JULIA KONNER NAMED MPSF GYMNAST OF THE WEEK

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Sacramento State's Julia Konner was named the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Gymnast of the Week following her performances in a pair of meets. The honor is the first for Konner during her career.

Konner finished first in the all-around at the NorCal Classic at Cal on Jan. 9 and then placed second in the team's victory over San Jose State on Jan. 13. In those two meets, she averaged an MPSF leading 39.025 in the all-around after totaling 38.975 at NorCal and 39.075 against SJSU. The senior is also tied for third in the conference on vault (9.787), beam (9.725) and floor (9.800).

Dating back to last season, the Bethesda, Md., native has averaged 38.895 in her last five all-arounds.

Konner's performances have helped Sacramento State post a 4-1 record at the start of the season, including the team's first victory over Stanford in school history. The Hornets are currently ranked 24th nationally with an average 194.438. The team will next compete at Air Force on Saturday, Feb. 21, at 6 p.m. PT.
