Head Coach Shannon Welker
Sept. 30, 2013
COLUMBIA, Mo. - Fresh off their first intersquad session of the off-season, the Missouri Gymnastics program continues to prepare for the upcoming 2013-14 season. Entering their second season in the competitive Southeastern Conference, the Tigers and their new coaching staff look to make their presence known around the league.
Head Coach Shannon Welker enters his first season leading the Tigers, and announced the 2013-14 schedule this week. Mizzou will go against four teams that competed in last season's NCAA National Championships, all of which who lie within the SEC.
Mizzou kicks off the 2013-14 campaign on Sunday, Dec. 8 with a Black and Gold Exhibition meet in Columbia against Lindenwood University. The Tigers will then head into the season on Friday, Jan. 10 with a road trip to Tuscaloosa, Ala., as they compete against Alabama. The Crimson Tide are consistently one of the top gymnastics programs in the country, and will present an excellent early opportunity for the Tigers.
Hearnes Center will host the regular season home opener on Jan. 17 when the Arkansas Razorbacks arrive to Columbia. The outing will mark a special "Pink Meet" for the gymnastics team. Kentucky comes to Columbia on Jan. 24 to close out the January slate.
February's schedule begins with a road trip to Raleigh, N.C. on Feb. 1, to take on North Carolina State from the Atlantic Coast Conference. Mizzou will then host SEMO on Feb. 7 for the annual Beauty & The Beast Meet. Another tough conference road trip is next for the Tigers, as they face the Georgia Bulldogs on Friday, Feb. 14. On Feb. 21, a non-conference home meet against George Washington takes place at Hearnes, before the Tigers close out the month of February with a conference showdown at LSU on Feb. 28.
Mar. 7 marks the last road trip of the year, as Mizzou travels to face conference foe Auburn. The Tigers wrap up the 2013-14 schedule in style on Mar. 14 with a home meet in Columbia against the Florida Gators. Fresh off a 2012-13 NCAA National Championship title, the Gators will provide Mizzou with an outstanding challenge before they head to the SEC Championships in Birmingham, Ala.
