Gym’Backs to sign autographs

FAYETTEVILLE — The University of Arkansas gymnastics team will meet fans and sign autographs Saturday, Dec. 8, from 2:00-3:00 p.m., at the Northwest Arkansas Mall Center Court.

The Lady Razorbacks and their coaching staff will also pose for photographs and Big Red will be on hand for pictures as well.

"We can’t wait," said co-head coach Rene Cook. "It’s great to get out and meet our fans. We hear so many wonderful stories and it’s great to have some one-on-one time with the people who support us meet in and meet out. It’s also a chance for us to make an impression on someone who might not have seen a match yet."

Six home meets, 10 NCAA Regional participants and the defending national champion highlight the 2007 University of Arkansas gymnastics schedule. The team adds one meet to the typical five-home date schedule this year as the Gym’Backs get ready for the sixth season at Arkansas. “We have a great schedule again this year,” said Cook. “We are really excited to be going to Michigan in the first meet of the year after coming off Regionals there last year. It’s been a bit of a motivator in the preseason. We are also taking part in the ‘Pink Out’ meet at Alabama this year. That meet had the highest attendance in the country last year and we’re honored to be selected to participate in that this season.”
