The No. 11 Georgia gymnastics team (1-3, 1-2) fell at No. 10 Arkansas (1-3, 1-3) with a final score of 197.175-196.125 on Friday night in the Barnhill Arena.

“This is a big improvement from our last road meet,” head coach Courtney Kupets Carter said. “We’ll take it. There was improvement all around, though, especially on bars. The team is still learning to go out there and be aggressive.”


For the second time this season, Georgia got its highest rotation score of the meet on bars. Snead and freshman Marissa Oakley scored career highs. Snead tied her best with a 9.9 and Oakley improved her best by .075 with a 9.875.


Rachel Dickson’s 9.850 led Georgia in its second rotation, where the GymDogs posted a 48.875 on vault. Snead followed closely with a 9.825. Arkansas held the lead through the second, 98.275- 98.050.


On floor, Dickson led the GymDogs scoring a 9.900 for her routine. Snead contributed a 9.875, while Jasmine Arnold and Sabrina Vega followed with a 9.825 and 9.800, respectively.


Georgia closed out the meet on beam with a 48.975. Snead led with a 9.925, while Dickson posted a 9.850 and Vivi Babalis scored a 9.825 for the event.
