Getting ready to watch the Gymbacks vs. the Bagwomen tonight and decided to look up the national rankings at roadtonationals.com. The ranked teams are listed by name, ranking score and conference, Auburn is #8. We’re at #15, Arkansas, 195.450, SEC. Immediately above us is North Carolina, 195.700… EAGL?
So it turns out that the ACC, in addition to being afraid to expand the CFP, does not sponsor gymnastics. UNC, NC State and Pitt are ACC schools in the EAGL, which stands for East Atlantic Gymnastics League and includes 8 schools in all.
There are other gymnastics-only conferences out West, but the SEC, Pac-12, Big 12 and B1G all sponsor gymnastics. Only the ACC doesn’t among Power 5 conferences. Lacrosse, yes, men’s soccer, yes, field hockey, yes, fencing, yes. But not gymnastics.
