Tide looks for better start against No. 15 Boise State

Jason Galloway

Alabama trailed by a point and a half after one rotation last week at No. 10 Arkansas before coming back to win by .15.

The Crimson Tide can only hope it won’t have another disastrous performance on bars and that a victory in tonight’s home meet against No. 15 Boise State will come a little easier.

Half of Alabama’s routines will be from freshmen tonight. Sophomore Marissa Gutierrez is not in the lineup, and two gymnasts – sophomore Becca Alexin and freshman Hannah Toussaint – will compete on their first ever collegiate routines. Here is the complete lineup for the Tide.
