SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Sacramento State gymnast Julia Konner was named the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Newcomer of the Week following her performance in a three-team meet at Stanford. The honor was the second for Konner this season.
Against No. 12 Stanford and No. 19 Arizona, Konner set career marks on both vault and floor. The Bethesda, Md., native scored 9.800 on vault where she helped the team match its season high of 48.875 on the event. Her score bettered her previous best of 9.750 which she received in the first two meets of the year.
On floor, Konner scored 9.750 in her first routine in the lineup. That score was tied for the third highest on the team in the meet.
Sacramento State returns home to face Southeast Missouri on Friday, Jan. 24, at 7 p.m. in The Nest.
