Gators Gymnastics Link to Pink

On Friday, No. 4 Florida’s gymnastics team (3-1, 3-0 SEC) returned home to play host to No. 13 Louisiana State (3-3, 1-2 SEC) for the fourth annual Gators Link to Pink Gymnastics Meet in the Stephen C. O'Connell Center. The message behind Friday’s meet was to raise awareness about breast cancer. Each team set aside their team colors to wear different shades of pink. A crowd of 9,198, third largest in school history, came out in pink to watch the Gators win 196.725 – 195005. The Gators had individual wins in 3 of the 4 events: Alicia Goodwin posted a 9.925 in the Uneven Bars, Liz Green received a 9.825 on the Balance Beam, and Ashanee Dickson along with Maranda Smith tied for the win in the Floor Exercise.
