The No. 13 Razorback gymnastics team lost to the No. 6 Georgia Bulldogs 197.650-195.675 Saturday afternoon in Athens, Ga.
“We fought really hard tonight despite having a couple of falls on a few events,” co-head coach Mark Cook said. “All in all it was a good road experience for us and we need to go to Nebraska next week and tighten all of our routines up.”
Senior Katherine Grable scored a 39.6 en route to winning her seventh all-around title in eight meets so far this season.
She began the meet with a 9.90 on the bars, which tied her career-best mark on the event for the second meet in a row.
Grable followed that up with a 9.925 on the vault, a 9.925 on the floor and a 9.85 on the beam. With her score on the floor, she earned her seventh floor title of the season.
Arkansas opened the meet with a 49.225 on the bars, tying its season-best mark in the event. Senior Shelby Salmon scored a season-best 9.90 and sophomore Keara Glover put up a 9.85 in the first routine of her season to go along with freshman Amanda Wellick’s 9.825.
“It was great to have a lot of new people in the lineup,” Grable said. “It really brought the team closer together tonight and everyone had to work a lot harder tonight.”
The Razorbacks are back in action in one week, when they visit Lincoln, Neb., to take on the Nebraska Cornhuskers Saturday, March 8 at 6 p.m.
The Razorbacks then finish the season at home against Oklahoma before heading to Alabama for the Southeastern Conference Championship meet.
