She’s picked up league honors four times in 2013, claiming the Week 5 SEC Gymnast of the Week and Week 1, 6 and 8 Freshman of the Week.

 

Sloan opened competition with a pair of collegiate-best marks versus Kentucky on Feb. 22. She claimed her third consecutive uneven bars title by upping her bars best to 9.975. Sloan has won four bar titles in the last five meets, all with marks of 9.925 or better. She also upped her vault best to 9.95 to take second overall. Four of her last five vault performances have earned a mark of 9.90 or better.

 

Sloan shares UF’s lead for 2013 event titles at 10 (four uneven bars, three all-around, two beam and one vault).

 

She is No. 2 in uneven bars (9.915) and No. T7 in vault (9.90) in the latest national rankings. Sloan is a six-time (and current) member of the U.S. Senior National Team. She is the first World Championships’ all-around champion (2009) to compete as a collegian.
