About the Super Six
This is the eighth season for the Super Six Challenge, one of the premier meets of the collegiate gymnastics regular season. Former Southeastern Conference Commissioner Roy Kramer initiated the Super Six Challenge because he wanted to create a showcase event for the league’s gymnastics programs.
Florida (6) , Georgia (6) and Alabama (7) have made the most appearances at the Six Challenge and have each played host to the event twice – Georgia (2000, 03), Alabama (2001, 04), Florida (2002, 05). This is the fifth appearance in the event for Penn State. Alabama (2000, 04, 06) has won three times and Georgia (2002, 03) twice while the two powerhouses shared the 2001 crown. Florida turned in its best Super Six Challenge finish of second in 2004 and Penn State’s top finish of fifth came in 2003.
