By Amelia Young,
The Fisk University Women’s Gymnastics Team is making history as they make their hometown debut on Tuesday as they compete at Belmont.
It will mark the first time a historically Black college or university has hosted an NCAA Gymnastics competition in history.
It's happening on March 14 at Belmont's Curb Event Center at 7 p.m. against the Greenville University Panthers. Ticket information can be found here .
The team made history last year becoming the first gymnastics team at an HBCU to compete at this level.
It’s not only inspired the girls and coaches part of the team, but has inspired many across the country as well. Gyms in Las Vegas, Ann Arbor, Michigan and Athens, Georgia have been packed to see them compete and lines have even formed to meet the athletes.
