Gainesville, Fla.

Bridget Sloan picked up her third consecutive Southeastern Conference Gymnast of the Week honor Tuesday.

GAINESVILLE, Fla. – Claiming at least a share of four event titles versus then No. 1 Oklahoma  – including winning her third-consecutive all-around title with the nation’s leading total of 2014 – gave sophomore Bridget Sloan (Pittsboro, Ind.) her third straight Southeastern Conference Gymnast of the Week honor, the league office announced Tuesday. LSU’s Lloimincia Hall is the SEC Specialist of the Week and Alabama’s Katie Bailey is the SEC Freshman of the Week.  

 

Sloan’s winning all-around total of 39.75 versus the Sooners equals her collegiate best for the fourth time, as she last earned that total in 2013 NCAA Super Six competition. She also shared her third consecutive vault title with teammate Kytra Hunter with team season-high marks of 9.95. Sloan won bars (9.90) and equaled UF’s season-best of 9.95 to top the beam standings.

 

This season, Sloan leads the Gators with 11 event titles. She now owns 33 titles as a collegiate.

 

Sloan is the first to be named SEC Gymnast of the Week for three consecutive weeks since Georgia’s Courtney Kupets opened the 2009 season with three straight honors.

 

Sloan was Week II recipient and shared the Week III honor with teammate Kytra Hunter. Sloan is the defending NCAA all-around champion and also received the 2013 Honda Award as the nation’s top collegiate gymnast.

 

In the fourth national rankings of the season, Sloan is tied for first on vault (9.938), No. T-5 in floor (9.925), No. 6 in all-around (39.506) and No. T-6 on bars (9.894).

 

Next up, the No. 1 Gators travel to Lexington, Ky., to face Kentucky (4-3, 1-2 SEC) on Friday, Feb. 7. Meet time is set for 7 p.m. in the Memorial Coliseum.
