Senior Ashley Sledge was named the SEC Gymnast of the Week, made official in a release from the conference Tuesday morning for her performance in Friday night’s win over Auburn.

Sledge, a senior, scored 9.9 in all three of her events: the floor exercise, the uneven bars and the vault. Sledge’s 9.9 on the floor tied her career high on that event and helped push Alabama’s floor exercise score to 49.500, a season-high for the team. Alabama also set a season-high on vault with a 49.475 in part to Sledge’s 9.9.

Alabama will go on the road again this Friday to Arkansas. Alabama is 1-2 on the road this season, beating Missouri to open the season but losing to Florida and Georgia in back-to-back weeks.
