Gymnastics Moves to Second in the Nation

BATON ROUGE – The undefeated LSU Gymnastics team moved up to No. 2 in the latest Road to Nationals rankings with an average team score of 197.008. 

The ranking is the best for the program since 2018 when the team spent the final four weeks of the regular season at the second spot. 

The Tigers are coming off two-straight 197-plus team scores and have proved to be one of the most consistent teams in the nation. The squad ranks second in the nation on floor, fourth on beam and sixth on vault and bars. 

Individually, freshman Haleigh Bryant ranks fourth in the nation in the all-around and sixth on floor. Sophomore Kiya Johnson is the number one performer on floor in 2021.  

LSU travels to take on No. 22 Auburn for the final meet of the first four-week stretch of the season. The meet will be televised live at 4 p.m. CT Friday on ESPN2 with Bart Conner and Kathy Johnson Clarke on the call.
