Southern Utah University gymnastics will begin its season this Friday, January 13, when the Thunderbirds host the University of Missouri. However, fans will be able to get a sneak peek at the team during the annual Red/White Preview on Tuesday night at 7:00 in the Centrum Arena.
The meet will pit T-Bird against T-Bird with the active squad of 12 being divided into two teams of six. The night will be a condensed version of what fans would typically see at a regular season meet, with only four gymnasts competing on each event instead of the customary six.
“We expect our girls to come out strong and perform just like they would during the regular season,” head coach Scott Bauman said. “We understand that it will be the first meet of the year and that we have some inexperienced girls competing on some of the events, but this is really the time to secure their spot in the lineups.”
Fans are encouraged to stay after the meet and enjoy a poster signing event that will take place on the west concourse of the Centrum Arena. Admission is free.
