Johnson has been among the nation’s top gymnasts throughout her career. Her winning all-around total of 39.825 turned in last Friday is the nation’s 2014 leader and set the Florida record. It is the nation’s top all-around total since Georgia’s Courtney Kupets posted a 39.85 in 2009. Last season, Johnson took the 2013 NCAA uneven bars title and helped Florida win its first NCAA team title. A 10-time All-American, Johnson joined teammate Kytra Hunter as the only two in 2012 NCAA Championships’ competition to earn the maximum of five All-America honors. She was named the 2011 Southeastern Conference Freshman of the Year and won the league’s bars title as a sophomore.

 

Johnson has been named to the last three SEC Academic Honor Roll and National Association of Collegiate Gymnastics Coaches Scholastic All-America teams and holds a 3.78 GPA in sociology. She has also been an active member of the Gainesville community, volunteering in more than 50 different activities.
