FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – The Arkansas gymnastics team concluded this weeks practice with its third intrasquad of the season Friday afternoon inside the Huntley Gymnastics Center.
“Our intrasquad today was geared at starting our competition simulation,” head coach Mark Cook said. “The warm-ups, and routines mirrored the format of our meets. We were fair today, with room for much improvement.”
The Razorbacks are building depth in each event with the help of freshmen Sydney Laird and Sophia Carter. Carter competes in all four events while Laird has stepped up and looked strong on uneven bars and balance beam.
“We’re still trying to get some people back to their full potential due to injuries in the past, but everyone has really been working hard,” said senior Braie Speed. “The freshmen have really been putting in work and showing up during intrasquad which is awesome to see.”
Arkansas is at the mid-point of fall practice and will host its fourth of six intrasquads in two weeks. It will be the first time that officials have judged the Razorbacks during an intrasquad meet this season.
“Our next intrasquad will be in two weeks with officials judging it,” said head coach Mark Cook. “We’re adding a few more returning athletes to the lineup should improve our scoring potential. The girls did a good job of keeping their energy up today, and they continue to work on the details.”
