Pitt’s gymnastics squad is set to participate in the N.C. State Sweetheart Invitational on Saturday at 7 p.m. The meet, which will be broadcast live on ESPN3.com will also include North Carolina, George Washington, Bowling Green and William & Mary.
“We have a very big weekend coming up,” said head coach Debbie Yohman. “We meet up with three EAGL opponents, plus Bowling Green and William & Mary. The competition should be close and exciting and big meets like this are unusual during the regular season. We will have two bye rotations, which should be good practice for the EAGL Championships in March. It’s important that we perform well to see how we stack up against N.C. State, UNC and George Washington.”
Senior Alyssa Adrian will attempt to continue her streak as she has won an event title in every meet to date this season. Adrian won the floor exercise in each of the first three meets of the year and has won the uneven bars title in the last two meets.
Adrian and the Panthers will compete in the rare six-team regular season meet, which can be viewed live online at ESPN3.com on Saturday night.
