BIRMINGHAM – Auburn gymnast MJ Rott has been named SEC Freshman of the Week for her performance at then No. 2 LSU as announced by the league office on Tuesday.
Rott scored a nearly perfect 9.975 on vault in just her third collegiate meet. The score ties for the program record with former Auburn gymnast and three-time All-American Julie Dwyer.
It was the top vault score since 2008 for Auburn.
The score helped the Tigers record the second-best vault total in program history with a 49.425. Rott competed in three events on the day, helping Auburn to a 196.825, the best road score in program history.
Auburn is in action next on Friday when it visits No. 10 Arkansas. For the latest on Auburn Gymnastics, follow @AUGymnastics on Twitter.
