The UCLA Women’s Gymnastics team is garnering some hardware following the 2020 season that saw senior Kyla Ross finish as a finalist for the AAU James E. Sullivan Award.
Ross is joined by fellow seniors Grace Glenn and Gracie Kramer as well as sophomore Margzetta Frazier as Bruins who are taking home All-American honors following this past season. Ross was the Pac-12 Gymnast of the Year and is one of 10 finalists for the national award.
Ross received All-American honors for every event as well as the all-around honors, giving her a school-record 24 awards. She ends her UCLA career as a First-Team All-American on the all-around, floor exercise, uneven bars and balance beam as well as Second-Team honors on the vault.
Her season was also capped with her fourth-straight National No. 1 ranking on the uneven bars, a feat never before been accomplished.
Glenn ended her Bruins career with her second nomination as a First-Team All-American honor on the balance beam, finishing the year as the seventh-ranked gymnast in the event. She made first-team honors a season ago while Glenn made history this past season by becoming the first gymnast ever to score a perfect 10 on the beam in the leadoff position.
The third senior to take home First-Team All-American honors was Kramer, her third year in a row with AA honors but first career First-Team mention. She had a team-high average on the floor and had her first career perfect score this season.
Second-Team All-American honors went to Frazier for her efforts on the uneven bars as she ranked 10th nationally with her average score. Her high score of 9.95 also saw her finish 9.9 or higher in every single meet this past season.
This all comes on the heels of Madison Kocian being named the Pac-12 Scholar-Athlete of the Year for gymnastics.
From the release:
The regular season All-Americans are awarded by the Women’s Collegiate Gymnastics Association (WCGA). Student-athletes with the top eight National Qualifying Scores (NQS) for the regular season (with ties), for each event plus the all around earned All-America honors. Second team All America honors are earned by student-athletes ranked Nos. 9-16 (with ties) in the NQS. The NQS scores are based on meets that occurred before the season was ended because of COVID-19.
Congratulations Kyla, Grace, Gracie and Margzetta!
