A pair of Gators – Gabrielle Gallentine and Trinity Thomas – collected Southeastern Conference weekly gymnastics honors after No. 1 Florida’s win versus No. 24 Missouri.

Gallentine is the SEC Freshman Gymnast of the Week. This is Gallentine’s first such honor of her Gator career and UF’s first SEC Freshman of the Week award since the 2019 season.

Thomas claims her second SEC Gymnast of the Week honor of 2021, and this is the 13th such honor of her career. This honor goes to a Gator for the second consecutive week, as senior Megan Skaggs collected the honor in the final week of January.
