Alabama Gymnast Gets SEC Honor
Jacob, who is ranked in the top-25 nationally in four events, earned her latest conference honor by tying her career-best of 9.950 on the floor exercise to help lift Alabama to a win over then No. 5 Georgia. Her score also helped push Alabama to a 49.625 team mark on the floor exercise, the fourth highest floor total in school history.
This is the fourth SEC honor this season for the Tide and the second for Jacob who was the SEC Gymnast of the Week following the Crimson Tide's season-opening win over Missouri. The Raleigh, N.C. native was also tabbed with the Capital One Impact Performance of the Week following the Missouri meet. Katie Bailey has twice been named the SEC Freshman of the Week following the Missouri and LSU meets.
Jacob and her teammates take to the road this weekend, traveling to Auburn where they will take on the Tigers at 7 p.m. CST.
