FAYETTEVILLE – The No. 10 University of Arkansas gymnastics team travels to Tuscaloosa, Ala., to compete in the 10th annual Power of Pink Meet benefitting the DCH Breast Cancer Fund in a top 10 matchup against No. 7 Alabama. The meet is scheduled to begin at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 24.

Senior All-American Katherine Grable comes into the meet as the No. 1 overall gymnast in the country and will be poised to lead the team in its first top 10 matchup of the season. Grable leads the country with a 39.500 average in the all-around competition, ahead of Alabama’s top performer in Kim Jacob with a 39.275 season average.

“This meet coming up will have about 14,000 people, so it is a lot different than our home crowd and it will be very important for us,” co-head coach Mark Cook said. “We have been going through our routines in practice like usual to prepare for this meet and overall we are just trying to stay consistent in our preparation.”

The Razorbacks come into the meet with a season high of 196.200 which the team scored in the season opening meet while hosting Bridgeport and Western Michigan. While compared to Alabama, which has a season high of 197.150 where the team scored in its season opening meet at home against Missouri.

The Razorbacks faced the Crimson Tide on three separate occasions last season including the NCAA Championships. Arkansas also scored its season high in 2013 against the Tide in Barnhill Arena scoring a 197.100.

Fans unable to attend the meet can follow live stats, a live blog and in-meet updates will be available on the team’s official Twitter account @RazorbackGYM.
