Arkansas gymnastics begins Friday with most season tickets sold

With its season set to get under way Friday night in legendary Barnhill Arena, the No. 15 Arkansas gymnastics team has already set a new program record with 2,250 season tickets being sold.

This marks the third consecutive year that the Gymbacks have set a new season-ticket sales record under fifth-year head coach, and former Olympic gold medalist, Jordyn Wieber.

Season tickets and individual meet tickets are still available.

Arkansas is coming off its 19th straight regional appearance, where they finished with a new regional team score record of 197.275, and a new regional floor record of 49.500. The Gymbacks finished 17th in the country, ending the season in the Top 20 for the 18th straight season.

This season will include three home meets inside Barnhill, along with two meets in Bud Walton Arena. Arkansas returns a core of veterans, with Frankie Price, Jensen Scalzo, Leah Smith, Cami Weaver and Lauren Williams. The Gymbacks also added beam All-American Sirena Linton from Arizona, as a graduate transfer, along with four promising freshmen – Chandler Buntin, Dakota Essenpries, Hailey Klein and Priscilla Park.

Arkansas will host Georgia at 6:45 p.m. on Friday night.
