ATHENS, GA (WAFB) - The 2nd-ranked LSU Gymnastics team had trouble sticking landings Friday night in Athens, Georgia, but still won a share of the 2018 SEC Regular season title, beating the Gym Dogs 197.575 to 196.725 in front of a crowd of 10,050.
NCAA floor exercise leader, Myia Hambrick, had her streak of stellar performances snapped, scoring just a 9.575 in her specialty, but Lexie Priessman, Kennedi Edney, and Sarah Finnegan all posted 9.9s on the bars to open the competition and LSU (12-1, 6-0 SEC) never looked back after taking a half point lead. It was LSU's first win at Georgia since 1983, with Finnegan taking the all-around title with a score of 39.675.
The Tigers, which were making their third appearance in eight days, posted 198+ scores in their last two outings. They return home to the PMAC next Sunday afternoon at 2:30 p.m. to face Auburn for Dads & Daughters Day.
