Softball's bats heat up against UAB

Alabama needed to get its offense going. On a cold Tuesday night at Rhoades Stadium, the lineup finally started to heat up.  The Crimson Tide (20-7) faced two early deficits, falling behind 1-0 and 3-2 in each of the first two innings, but fought back to win the game 10-5 to end a two-game losing streak.


Baseball's rally falls short against Georgia

Alabama had chances, but it failed to capitalize. It had a chance in the seventh and in the ninth, but failed to do the damage it needed, falling to Georgia 6-5 in the Sunday finale. “We’re two swings away from being 3-0 in the SEC, and I guess you could say we are a swing away from being 0-3,” Alabama coach Brad Bohannon said. “That’s SEC baseball for you.”


Gymnastics ties season-high score in vault during senior night

Crimson and white confetti rained down on Alabama’s gymnasts as they embraced each other in an emotional group hug on the middle of the floor apparatus. Although the Crimson Tide had just notched a season best 49.575 on floor, shattering its previous season high of 49.4, the celebratory confetti swirled around them for a different reason. It was senior night, and a tribute video highlighting the careers of Alabama’s four soon-to-be graduates had just played on the big screen. Immediately before that, seniors Kiana Winston and Nickie Guerrero had ended the final regular season home meet of their careers with a bang. The last two gymnasts to compete on floor, Winston posted an impressive 9.925 while Guerrero scored a career-best 9.95.
