he gymnastics team got its first feel for home competition last weekend, and it suited the team well, as the squad routed Penn at Teagle Hall. This weekend, the Red will get to taste the home advantage, as it hosts the Big Red Invitational tomorrow at 1 p.m.
The players said that the meet against Penn gave the Red a good sense of what to expect this weekend.
“It is more comfortable competing at home and it’s more fun,” said senior co-captain Megan Gilbert. “So we can use that to our advantage for our meet this weekend.”
Gilbert explained that the team really enjoyed having the home fans’ support, and that it gave the competitors more energy, which showed itself in the final results.
