    SEC Gymnasts Of The Week

    SEC Gymnasts of the Week (January 28, 2014)
     
     
    SEC Gymnasts of the Week: Bridget Sloan and Kytra Hunter, Florida
    The pair shared the all-around and floor exercise wins versus No. 6 Georgia Friday. Their winning marks are the nation’s leaders – 39.70 (all-around) and 10.0 (floor exercise). They are the first Gators to score a perfect floor mark since 1997 and are among only four Gators all-time to post a 10.0 on floor. 
    They helped Florida earn the nation’s leading team (198.05) and floor (49.875) totals. The floor total is the nation’s highest in any event since 2006.
    The duo has won the past two NCAA & SEC all-around titles – Hunter (2012) and Sloan (2013). The all-around win is the 12th for Hunter and the eighth for Sloan. 
    Hunter has won floor in each of Florida’s 2014 meets. Sloan also used a 9.925 to claim her second consecutive vault win. This season, Sloan leads the Gators with seven event titles and Hunter is second with five. 
    They also are the leaders on the current team in career event titles – Hunter now has 44 all-time while Sloan owns 29.

    She then tied for first on vault with a season-high 9.925.
