Feb. 13, 2018

DAVIS, Calif. - UC Davis senior Alexis Brown captured her sixth Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Gymnast of the Week award while freshman Kelley Hebert won her second Freshman of the Week nod, the conference office announced on Tuesday. The honors cover the week ending February 11.

Brown, an animal science major and alumna of Team OC Gymnastics, won the individual all-around in Friday’s home triangular with Utah State and Sacramento State. She posted a 9.850 on beam, 9.825 on bars and floor en route to a season-high 39.275 all-around total. That marks the 13th time in her career and the fifth occasion in 2018 that Brown has exceeded the 39-point barrier in the all-around.

Hebert, a first-year human development student from Dublin’s Edge Gymnastics, compiled a career-high all-around score of 38.975. She finished second in Friday’s tri meet on both vault (9.800) and balance beam (9.875), becoming just the second Aggie in program history to score that high on beam as a freshman. 

UC Davis scored a 194.525 in the meet, finishing second behind USU and .125 ahead of Causeway Cup rival Sacramento State. The Aggies return to action on Saturday for a 5 p.m. (PST) road dual at Air Force.
