AB tumblers to host Oregon on Tuesday

PHILIPPI – The Alderson Broaddus University acrobatics and tumbling team will host the University of Oregon at 7 p.m. Tuesday at Rex Pyles Arena,

The Battlers visited Oregon last week, falling to the Ducks and Hawaii Pacific in the final standings after the team event. AB received second place in the compulsory toss event and tied top-ranked Oregon in toss event three. The Battlers also received season high scores in both toss and pyramid heats.

“It has been exciting to see the growth and enthusiasm on campus, and I am anxious to show the community so they can see what these athletes can do,” AB coach Jacqueline Svadeba.

The acrobatics and tumbling team at AB is in its inaugural season and is a full member of the athletic department. The sport embraces the athletic elements of competitive cheer and gymnastics, while creating a high energy and fan-friendly atmosphere.
