The University of Alabama gymnastics team is ranked No. 6 in this week’s national rankings.
The same six teams from last week’s rankings make up this week’s top tier, with two teams swapping places. Oklahoma and LSU remain first and second, while UCLA and Florida switched places at third and fourth, respectively. Utah and Alabama remain fifth and sixth. Denver is seventh, followed by Georgia, Michigan and Oregon State.
Those rankings helped determine the seeding for Saturday’s Southeastern Conference Championships in Jacksonville, Fla. LSU (1), Florida (2), Alabama (3) and Georgia (4) make up the top four seeds and will compete in the evening session. The SEC’s first session includes No. 12 Kentucky (5), No. 14 Missouri (6), No. 21 Auburn (7) and No. 26 Arkansas (8).
Alabama ranks third nationally on floor exercise, fourth on vault and balance beam and sixth on uneven bars. Junior Kiana Winston ranks fourth nationally and first in the SEC in the all-around.
