Trading card night as gym hosts Auburn

FAYETTEVILLE — Arkansas’ gymnastics team, which has been ranked in the top 10 all season, is home for the second week in a row on Friday, and several promotions are scheduled.

The Razorbacks moved up in the rankings from No. 10 to No. 7 following last week’s victory over No. 12 Kentucky. This week, the Razorbacks face No. 16 Auburn on Friday at 7 p.m. in Barnhill Arena.

The Auburn meet is being presented by Fayetteville Health & Rehab. The first 1,000 fans receive Tyson Foods Trading Cards. In addition, all kids are admitted free when accompanied by a paying adult.

There will also be a UA student drawing for a Blu-Ray player, and gymnasts will meet with fans and sign autographs after the meet.

As part of National Girl & Women in Sports Day, Dr. Mary Ann Turner will be recognized as a pioneer of women’s gymnastics on the West Coast.

The meet is also being televised by ESPNU and will air in a tape-delay broadcast on Sunday, Feb. 14, at 2 p.m.

The Razorbacks scored 196.750 points in last week’s victory, the highest point total in the nation for the week and the third-highest in school history.
