A near perfect floor exercise mark helped Gator junior Nya Reed claim her second consecutive Southeastern Conference Specialist Gymnast of the Week honor.
Nya Reed – SEC Specialist of the Week:
* Floor – 9.975 won floor exercise title and set collegiate best. One of two in nation to post nearly-perfect event scores last weekend, and Reed was the only 9.975 on floor (other 9.975 – Minnesota’s Lexy Ramler / beam). * Vault – 9.85 shared third overall with teammate Megan Skaggs and Georgia’s Abbey Ward. * T3 in nation for floor (9.95 average) and No. T12 for vault (9.875) * Five of last seven floor routines (dating back to 2020) earned 9.925 or better * One of five gymnasts in nation with a two-meet average that ranks among the top 12 on two events (vault & floor)
UP NEXT FOR THE GATORS: It’s another top-10 matchup when No. 1 Florida visits No. 8 Arkansas.
