Four Gymnasts Named Scholastic All-Americans
BATON ROUGE - Four LSU gymnasts earned recognition as 2011-12 Scholastic All-Americans, the National Association of Collegiate Gymnastics Coaches/Women (NACGC/W) announced Wednesday.
The NACGC/W annually awards Scholastic All-America status to gymnasts who finish the academic year with a 3.5 grade point average or better.
A senior on the 2012 squad, Lee earned the honor for the second straight season with a 3.57 GPA in sport administration. Lee wrapped up her LSU career in style by securing 2012 Second-Team All-SEC and Second-Team All-America honors on vault.
Prunty earned back-to-back Scholastic All-America honors, posting a 3.88 GPA in sport administration in 2011-12. She competed on beam in 2012, serving as the leadoff performer in five meets with a season high of 9.825.
The award is the second straight for Duvall, who finished the 2011-12 academic year with a 3.91 GPA in biology. Last season Duvall competed three times on floor while serving as an alternate on beam.
Fleming received the honor for the third straight year after earning a 3.93 GPA in microbiology. Fleming, a bars specialist, competed in the event in nine meets with a season high of 9.775 at Florida.
