BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - LSU and Alabama met in a top-10 showdown that saw the Tigers put up a season-high score Friday inside Coleman Coliseum in Tuscaloosa, AL.

LSU won 197.450 to 196.850. The Tigers improved to 2-2 overall and 1-2 in the SEC.

“I was very pleased how we fought from the first bars routine to the final beam routine,” said head coach D-D Breaux. “I was really proud of the performance by Ruby Harrold tonight and of course the job that Sarah Finnegan and Kennedi Edney did.”

Both Finnegan and Edney took home the all-around title. They both finished with a total score of 39.625. This marked the fourth all-around win for Finnegan in four meets. She got wins on floor and beam, while Edney took the titles on vault and beam.

This was the ninth straight win for the Tigers over the Crimson Tide. LSU has also now won three straight in Tuscaloosa.

Alabama still leads the all-time series between the schools 96-28-2 with the Tigers winning just five times in Coleman Coliseum in school history.
