LSU gymnastics got back to business in a big way this weekend, with huge wins in quad meet and then a season-high in a conference win over Missouri on Sunday.
And it should come as no surprise that senior Sarah Finnegan played a huge role in that success, and that it netted her FOURTH SEC Gymnast of the Week honor:
BATON ROUGE – Following a dominating win that included six event titles and a sweep of the all-around against four ranked teams, senior Sarah Finnegan was announced as the Southeastern Conference Gymnast of the Week, the league announced Tuesday.
Finnegan put up to the top all-around score in the league and top-three in the country with a 39.65 against No. 4 Utah, No. 15 Missouri and No. 26 Stanford. The Lee’s Summit, Missouri, native scored a 9.925 on bars and floor for event titles. Finnegan earned a “perfect” 9.95 on her Yurchenko Full that has a 9.95 start value to set a career high and win the title.
Here’s a look at one of those 9.95s on the weekend — her floor exercise from Sunday.
