SEC Gymnast of the Week
Kennedi Edney • LSU
Sophomore • Chino, Calif.

Edney posted three career highs and took home event titles on vault and bars Sunday afternoon against No. 15 Auburn to lead the Tigers to back-to-back SEC regular season titles and a perfect record against league opponents. She finished with a 39.775 in the all-around for the third-highest score in the country and tied with teammate Sarah Finnegan for the best in the league in 2018. Edney became the third LSU gymnast to post a 39.700 or higher this season, which marked the first time in school history a trio has achieved that score in the same season. She posted a 9.975 on bars and floor for career highs. Edney has now scored a 9.975 or higher on three of four events during her collegiate career.

Senior • Redwood City, Calif.

Macadaeg captured the beam title against No. 15 Auburn on Sunday with a 9.95, a season high that tied her career high. She led off the beam squad that posted a 49.525, which tied their season high and marked the second-best score in the nation this week.
