Ashley Sledge Named SEC Gymnast of the Week
Coming off season-best scores of 9.9 on the vault, uneven bars and floor exercise against Auburn, Alabama senior Ashley Sledge was named Southeastern Conference Gymnast of the Week Tuesday afternoon according the league office.
The senior led Alabama to a season-best 197.650 against in-state rival No. 15 Auburn. The Crimson Tide’s total was the highest score in the nation last week.
“I’m very proud of Ashley,” UA head coach Sarah Patterson said. “Prior to the Auburn meet, we talked about working for those extra half-tenths in her routines. She did just that and went out and moved forward on all three events Friday night.’
The No. 4 ranked Crimson Tide travels to Fayetteville, Ark. this week where they will take on No. 19 Arkansas on Friday at 7 p.m. CT. Alabama then returns home to face fifth-ranked UCLA on Friday, March 1 at 7:30 p.m. CT.
