Tide's Sims SEC Freshman Honoree
Sims earned the award after leading Alabama on the balance beam to close out the win over No. 10 Auburn last Friday night in Auburn Arena. She scored a career-best 9.925 on the balance beam, pacing Alabama to a season-best 49.325 team score. She also scored a career-best 9.875 to lead off the Tide's floor exercise rotation, setting the tone for a 49.500, the team's second highest total of the season.
Both performances provided a second-half spark on the way to a 197.5-197.1 win for the Tide. It also marked the third time in the first six weeks of the season that an Alabama gymnast has been named the SEC's Freshman of the Week. Sims' classmate Katie Bailey won the award on Jan. 14 and Feb. 4. Kim Jacob earned SEC Gymnast of the Week honors on Jan. 14 and Specialist of the Week honors on Feb. 11 to give Alabama five total SEC honors to this point in the season.
