TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -
University of Alabama President Judy Bonner stopped by the gymnastics practice gym to congratulate the 2014 Southeastern Conference Champion Crimson Tide gymnastics team Thursday afternoon.
Dr. Bonner, who was on hand last Saturday in Birmingham, Ala., when Alabama won its eighth SEC Championship in the Birmingham Jefferson Convention Center, also praised the gymnastics team for their hard work in the classroom.
She also told the team that although she wouldn't be in Seattle on April 5, when Alabama competes in the NCAA Regional Championships, she looked forward to seeing them return to Birmingham for the NCAA Championships April 18-20.
The Crimson Tide travels west next week as the No. 1 seed at the NCAA Seattle Regional where they will be vying for one of two NCAA Championship berths against Nebraska, Boise State, Washington, Denver and BYU.
