The 2022 Auburn gymnastics team will open the year at No. 14, the Women’s Collegiate Gymnastics Association announced Friday, Dec. 14.

 “It’s always exciting when the preseason poll comes out because it means our season is right around the corner,” said head coach Jeff Graba. “Being ranked No. 14 in the coaches’ poll is as good a place as any to start. I’m excited for this team to get started and show what we’re capable of.”

 Three Southeastern Conference schools are in the Top 10 and all eight schools are in the Top 20. Florida will start the year at No. 2, while LSU and Alabama are at No. 5 and No. 6, respectively. Arkansas is 11th, Kentucky is at No. 13, Georgia is at No. 15 and Missouri rounds out the SEC schools at No. 16.

The Tigers will also face No. 1 and defending national champion Michigan in March. The team kicks off the 2022 campaign at No. 35 North Carolina, Jan. 7.
