Bridget Sloan Named 2016 SEC Female Athlete of the Year

The Southeastern Conference named University of Florida senior gymnast Bridget Sloan the Roy F. Kramer SEC Female Athlete of the Year on Thursday—the icing on the cake to end an extremely impressive career at Florida.

Sloan is Florida’s career leader for all-around wins with 27, event titles with 95, and 10.0 marks with eight. Among her other achievements include two top national collegiate gymnast Honda Awards, two NCAA All-Around Champion titles, and a silver medal at the 2008 Beijing Olympics.

In a press release Sloan said, “What a surprise! I am honored to receive this award on behalf of the Gator program. I’m so happy that I chose to include the collegiate experience in my gymnastics career. It certainly has been a privilege to be a part of the Gator program and the Southeastern Conference.”

This marks the third consecutive year that a Gator has been chosen for SEC Female Athlete of the Year following softball players Lauren Haeger in 2015 and Hannah Rogers in 2014. It’s also the 12th time a Gator has been named athlete of the year since 1984.
