Team MVP honors went to senior Lindsey Cheek, who earned first team All-America honors on all three of her events and was the SEC Event Specialist of the Year. Cat Hires received the Suzanne Yoculan No Dream Too Big Award. She earned All-America honors and was a consistent contributor on three events for the Gym Dogs.
