BATON ROUGE – LSU gymnasts Sarah Finnegan, Kennedi Edney, McKenna Kelley, Lexie Priessman and Reagan Campbell combined to earn an SEC-best 10 Women’s College Gymnastics Association (WCGA) Regular Season All-America honors, the association announced Wednesday.

A gymnast earns All-America honors if they finish in the top-16 of the final NQS individual event rankings. LSU ranks first in the league and tied for third in the nation with 10 honors.

Overall, LSU gymnasts have combined to earn 66 All-America honors in the regular season since the association begin this honor in 2013. LSU has now combined to earn 249 regular season and meet honors in program history.

Finnegan, the two-time SEC all-around champion, earned honors on vault, bars, beam and all-around. With the four honors, Finnegan pushed her total for her career to 19. She’s just four away from tying Rheagan Courville for the most in school history.

The Lee’s Summit, Missouri, native is one of seven gymnasts in the nation and one of two in the SEC with four or more All-America honors. Finnegan finished ranked in the top-eight of all three events and all-around. Finnegan ended the season ranked second in the all-around, third on bars, fourth on beam and seventh on floor. The senior joined Kyla Ross of UCLA and Mykayla Skinner of Utah as the only gymnasts in the nation to finish in the top-eight of four or more rankings.

Edney pushed her All-America total to nine after finishing the season ranked 12th on vault, 13th in the all-around and 16th on floor. Priessman earned her sixth All-America honor on bars after finishing sixth in the nation and Kelley earned her third on floor after finishing 10th. Campbell earned her first honors after ending the year ranked 15th on beam.

The third-ranked Tigers will take a weekend off from competition for the first time this season before hosting the NCAA Baton Rouge Regional April 4-6. The Tigers own the top seed and the teams will advance to the NCAA Championships. LSU will take on Utah, Minnesota, Auburn, BYU, Arizona, State, Arkansas, George Washington and Lindenwood inside the PMAC.
