Hall named SEC Gymnast of the Week
BATON ROUGE - For the second straight week, LSU touts the SEC Gymnast of the Week. Last week, Rheagan Courville captured the award for the Tigers.
LSU's Lloimincia Hall earned Southeastern Conference Gymnast of the Week recognition Wednesday after she played a huge role in LSU's 196.875-196.575 upset win against No. 3 Florida last Friday.
As the final performer of the meet, Hall needed at least a 9.675 or better to seal the win, and she did much better than that - nailing her floor routine to win the event with a 9.95 and sending the Tigers to victory.
Hall led LSU by tying her career high in the all-around with a 39.450 to place second in the meet.
A sophomore from Dallas, Texas, Hall also tied her career high on beam with a 9.875, and she finished a quarter-tenth off her career best on bars as she posted a 9.825.
Hall's floor title against Florida is her first event crown of the season and the 11th of her career. Hall ranks No. 2 nationally on floor with a 9.95 average, and she is No. 10 in the all-around with a 39.350 average.
