From Bama Hammer:

An elite weekend for all Alabama Crimson Tide teams

Every Alabama Crimson Tide team has been shining in 2021

The 2020-21 academic year might go down as the best in the history of the Alabama Crimson Tide. Fans are used to watching Alabama football succeed, but there are plenty of teams in Tuscaloosa worth watching this year.

Obviously, this is usually Alabama basketball’s time to shine. They alone are exceeding all expectations with a chance of earning a one-seed and an SEC title still on the line. The Tide are usually near the bubble at this point, but they are on the other end of the spectrum for the first time in many fans’ lives.

Still, Alabama basketball is having to share the spotlight this season. Baseball season began, and the Alabama Crimson Tide are off to a 3-0 start with a series sweep of McNeese State. While the road to the College World Series will be hard, Alabama is at least starting in the right direction.

The Alabama softball team is also off to an undefeated start. The Tide are 8-0 including two wins against the LSU Tigers, who are ranked in the top 10 of college softball. The Alabama Crimson Tide are ranked fifth and have a shot of winning their second national championship in program history.

Alabama softball is led by veterans, but pitching has been a strength so far. Montana Fouts and Sarah Cornell combined for a perfect game against Alabama State with 11 strikeouts in just five innings. This team looked poised to contend for a title last season before COVID-19 canceled the year, and they look ready to compete once again.

The Alabama Crimson Tide have also taken over the gymnastics scene once again. They beat LSU in gymnastics last week. The Tigers are one of the best gymnastics teams in the country, so this is a massive win as the season continues.

Women’s basketball also won this weekend. The SEC is stacked, but the Tide are still near the top of the conference due to some big wins against Mississippi State, Florida and LSU.

From soccer to the swim team, all Alabama teams have seen some success in recent days. By the end of the semester, we might see a few more trophies added to the Alabama Crimson Tide’s case.

The Byrne Notice recaps much of this past weekend’s success:

https://rolltide.com/news/2021/2/22/general-byrne-notice-presented-by-mercedes-benz.aspx

Byrne Notice presented by Mercedes-Benz

Oats Contract Extension

We were thrilled to be able to announce a contract extension with head men's basketball coach Nate Oats last week that runs through 2027. In just his second season in Tuscaloosa, Coach Oats and his staff have our team ranked in the top 10 and in first place in the Southeastern Conference standings. We know that Nate, Crystal and their family have embraced our community and fan base as you all have with them, and we look forward to what is to come for Alabama men's basketball.

Strong Showing at SEC Women's Swimming and Diving Championships

Congratulations to our women's swimming and diving squad for an amazing run at last week's SEC Championships, where they posted their best finish since 2003 (fourth) as well winning eight gold medals, tying for the most in school history. In addition to winning three individual titles, Rhyan White was voted the SEC Swimmer of the Meet and earned the SEC Commissioner's Trophy as the meet's individual high point scorer. The men's team gets their championship run started on Tuesday in Columbia, Mo., and we wish them the best of luck.

Gymnastics Posts Season-Best Score to Down No. 2 LSU during its annual Power of Pink Meet

Our gymnastics team had an extraordinary night against LSU last Friday, using 197.725, its best score since 2017, to upset the No. 2-ranked Tigers. Sophomore Luisa Blanco led the way with a career-best 39.825 in the all-around, the third highest score in school history. We've got two more meets left in this year's SEC-only regular season schedule before rolling into the SEC Championships, which have been moved to Huntsville, Ala., on March 20.

Spring Sports Open Season with Wins

Several of our spring sports, both traditional and in this pandemic year, opened their seasons on a positive note over the last week with softball, baseball and soccer all collecting wins on opening night. Softball, after having to alter its plans due to inclement weather in Texas, started 2021 off in Montgomery, defeating Alabama State, 10-0 in five innings. Our team is now 8-0 after last weekend's Easton Bama Bash, which it capped off with a 13-5 run-rule decision over No. 8 LSU on Sunday. Our soccer team, which competed in its usual fall season as well, posted a 2-0 shutout over Columbus State on Friday to begin its spring slate, while baseball, also playing its first game on Friday, swept the series with McNeese, scoring a combined 23 runs over the three-game weekend.

Both Basketballs Win on Senior Day

It was a great weekend of basketball in Tuscaloosa with both of our teams celebrating victories on their respective Senior Days. On Saturday, our men's team moved one game closer to an SEC regular-season title with its 82-78 win over Vanderbilt and recognized its six seniors following the game. On Sunday, our women's team completed its season sweep of Mississippi State, the first time since 1991, with a 71-63 victory over the Bulldogs. Our trio of women's seniors was honored prior to the game with a host of family members on hand in the stands. It's been incredible to watch what these two groups have done for their respective programs since arriving on campus, and we are looking forward to what is still to come in the postseason for both our men and our women.

Track & Field Gears up for SEC Indoor Championships

Following its three indoor events at Vanderbilt, South Carolina and Arkansas this season, our men's and women's track & field teams are headed back to Fayetteville for the 2021 SEC Indoor Championships. The event is scheduled to run Thursday, Feb. 25 through Saturday, Feb. 27. Best of luck to our teams as they compete for conference titles!

University Spotlight

There were nine recipients of this year's Premier Awards, The University of Alabama's highest honors as selected by the Alabama Awards Committee. These nine individuals, made up of students, faculty and staff, are models of the highest standards of scholarship, service, leadership and character. Congratulations to all!
