TUSCALOOSA – The Alabama gymnastics team is ranked sixth nationally this week as it prepares for its last two regular-season meets of the season.

With Alabama at No. 6, Denver is seventh and Georgia, the Tide’s opponent this week, is eighth. Oregon State and Boise State round out the top 10.
Individually, junior Kiana Winston is No. 8 in the all-around, No. 6 on the floor exercise and No. 11 on the balance beam. Junior Nickie Guerrero is fourth on the balance beam while senior Aja Sims is 10th on the floor exercise. Senior Katie Bailey is 15th on the vault.
After closing out its regular-season road slate at No. 8 Georgia on March 5, Alabama returns to Coleman Coliseum for its regular-season finale on March 10 against Iowa State.
