Tide's Dennis SEC Gymnast Of Week
"I think it's exciting," Alabama Coach Sarah Patterson said. "When you see a team that's No. 1 in the country and they've won their third meet against an SEC opponent and a gymnast like Morgan helps elevate her team to that level, I think she's deserving of this award."
Dennis scored a 39.675 to win the all-around against Arkansas and led Alabama to the nation's highest team score, 197.450. Dennis' mark was the second highest of her career and included a career-best 9.975 on the vault and a 9.95 on the floor exercise. She also posted Alabama's top score of the night on the balance beam, a 9.875.
The Westampton, N.J. native is the third Alabama gymnast in as many weeks to earn a conference honor. Ashley Sledge was named SEC Freshman Gymnast of the Week after the Tide's opener at Auburn and Ricki Lebegern earned SEC Gymnast of the Week honors after the Tide beat defending NCAA Champion Georgia.
After two straight weeks at home, Dennis and her teammates head back out on the road this weekend for a rare Saturday contest, taking on Penn State and Minnesota in University Park, Pa. at 7 p.m. ET.
