The Gator Gymnastics team finished in third place at Saturday’s SEC Championship. The final four top scores were as follows:
- LSU: 197.40
- Alabama: 196.975
- Florida: 196.825
- Kentucky: 196.55
The Gators earned at least partial titles in all four rotations. Freshman Alyssa Baumann scored 9.975 on beam. This was her collegiate-best score. Baumann also earned All-SEC and SEC All-Freshman awards. Florida’s overall score on beam was 49.550 and led the meet.
Florida performed well on vault, with senior Alex McMurtry scoring at the top. A nearly-perfect 9.975 earned her the event title. The Gators scored a 49.475 in this rotation. Halfway through the meet, Florida had the lead.
On uneven bars, McMurtry and sophomore Amelia Hundley were standouts. Each earned All-SEC honors in this event. The Gators overall score on uneven bars was a 49.400.
The floor rotation was what ending up hurting the Gators the most. Junior Alicia Boren earned the event title with a 9.90. However, McMurtry and freshman Megan Skaggs each fell in their routines. This caused a significant drop in the Gators score for this rotation, earning a 48.400.
