $2 for groups of 10 or more. General admission tickets are $5 for adults and $3 for youth ages 3-12. Tickets can be purchased online at www.LSUtix.net, over the phone by calling the LSU Ticket Office at 225-578-2184 or in person at the ticket office on the first floor of the Moran Family Center for Athletic Administration.

 

In the team event rankings, LSU climbed one spot to No. 2 on beam, but the Tigers remained No. 2 on floor, No. 4 on bars and No. 6 on vault.

 

Three Tigers are ranked in the all-around Top 25 - Jordan is No. 3, Courville is No. 4 and Ashleigh Gnat is No. 16.
