BATON ROUGE, La. — When LSU football and baseball have you down, there’s always the LSU gymnastics team to lift your spirits.
The No. 4 LSU gymnastics team posted the best score any NCAA team has all season on Friday with a 198.175, the fourth best score in school history, en route to a victory over Texas Woman’s. This included a school-record 49.725 on uneven bars, also the best score any team in the country has posted this season. On top of everything, LSU achieved this without using its full lineup, as regular all-arounders Myia Hambrick and Sarah Finnegan both rested on floor, where Hambrick ranks as the nation’s No. 1 competitor.
“T.E.A.M. is ‘Total Effort All Members,'” LSU gymnastics coach D-D Breaux said. “That’s the point we keep driving him. We’re going to rely on the whole team. The championship of this team can’t rest on the back of one person. Sarah Finnegan and Myia Hambrick can’t carry this team to the finish line. It’s got to be a team effort.”
And a team effort it was. LSU’s gymnasts scored 9.90 or better on 14 out of 20 counting scores with a low score of 9.850. This included an impressive all-around victory from sophomore Kennedi Edney, who scored a 9.90s on vault and bars, a 9.875 on beam and a career-high 9.95 on floor.
“It boosted me up. I went through this period the first few meets of me having all this stress on me because I thought I had to carry the coaches on my back. Having the coaches and my teammates tell me that’s not what needed to happen, that I had to compete for myself, that really helped me to feel calm.”
But Edney wasn’t the only athlete setting career highs. Junior Lexie Priessman matched Edney with a 9.95 from the anchor position on floor and sophomore Ruby Harrold added a 9.90 on floor to go with her 9.95 on bars.
For Harrold, this weekend was a confidence boost after a rough start to her season where she teetered in and out of the lineup. When talking about her comeback after the meet, Harrold brought Priessman and Edney to tears.
“It’s just been great today and Friday to be back out there doing the gymnastics that I know I can do,” Harrold said. “Yes, I’ve been struggling with some things. But the whole team together helped me personally through it. Today in particular, to be able to give something back to them as a thank you for helping me get through that, it’s a great kind of honor.”
The LSU gymnastics team travels to Athens, Ga., on Friday for its third meet in seven days against the SEC rival, No. 14 Georgia Bulldogs. Action is scheduled to begin at 6:00 p.m. CT and the meet will be televised nationally on the SEC Network.

The University of Alabama softball team took its first loss of the season when it stranded two runners in scoring position during its final at-bat against No. 11 Baylor, resulting in a 2-1 loss in the Black and Gold Invitation on Sunday.
Alabama outscored its opponents 34-4 in the four games at the weekend tournament hosted by Southern Miss.
Freshman Kaylee Tow hit a home run in the third inning for Alabama’s lone run Sunday. Senior ace Alexis Osorio (2-1) took the loss. Both runs were scored on an infield single by Carlee Wallace in the first inning.
No. 9 Alabama opened the tournament with an 11-1 victory over Southern Miss on Friday. The win was keyed by home runs by junior Caroline Hardy, sophomore Claire Jenkins and junior Merris Schroder. Hardy went 3-3 with a career-high three RBI.
It was the first time the Crimson Tide had home runs by three different players since the 2017 season opener against Towson.
On Saturday, Alabama defeated No. 24 McNeese 11-1, and Mississippi Valley State, 11-0.
Tow went 3-for-5 on the day with a three-run home run against the Cowgirls and an RBI-triple against the Devilettes. Junior Reagan Dykes, senior Peyton Grantham and sophomore Claire Jenkins also hit hime runs.
Junior Courtney Gettins (2-0) earned the win against McNeese, allowing just one run on three hits, and freshman Madison Preston (2-0) yielded two late hits in the fifth inning against Mississippi Valley State.
Alabama (6-1) will play its home opener on Friday while hosting the Easton Bama Bash over the weekend. The Crimson Tide is scheduled to play five games against Georgia State, Northern Iowa and No. 8/6 Florida State.

John Daly has been somewhat of an American treasure for a long time now, but the former Arkansas golfer took it to another level on Sunday.
Daly hit a hole-in-one during the final round of the Chubb Classic, and did so while wearing a unique pair of American flag pants.

Useful shot, John! The celebration was muted but the shot was pure.
Daly finished the tournament at 13-under par and finishes the tournament in 8th place. Joe Durant won with a score of 19-under par.
Daly turned professional in 1987 after a collegiate career at the University of Arkansas. His personal battles have been well-documented, but it’s good to see him having success on the golf course again. He hasn’t won a tournament since the 2004 Buick Invitational, but placing in the top 10 is something to be proud of. He finished just two strokes away from a tie for 2nd place.
His son, Jon Daly II, is also a golfer and is coming off an impressive win in the junior circuit. It’s also been a little under a year since the younger Daly got his first ace.

Like father, like son. Perhaps the elder Daly can pass on a few fashion tips as well.
