BATON ROUGE – The LSU gymnastics team (7-1, 5-0 SEC) moved to No.4 in the rankings after six weeks into the 2018 season, RoadtoNationals.com released Monday.

National rankings are based on a team’s overall season average for the first few weeks of the season before switching to the regional qualifying score (RQS).
