SEC Gymnast of the Week
Alex McMurtry • Florida
Senior • Midlothian, Va.

McMurtry closed 2018 regular-season action with a sweep of the event titles in the March 9 dual versus No. 13 Nebraska. She took at least a share of each of the five event titles, including equaling Florida's all-around record of 39.825 (set by Alaina Johnson and equaled by Bridget Sloan, both in 2014). The all-around total ties for No. 3 in the nation for 2018 and equals the nation's high all-around total turned in last weekend. McMurtry shared the vault win (9.95) and took the other wins outright - bars (9.975), beam (9.975) and floor (9.925). She is the first Gator to sweep event titles since All-American Ashanée Dickerson with her 2011 performance at LSU.

SEC Specialist of the Week
Lexie Priessman • LSU
Junior • Cincinnati, Calif.

Priessman posted a 9.975 in the fifth spot of the lineup to capture a share of the bars title against No. 24 N.C. State. Her 9.975 matched a career high. LSU's bars lineup posted a 49.575 for the fifth-highest score in school history. LSU is one of four teams in the nation to 49.575 or higher on bars this season and the squad has done it three times in 2018. Overall, Priessman owns 12 bars titles for her career for the 10th-most in school history.

SEC Freshman of the Week
Jazmyn Foberg • Florida
Freshman • Bayville, N.J.

Foberg turned in collegiate-best marks for both events performed in the regular-season finale versus No. 13 Nebraska. She finished second on bars with a 9.95 and tied for third on vault with a 9.90. Foberg has been a part of seven vault lineups, with all scoring a 9.80 or better. She has also been part of six bars lineups, with each of the last four scoring a 9.80 or better.
