Bama Gymnastics Springs to Super Six Competition

"For the University of Alabama the goal is always to be on the floor the last night of the season with an opportunity to win the national championship," Patterson said. "So for us to be moving forward ... we are ecstatic."

The excitement was high as senior Ashley Sledge started the competition off last night with a 9.8 on the uneven bars. Senior Becca Alexin scores a 9.8 on the uneven bars as the Tide's second routine of the night.

The NCAA Super Six Team Finals get underway Saturday at 4 p.m. PDT in the New Pauley Pavilion on the UCLA campus. Alabama will start the 2013 Super Six Team Finals on a bye before opening on the floor exercise. The SEC is well represented in the Super Six, I can't wait to cheer on the girls this evening... They'll be competing with Oklahoma and Michigan from their session & from the first session LSU, Florida and UGA. Thank you all for your support and until this evening,

Roll Tide, Y'all!!
