Perfection in practice

The Arizona gymnastics team is preparing for its first multiple-team meet of the season when it heads to Lincoln, Neb., this weekend for the 2 p.m. Sunday event.

“”It’s a little quicker than normal,”” said head coach Bill Ryden. “”At our home meets, we go one person from one team and then the other. When it’s four teams, we just go, so things happen faster.””

The No. 20 Gymcats will compete against the University of Nebraska, the University of Denver and West Virginia University, which are ranked 11th, 18th and 25th, respectively.

“”(The coaches) are being really picky this week (in practice),”” said senior Sarah Tomczyk. “”We have to stick our landings in order for them to count. In order for floor routines to count, we can’t step out of bounds, and we can’t have any wobbles on beam. It’s just training the way you want to compete.””
